Superscale 48-1194: P-51B Mustangs

Units: 357th FG




Scott Van Aken

Moving to some Mustangs, here is a nice sheet that has three P-51Bs. The Tamiya kit is recommended, but if you have the Monogram version, I believe these will fit that one as well as the version by Accurate Miniatures. All of these have Olive Drab upper surfaces.

First is "Rubber Check" as flow by Walter Perry. This one has a Malcolm hood and like all the others had a red and yellow striped spinner that you'll have to paint. Underside is Neutral Grey. This aircrat has white stripes on the wings and stabs.

Next is Robert Brown's "Chicago Gun Moll" with a goodly number of mission markings and Neutral Grey undersides. There are no exhaust shrouds on this plane.

Finally, "Geronimo" of John Pugh. His has the lower surface and part of the fuselage stripped of paint. It carries a Malcolm hood and has a white fin band, which will have to be painted on.

The sheet has insignia, data markings and wing bands for one aircraft along with an excellent data placement guide.
