First Look

Warbird Decals produced a really nice set of decals covering five nose art examples from the famed 332 Fighter Group - the Tuskegee Airmen. The subjects in this release include:

P-61 P-61

  • P-51C, 100 FS/332 FG, 3, Ramatelli, Italy, 1944, as flown by Capt WW Crockett, 'Daisy Mae'
  • P-51C, 100 FS/332 FG, 66, Ramatelli, Italy, 1944, as flown by LtCol Benjamin O. Davis, 'By Request'
  • P-51D, 100 FS/332 FG, 10, Ramatelli, Italy, 1944, as flown by Lt Spurgeon Ellington, 'Lollipop II'
  • P-51C, 302 FS/332 FG, 73, Ramatelli, Italy, 1944, as flown by Capt Wendell Pruitt, 'Alice-Jo'

This set provides some interesting P-51C/D options, all sized for the Tamiya kits.
