The folks at Cutting Edge Modelworls turned out great aftermarket decals with some of the best instructions/color profiles on the market. In this set, we have two distinctive P-51Ds of flown by two notable aces.
The two aircraft covered in this set are:
- P-51D-10-NA, 44-14450, 362 FS/357 FG, B6-S, 'Old Crow' as flown by Captain Clarence 'Bud' Anderson, 1944
- P-51D-15-NA, 44-143318, 364 FS/357 FG, C5-N, 'Frenesi' as flown by Lt Hom Hayes
These two schemes are popular subjects for Mustang builders and now Cutting Edge has not only produced these for you in 1/32 scale, they've tailored them for both the Hasegawa and DML Mustang kits. You'll note the checkerboard nosebands? There are two different sets provided for each subject, one that will fit the Hasegawa nose profile, the other for the DML (since the noses are a bit different between the two kits). One set of extensive maintenance stencils is also provided on a second decal sheet.
This set provides two nice camouflaged Mustangs for those who are still a little gun shy about doing bare metal aircraft.
My sincere thanks to Meteor Productions for this review sample! They are unfortunately no longer in business.
