1/48 P-51H decals

Recommended Posts

Modelsvit has a new tool 1/48 P-51H kit in preparation, and I will definitely do an ANG-centric decal sheet for it. Let me know what you would like to see on it.

Looking forward to this kit (as well as the F-82 they're also talking about!)

I'll of course toss the MASS. ANG hat into the ring...not necessarily the often seen "Irish Air Force" or the "Polish Air Force" P-51Hs but these markings with the flashy yellow trim:

RS Models did one in 1/72 scale

133rd FIS, NH ANG please.  Nose, tail and wingtips are red.

Another red trimmed F-51H of the 133rd FIS, NH ANG circa 1952.NH had several "flights" within the squadron, each trimmed with a different color.  I've seen blue, green, and red for P-51Ds/Hs and blue, green, and orange for F-86Ls.

Andy, if I wasn't so partial to the NH scheme, I'd go for the 101st FIS MASS ANG scheme!

Here's my 1/72 scale RS Models H with the "flashy yellow" MASS ANG markings from the kit decals:

Wow...very nice work. More flashy than I had anticipated!

I wonder if aircraft 464347 was a one off scheme? Commanders aircraft perhaps? I can't find any other photos of MASS ANG aircraft in those markings outside of 4347.

If it's like other yellow-marked Mustangs, it's a target tow bird.

FWIW, Airfix released an F-51D boxing recently. Markings for 2x USAF in Korea and 1 Swedish AF.

PA ANG 146FIS (Pittsburgh).  Both the orange target tow as in the RS kit, and standard markings.

My personal choice would be a NJ ANG P-51H. Because that's what I would want to build.  Fin tip and prop spinner were in red.

But if you ever decided to do another round of P-51D's a good candidate would be West Virginia ANG 44-72948.  It was the last operational Mustang.

OK, makes sense. Probably the same for the overall red PA ANG bird?
