Like your Mustangs with checkered noses? Well this sheet should be perfect for you. All of the aircraft are in bare metal and are late Mustangs so you have several very nice kits to choose from. The recommended ones are from Tamiya, but I don't see why Hasegawa, Monogram or any other P-51D should work just as well, though you may have to fudge a bit on the decals to get them to fit properly. I should mention that there are enough markings for two of the three aircraft on the sheet. Not shown is a half sheet with the wing and tail bands as well as some more 'extra' black checks.

First plane is 'Dallas Doll' of the 352nd FS. It has partial D-Day stripes under the fuselage as do all the other aircraft on this sheet.

Next is 'Willit Run?' from the 351st FS. This plane carries a rear view mirror.

Finally is 'Double Trouble' from the 352nd FS. This aircraft sports a yellow rudder and a camera attached to the armor plate.
