This next new sheet from Exito Decals covers three P-51D Mustangs of the 357th FG. Something nice is that two of these are early D models without the fin fillet. Perfect for those looking for alternative markings for the recent Eduard and Airfix kits.

First up is Passion Wagon flown by Avral Robertson of the 362nd FS in early fall of 1944. This is OD over neutral grey with invasion stripes on the lower surfaes.

In a very similar scheme is Reluctant Rebel from the 363 FS, flown by Robert Foy in late July 1944.

Finally, a later, unpainted metal plane with a red rudder from the 363rd FS. This one is Shady Lady flown by John Miller in late spring 1945.

Decals are superbly printed by Cartograf and this sheet is also available in 1/72 scale. What makes this set truly unique is that each of the markings options' placement diagrams are really full size color prints suitable for framing. The front gives left and right while on the back are upper and underside images as well as notes and sometimes a photo or two of the aircraft in question. Paint references are with AK and Mr Hobby Color, but most brands make the shades used.
