Superscale 72-807: P-51D Mustang

Scott Van Aken

This second Mustang sheet provides markings for three more aces; two of them who became well known post-war. Again, the sheet has insignia for two and data for one.

First off is Richard Turner's 'Short Fuse' from the 356 FS/354 FG. Colors are limited to the red nose.

Next is Robin Olds' 'Scat VI' from the 434 FS/479 FG. Robin Olds made quite a name for himself flying F-4 Phantoms as 8th TFW boss during Vietnam where he is officially credited with 4 Migs. Many feel his true score is higher and that rather than share kills, he often gave them to the other pilots involved in the fight.

Finally, Chuck Yeager's 'Glamorous Glen III' from the 363 FS/357 FG. This one has the usual red/yellow nose markings and a red rudder.

Again, for kits there are many, but the Tamiya and Hasegawa versions will probably get the most use.
