P-51B reprint and new ones you'd like to see

Recommended Posts

How about Sweet Clara II of 325th FG (Checkertails)

This decal option was included in the Trumpeter P51-B kit, but they messed up the checkers.

The 'HUN HUNTER/TEXAS' WR-Z 2106448 354thFS / 355th FG would be very nice. :speak_cool:

You can find the reference as illustration #29 page 46 in the Osprey book 'Mustang Aces of the Eighth Air Force' by Jerry Scutts.

I would like to see "Suzy-G", the P-51B that flew with Lou IV in that famous/infamous pic.

 

The only color representation I have found of her is this painting

and in B/W

Shangri-La and Ding Hao rerints are MOST appreciated!Glad to see the Trumpy kit get a little love. Thanks!

 

Oh, how about "Old Crowe"?

There are a lot of good B/C profiles here, including a couple with fin fillet

I guess that she had OD upper half wings and upper spine, huh?

Referring to the decades old,umm, discussion about whether the Mustangs in the pic had blue or green paint (I think its been shown that its green, and I have books with pics that are definitely green, but who knows how many times they were processed. I think they are green).

 

Green?
