LPS Hobby from Brazil has returned with some new decals targeted for the 1/72nd scale modeler. In this release, they've produced markings for three 8th Air Force P-51B Mustangs. The subjects include:

P-51 P-51

  • P-51B-15-NA, 42-106950, 354 FS/355 FG, Steeple Morden, UK, 1944, 'The Iowa Beaut', as flown by Lt. Robert Hulderman
  • P-51B-15-NA, 42-106839, 374 FS/361 FG, Bottlsam, UK, 1945, 'Bald Eagle', as flown by Lt. Robert Eckfeldt
  • P-51B-15-NA, 42-106875, 375 FS/361 FG, Little Walden, UK, 1944, 'Queen Jean' as flown by Capt. William Shackelford

For some nice alternatives to the kit markings in the Academy 1/72 P-51B kit, give these a try!

My sincere thanks to LPS Hobby for this review sample!
