First Look

For years now, Kagero has been publishing a wide variety of aircraft monographs and in many of these titles the authors provide an impressive selection of color profiles and even decals for selected profiles. These decals usually covered subjects that were largely overlooked by most other decal companies. Here we have Kagero's latest decal releases without the monograph for your favorite 1/48 P-51D Mustang kit. This set covers three colorful subjects that served in the RAF Polish Squadrons that again have not been seen as decals that I can recall.

P-51D P-51D

The examples presented here include:

  • Mustang Mk.III, FZ111, 309 Sqn, WC-V, RAF Andrews Field, UK, 1945
  • Mustang Mk.IV, KH663, 303 Sqn, PD-L, RAF Hethel, UK, 1946
  • Mustang Mk.IVA, KM112, 303 Sqn, PD-D, RAF Hethel, UK, 1946

As with the Kagero monographs, these decals are accompanied by large color profiles presented in all four views (top, bottom, left and right sides) to provide good painting and decal placement instructions.

If you're looking for some nice subjects that will be different than most other Mustangs on the contest table, here are three good choices.

My sincere thanks to Kagero Decals for this review sample!
