Aeromaster 48-795: The Iwo Jima Mustangs part 2

Units: See Review




Scott Van Aken

Sheet two has three more nicely done Iwo-based P-51Ds. Again, Tamiya kits are recommended and the large markings are sized for this kit. All are unpainted metal with OD anti-glare panels. Like the previous batch, there are twin IFF antennas on the spine and  and an antenna on the lower fuselage. All carry shrouded exhaust.

First is from the 462 FS/506 FG and is named 'Dinny B'. Not other colors aside from the empennage stripes.

The green-tailed aircraft, 'Hel-eter/Little Toddie', is from the 457 FS/506 FG. It has a large rabbit for the cockpit artwork.

The last option is 'Jeanne VIII' from the 78 FS/15 FG. Yellow and black for the spinner wing /tailplane tips and fin tip. The black bands are supplied and you paint the yellow. You'll also have to paint the back of the spinner.

All three of these carry nose art for which the finely detailed but quite fragile decals are provided. Simply put down the white background and apply the artwork. There are enough insignia for two and data markings for one.
