This latest sheet from Superscale is a very nice Mustang sheet. Both aircraft are from the 20th Fighter group and both are in overall unpainted metal (for the most part). Of course, the recommended kit is the Tamiya 1/32 Mustang, but I see no reason why these markings should not fit any other big scale Mustang kit that you might have. The decals are printed by Cartograf and offer insignia and basic data markings for a single aircraft.

The initial offering is Sad Sack from the 79th Fighter Squadron. This is the mount of Major MJ Gilbertson during 1944. The sheet provides the black and white nose markings, but the black on the spinner and the wing/tailplane stripes will need to be painted. The spinner tip on this is unpainted metal.

The other is an early P-51D without the dorsal fin extension. This is the mount of Lt. Moon Mullins with the 55th Fighter Squadron. This aircraft has the upper surfaces painted in Olive Drab. No wing or tailplane bands. The black and white on the nose and spinner will need to be painted. This aircraft has a very fetching nose art.

A very nice pair of P-51s for you to choose from.
