    1. North American F-51D Mustang
      #412943 FF-943 Korea
      12th FBS, 18th FBG: this option builds your mustang looking very mean, with sharks teeth and eyes on the nose of the plane, USAF markings, unit emblems, all the standard USAF markings, and also the scripture on the nose “Was that too fast?”
    2. North American F-51D Mustang
      #474941 FF- 941 (Col. W. Clark) Korea. Col. W. Clark, CO of the 18th FBG: This will build your plane as, no surprises here, Col. W. Clark's bird that he flew during Korea, standard USAF markings, only unique thing about this set of markings is the Red, Yellow, Orange, White, and Blue stripes for the tail. And also what I believe is a unit emblem to go just under the front of the canopy.
    3. North American F-51D Mustang
      #474651 FF-651 (Capt. J.W. Rogers)
      Korea Capt. J. W. Rogers, 36th FBS, 8th FBW: Again, no surprises, these are the markings for Capt. Rogers Mustang. Standard USAF markings, Red tail stripe, but, one thing about this plane, and I’m not sure if you are meant to choose one out of the two, or if Mr. Rogers simply had a fancy for vandalising USAF property … but it comes with two sets of Nose Art, on the right side “Red Eraser”, the head of what appears to be Either Dave O’Meara on a very bad day…lol, kidding Dave, or Satan wearing a Pilots helmet and goggles, also for this side of nose art are two white dice.
      On the Right side, are the words “BUCKEYE BLITZ VI” and again, the Devil in Pilot gear.
      This set of markings also comes with his “kill list”, where Col. Rogers has drawn up a bomb for each time he did away with of one more North Korean.
