  1. I would think natural metal would reflect surrounding colors. Not like a mirror since it is not polished. So blue skies blue reflection. To me it looks like the non painted areas have a blueish tint to it.Reflection from the sky? Oh well these P-51's colors will be discus for years to come. Rick
  2. Here is mine all in 1/72: 1- Tamiya P-51B 2- Eduard Nieuport 11 3- Hasegawa P-40 B/C 4- Hasegawa P-39 series 5- Eduard Albatros C III
  3. Sorry this is the best I can do and the tail is not in the photo but the other two P-51D's that I cropped off do not have the dorsal fin. The photo is in 'To War with the Yoxford Boys' printed by Eagle Edition. Rick
  4. That didn't work. Well I scanned lowest setting and it is still to large. PM me your email and I will send it that way. Rick
  5. I think in one of the books I have there is a photo. I will take a look today and see. Off the top of my head I don't think it did and what Sean said I agree with him. I do remember the 'O' in the codes had some thing different. I will get back to you. Rick
  6. Sorry no. 'Tarheel Hal' was a P-47D-30-RA which is a latter model P-47. They didn't get to combat not until 1945 maybe December 1944. By then no invasion stripes on the wings or fuselage were painted on new aircraft. Rick By that time all stripes were gone on the wing47D-30-RA
  7. Going by the landing gear doors the bottom of the left wing is black. Might be Lt. Grey or Lt. blue used to paint out the British roundel or to make the black crosses stand out. Dk green and Dk earth top colors is another clue it is a early MK IIA . My guess would be not in the desert since there is mud on the wheels and no volks filter.
  8. Ok I see what your talking about. I miss understood . Good drawings I save them, Thanks.
  9. You are correct. The MK IV I'm thinking was only in Burma Campaign. I'm going by memory on that. I don't see that it is a larger radiator. The armored radiator was wider not longer and in photo that area is very dark plus angle maybe makes it look bigger. Sorry I just don't see it as bigger. As for a MKIIB. I don't see the outer guns.
  10. To me it looks like a Hurricane MKIIA. I don't remember seeing that prop on a MKI. The nose area looks longer like a MKII but it could be the spinner. Sorry not 100% sure with out the serial number. Rick
  11. And they are ???????????? Interested in these myself. Thanks
  12. I use a plastic stencil with all sizes of circles I got at hobby lobby . Sit the spinner in the circle that will work. I work from larges diameter to smallest. I have been using this for a while and not very expensive. Rick
