    That's actually a great photo!. If you look at my earlier post, you will see the fin fillet front lines up almost with the aft edge of the national insignia. Your pictures, while it doesn't show the fin, shows enough of the rear fuselage to see that there is NO fillet at that time! That would be a perfect reference. Camo lines, kill markings, weathering. It is a perfect "in the moment" reference, and as it has invasion stripes, you can do the build for the D-Day GB!! Sean

    That P-51 was one of the first 800 P-51D's that were built WITHOUT a dorsal fin. It was most likely delivered and entered service without one. That being said, the dorsal fin was provided as a field mod kit and was added to many of the aircraft in the field. You can even find pictures of the fin added to P-51B/C's.( although the last few "C" models built rolled of the line with the fillet added For example, this famous picture has both fined and non-fined D models: and here is a "C" model with one fitted in the field: now, to answer your question about the discrepancies, the pictures I can find do not show the tail, only the nose. Many people may have made assumptions one way or another. it may even have had no fillet at first, then had one added. Without any real photographic proof, it can go either way. Do what makes your heart happy!! Sean
  6. depending on price, I might get one of these! It would look good beside my A-1's. Sean

    1/48 MPM He 177A-5 with Nautilus wing spar

    Very cool! Gonna follow this build for sure. The historical pictures I have seen do not do that nacelle justice. It is so much beefier than I would have guessed. Looking forward to seeing more, Sean ohh...and I have a three year old who loves to "Make airplanes with Daddy" but I guess I have been lucky cause she hasn't broken anything yet! I just give her a couple of small clamps, and old brush, a file, some sand paper and a few toy planes to mess around with. Fingers crossed for the future of my collection.
