Hey guys,

I'm starting this Revell P-51B (no, I'm not going to graft a Hasegawa nose and replace the wings) and the decals in the kit are shot.

I have the CAM set 32-158 for Leakin' Liz and WD*C from the 4th FG, but I'm wondering if anyone knows of any other decals for US B-model Mustangs.

In particular, I'm looking for anything colorful - both of these birds are rather dull.

Otherwise, I'll probably scrounge something up from the spares box.

TIA,

Jeff

Jeff,

In one of RoG's kits of the MK III, there are also decal's for Kidd Hofer's "Salem Representative". I forget the kit number. I sold the kit to Hacker.

Hacker, do you have the kit #?
