Lifelike Decals 1/48 North American P-51 Mustang Part 1 Decal First Look

By Michael Benolkin

Date of Review May 2006 Manufacturer Lifelike Decals
Subject North American P-51 Mustang Part 1 Scale 1/48
Set Number 48015 Skill Level Basic
MSRP (USD) $16.50

First Look

Lifelike Decals from Japan turns out some colorful and nicely printed subjects. In this set, we have four distinctive P-51 Mustangs that will definitely compliment either the Hasegawa or Tamiya 1/48 P-51D kits or the Hasegawa P-51K.

P-51D P-51DP-51D

This decal set provides markings for four aircraft:

  • P-51D-15-NA, 44-15459, 308 FS/31 FG, HL-B, Nov 1944, 'American Beauty'
  • P-51D-10-NA, 44-14733, 370 FS/359 FG, CS-L, Mar 1945, 'Daddy's Girl'
  • P-51D-10-NA, 44-14570, 335 FS/4 FG, WD-D, Nov 1944, 'Thunder Bird'
  • P-51K-10-NT, 42-12017, Deputy CO/348 FG, Aug 1945, 'Mrs. Bonnie'

As you can see in the decal image, this set comes complete with a full set of national markings, distinctive unit markings, and a wealth of maintenance stencils. If you're looking for a colorful alternative that isn't from the mainstream Superscale/Eagle Strike/Aeromaster line-up, here is a nice way to be different!

You can purchase these decals directly from Lifelike Decals. My sincere thanks to Lifelike Decals for this review sample!
