Microscale 72-326 P-51D





Review By:

This particular sheet gives us a nice selection of various mark of P-51Mustang in several different camouflage schemes. Early in Microscale's printing career, they did a huge number of Mustang sheets. In fact, of the many I have purchased over the years, this is the only one that is still complete! Not sure why, but there it is.

The first subject is a P-51D of Capt Robert Welch of the 55 FG and his aircraft 'Miss Marylin II'. This one with the green and yellow trim and the red mustang on the yellow tail is probably the first P-51D that many of us ever saw a picture or drawing of. In fact, it has been around so much that it is almost a cliche!

Next is the P-51B with Malcom hood 'The Iowa Beaut' of Col Gordon Graham of the 355th FG. This one has D-day markings on it, which I always find a real pain to do on Mustangs.

'Miss Miami' for Earnest Fibelkorn and the 77 FS is next. This is in overall metal.

Maj. Louis Norley's 'Red Dog XII' is next. No other information is given, but it has red trim on the nose and rudder.

Finally, is the aircraft of Capt Don Enerson. It is unnamed, but has a large fighting Donald Duck on both sides of the nose and a number of kills. It also has a red nose and spinner as well as D-Day stripes on the unserside of the fuselage.

A nice selection of Mustangs for the enthusiast.
