Superscale 48-875: 357 FG P-51B Mustangs

Units: 357 FG




Scott Van Aken


Undoubtedly the most modeled Mustang unit of WWII was the 357 FG and here are three more to add to the mix. Though no kit is specified, I'm sure that the sheet is designed for the Tamiya kit, though it should work with the Monogram version. All are OD upper sides with red /yellow spinners and nose checks.

The first plane is 'Nooky Booky' as flown by Lt 'Kit' Carson of the 362nd FS. He was the group's top ace with 18.5 victories. His plane is in standard OD/Neutral Grey with white wing ID stripes.

Next is 'Pappy's Answer' of the 364th FS. This one has a Malcom Hood and invasions stripes on the upper and lower wings as well as the lower fuselage.

Finally is 'Jersey Bounce' of the 362nd FS. The lower surfaces are in natural metal with full invasion stripes. This aircraft also has ID stripes on the horizontal stabilizers.

The sheet includes full insignia and data markings to do one of the aircraft on the sheet.
