F-51D, 12th FBS, 18thFBG, Korea 1952Forgotten war Group Build,1/72 Airfix

Another gem of a kit. The fit is great, as are the decals. I did the Korean war selection kit decals. Which must have been a popular plane as Tamiya's and Italeri's 1/72 also offers the same bird in their 1/72 kits. As great as the Mustang was in it's major role in ground attack in , it was vulnerable to ground fire particularly to its coolant system. If there were any left at the time P-47's probably would have fared better.
