Aeromaster 48-738: The 55 FG at War pt 1

Units: 55 FG




Scott Van Aken

How about some great Mustang schemes? This particular sheet is for the D model and the recommended kit is by Tamiya, though there are equally buildable kits by Hasegawa, Monogram and many others. The P-51D has been done by a LOT of model makers!

This sheet covers three planes from two of the squadrons of the 55th FG. There are insignia for all and data markings for one with enough ID bands for all the aircraft involved. All the yellow parts on the planes will have to be painted by the modeler prior to applying decals.

First up is from the 338 FS in its earlier(?) markings of a white/red checkered rudder with red edged fin. These are provided as decals to make it easier for you. Note that the radio mast is also red.

Next is a different scheme from the 338 FS on 'Katydid'. The fin and radio mast on this one are green.

Finally, from the 343 FS, is this one with the yellow rudder and OD fuselage and upper horizontal stals. The lower nose is left unpainted and the red cheat line is provided as a decals for you.
