First Look

P-51B Mustang in the ETO Part 1 P-51B Mustang in the ETO Part 1

The latest new decal set from Zotz caters to the new 1/32 P-51B Mustang produced by Trumpeter. This set provides three distinctive aircraft. The color profiles show the proper placement of the early ID stripes that were worn on the wings and horizontal stabs as well as the D-Day stripes later worn on the type. The aircraft in this set are:

  • P-51B-5-NA, 43-12214, 336 FS/4 FG, VF-C, 'Rebel Queen', early 1944, as flown by Capt Fred Glover
  • Mustang Mk.III, FB387, RAF 315 Sqn (Poland), PK-G, as flown by Sqn Leader Eugeniusz Horbaczewski, 1944
  • Mustang Mk.III, FB116, RAF 315 Sqn (Poland), PK-G, as flown by Sqn Leader Eugeniusz Horbaczewski, June 1944

The two aircraft flown by Squadron Leader Horbaczewski were equipped with the Malcolm hood to improve rearward visibility. You'll have to find an aftermarket hood or steal one out of the Revell kit (if you have one with the hood that is).

As you can see, this set will really enhance the appearance of the Trumpeter kit, though these should work on the Revell 1/32 P-51B if you're so inclined.

For more information about this set and the other releases from Zotz Decals, visit their website at www.zotz-decals.com.

My sincere thanks to Zotz Decals for this review sample!
