FirstLook

 

Lifelike Decals has recently released Part 2 in their series of P-51markings. The decals come in the ubiquitous A5-sized zip-lock bag with folded A4 pages for instructions. These are nicely printed in colour and include detailed notes describing each scheme. I think that a lot of research effort has been made judging by their content. This said, Lifelike do acknowledge where doubt our conflicting information exists. They also include comprehensive stencil markings and a detailed guide for their placement. The decals appear to be of superb quality.

I had the 1/72-scale set to review, but I see from Lifelike Decal's website that the same set is offered in 1/48-scale as Sheet #48023 and 1/32-scale as Sheet #32015. I assume that it is the same as Sheet #72033 in all respects other than in size and price in the 1/32nd case. The four aircraft covered by these sheets are:

  • P-51B, QP-L, "Salem Representative" of Lt. Ralph K. Hofer, 4FG/334FS.

  • P-51D, B3-Y, "Skyczar" of Capt. Fred Munder Jr., 363FG/381FS.

  • P-51B, C3-D, "BogMac Junior" of Capt. John Brown, 363FG/382FS.

  • P-51D, E6-A, "Nancy Lee" of Lt. Richard Baggett, 370FG/402FS.


 

Conclusion

 

These are very good quality decals, which have obviously been well researched. I think that Lifelike Decals has selected interesting and attractive schemes in all cases. I definitely recommend all four sheets. I note that they are marked "Limited Edition", so it may pay order quickly if they appeal to you.

Thanks to Lifelike Decals for these samples.
