Decals by AMtech: 24101 for P-51D Mustang

Units: 332 FG




Scott Van Aken

This is the first sheet I've seen from Decals by AMtech and it is for the 1/24 Mustang. You have a choice of either the Trumpeter/Hobbycraft kit, the Airfix kit, or the older Bandai version as either one will fill the bill nicely. The sheet includes two aircraft, both in bare metal with red tails, noses and wing tips. They also have yellow wing bands. The sheet includes one set of insignia as few of us will do more than one aircraft in this scale!

Black 10 is from the 100 FS/332 FG and flow by 1/Lt Robert Williams, who scored two victories flying 'Dutchess Arlene' in late March 1945.

Black 42 is from the 301 FS/332 FG and flown by 1/Lt Charlie White. 'Creamer's Dream' scored his one kill on 1 April 1945.

It would be normal for DAM to choose markings from their earlier line of TGR releases and they have done so with this, picking two nice markings from their Tuskeegee Airmen sheet.
