Superscale 48-1067: P-51B/D Mustangs

Units: 357 FG

This is a good idea. This sheet covers three aircraft flown by Clarence 'Bud' Anderson while he was with the 362nd FS. It consists of one P-51B and two P-51Ds. Once again, the Tamiya kit is the one recommended. All of Bud Anderson's planes were named 'Old Crow'

First one is his P-51B and is marked in OD/Neutral grey with just the white nose carried by all P-51Bs in the UK.

Next is his OD/Neutral Grey P-51D with white wing/stab ID stripes. This aircraft had 'whitewall' tires.

The final, unpainted metal P-51D is the same as his previous plane with the paint removed. A red rudder was added and the invasion stripes on the lower fuselage was maintained.

There you have it, three planes flown by the same pilot. Insignia and data markings for one of these options is included with the sheet.
