Superscale 72-907: P-51D Mustang

Units: 357 FG




Scott Van Aken

Well, perhaps this one will really be the last 1/72 Superscale sheet. I seemed to have gotten my wires crossed last time. I guess it is fitting that it be one of the more popular subjects and one of the most popular units. All of these 357 FG aircraft are in RAF Dark Green over RAF Medium Sea Grey. Two have unpainted windscreen frames. The Hasegawa P-51D is recommended.

First is 'Gash Hound' from the 363rd FS. This one has the greyed out fuselage insignia.

Next is 'Frenesi', from the 364th FS. It carried Invasion Stripes under the wing and fuselage. The fuselage stripes are included on the sheet.

Finally, 'Little Joe' from the 362 FS. It has the unpainted windscreen frame as does the previous aircraft. No exhaust shrouds on this one.

There are insignia for all and data markings for one, along with a comprehensive data placement sheet. I'm sorry to have heard that these sheets haven't sold as well as hoped. Perhaps some time in the future, but since the last space of time they weren't done lasted over 10 years, I doubt it.
