Zotz Decals latest in its line of fine quality decal sheets covers the P-51B Mustang in the European Theatre of Operations. These decals have been designed for the new Trumpeter kit in 1/32 scale.

The decals are superbly printed with good colour saturation and excellent register.  As usual the carrier film is ultra thin and my experience with Zotz decals that I have used in the past is that the decals have to be handled carefully and snuggle down into the surface detail well.  I always use decal setting solution but this is not necessary.  The carrier film then almost totally disappears under a coat of clear.The instruction sheet is in full colour and contains the set contains marking for three aircraft as follows:

  • P-51B Mustang Serial number 43-12214, VF-C, “Rebel Queen” flown by Capt Fred Glover of the 4th FG, 336th FS in which he scored 10.3 victories.  The aircraft was finished in Olive Drab upper surfaces and Neutral Grey lower surfaces and has a red propeller spinner.  The aircraft has nose art of a blond lady in red negligee painted on the left engine cowl.  White theatre bands are painted on the upper and lower surfaces of the wing and on the horizontal tail surfaces.

  • P-51B Mustang Mk.III Serial number FB116, PK-G, flown by SQNLDR  Eugeniusz Horbaczewski the OC of No. 315 SQN based at Brenzett in June 1944.  He finished with 16 confirmed victories before being killed in action on 18 Aug 1944.  The aircraft was finished in the US equivalents colours for RAF standard day fighters of Sea Grey and olive drab upper surfaces and sky grey lower surfaces, and has a white nose and propeller spinner.  The aircraft has nose art of a cockerel in a white triangle with a red outline located the left side of the nose just below the windscreen and the polish emblem painted on both sides of the engine cowl.  Black and white theatre bands are painted on the upper and lower surfaces of the wings and around the mid fuselage area and a single white theatre band on the horizontal tail surfaces.  This aircraft was fitted with a Malcolm hood

  • P-51B Mustang Mk.III Serial number FB387, PK-G, also flown by SQNLDR Eugeniusz Horbaczewski the OC of No. 315 SQN based at Brenzett in June 1944.  The aircraft was finished in the US equivalents colours for RAF standard day fighters of Sea Grey and olive drab upper surfaces and sky grey lower surfaces, and has a white nose and propeller spinner.  The aircraft has nose art of a cockerel on a white triangle located on the left side of the nose just below the windscreen and the polish emblem painted on both sides of the engine cowl.  Black and white theatre bands are painted on the upper and lower surfaces of the wings and around the mid fuselage area and a single white theatre band on the horizontal tail surfaces.  This aircraft was fitted with a Malcolm hood

This is a high quality product that will enhance and customise your new 1/32 scale Trumpeter P-51B Mustang.
