Folks: I've done some looking around and I can't seem to find definitive measurements for the WWII Invasion stripes for a P-51 Mustang. Wikipedia says this: The stripes were five alternating black and white stripes. On single-engine aircraft each stripe was to be 18 inches (46 cm) wide, placed 6 inches (15 cm) inboard of the roundels on the wings and 18 inches (46 cm) forward of the leading edge of the tailplane on the fuselage. National markings and serial number were not to be obliterated. I figure someone here has a quick answer...so what do you think? I thought the wing stripes were a different width than the fuselage stripes. Thanks in advance! Chris
