Thanks guys for the kind words.
Several years ago I picked up a set of Korean War decals from Aero Master. (Part #48-100).
This is a pretty cool set of decals as it has markings for a F9F-5 Panther, F-86 Sabre, F-80C “Shooting Star”, Vought F4U-4, and lastly a F-51D named “Buckeye Blitz VI” from the 36th FBS, 8th FBW in Korea, 1950 This is the same markings as an option shown on the side of the kit box.
I’m planning on using this set on my 1/48 scale F-51 Tamiya kit (which just may end up migrating into this build too………………..) if the kit supplied decals don’t work well. I plan on doing some research first though, just in case the manufacturer’s got it a little wrong…………..
as I said earlier, your wonderful F-51 is what inspired this build log here. Thanks again my friend !!!!
Thanks David. I like the Blue nosed Mustangs too………. Years ago I built an old 1/48 Monogram kit and used the markings of “Petie 2nd” HO*M on it. I may end up posting a small article about it here soon, as it was the first plane I used bare metal foil on……………….. Thanks for the vote of confidence my friend.
Hey Craig !!! No buddy, this one doesn’t have the pilot figure you mentioned………… Sorry, but even if it did, my figure painting skills are not on par, so I probably wouldn’t use it anyhow.
