Aeromaster 72-209: Yellow Nose Mustangs of the 361st FT, pt 3

Units: 361 FG




Scott Van Aken

The third 1/72 Yellow Nose sheet offers a nice mix of Mustangs. There are kits out there by Tamiya, Hasegawa, Monogram, Airfix and Heller just to name a few that you could use when doing this sheet. All are in bare metal with the later yellow spinner, forward cowling and upper cowling markings that were used.

First is 'Death's Angel' as flown by Harry Chapman. No ID bands on this one and it has a yellow rudder.

William Shackleford's  375 FS P-51B is named 'Queen Jean' and had invasion stripes on the lower fuselage and wings.

Finally, 'Detroit Miss' as flow by Urban Drew. This pilot has the distinction of knocking down two Me-262s. His aircraft has a red fin tip, wing tips and canopy frame. It does carry the black ID stripes and has Invasion stripes on the lower fuselage.

Once again, full insignia and data are provided for all three aircraft.
