In addition to printing high-quality markings for other decal companies, Fantasy Printshop also produces their own decals under the brand name of Euro Decals. Until recently these have tended to be national markings, serials and codes, and generic decals, but we are starting to see a flurry of decal releases for specific aircraft subjects.
The latest of these cover late bubbletop Mustangs - P-51D, F-51D and Mustang Mk.IV. Two earlier sets featuring the same subjects were released last year in 1/72 and 1/48 scales, and now it is the turn of 1/32 scale.
Markings are supplied for six subjects in a variety of finishes and colourful markings. it is a very cosmopolitan collecton, with six different nationalities on the one sheet.
NORTH AMERICAN MUSTANG MK.IV, KH673 GL-N, “SWEETPEA”, 5 SQN. SAAF, ITALY, APRIL 1945
NORTH AMERICAN F-51D MUSTANG K”, 1 SQN., ROKAF, CHINHAE AIR BASE, AUGUST 1950
NORTH AMERICAN MUSTANG MK.IV, NZ2427, “27”, 3 SQN. TERRITORIAL AIR FORCE, RNZAF, LATE 1940S
NORTH AMERICAN P-51D MUSTANG, 44-11222, CV-I, “JOLIE HÉLÈNE”, 368TH FS, 359TH FG, USAAF, 1945
NORTH AMERICAN J-26 MUSTANG, 26115, “K/4”, F.4, FRÖSÖN, SWEDEN, 1951
NORTH AMERICAN F-51D MUSTANG, A68-563, O-MP, RAAF, 1945
National markings are provided for all the options, so you can finish six models with this good-value release.
Instructions are supplied in an eight page stapled booklet with full colour four views and notes on each subject. Paint callouts for Humbrol, Xtracolor, Xtracrylix and Lifecolor are also included for each.
The decal sheets are printed perfectly by Fantasy Printshop. TColours look great, and the glossy printing is in register.
There is one large sheet and a smaller sheet with some additional markings.
This is a very welcome release from Fantasy Printshop for any P-51D Mustang kit with the fin fillet.
Thanks to Fantasy Printshop for the review sample
