Couple of more Pacific Mustangs on this sheet. Suggested kit is the Tamiya kit though others would probably work just as well. These are both overall unpainted metal with OD anti-glare panels and are both late war aircraft.

First is from the 76 FS/23 FG in 1945. It has a black and white segmented spinner. It also carries a DF loop antenna on the rear spine. This is quite a common addition for those planes in China due to the long distances they had to fly.

The other is from the 45th FS/15th FG on Iwo Jima in 1945. This has a black and green segmented spinner. It also has additional radio gear in the form of twin IFF antennas on the upper spine and a new VHF radio antenna between the gear doors on the lower fuselage.

The sheet provides all the unique markings for both lanes and insignia/data for one, including a set of dive angle stripes.
