Does anyone know if a colour profile exists for A/c 542 44-72570 from this unit. I think I have seen one before but cannot track it down.

I had some nice shot of another of their P-51Ds called "My Madge" flown by Goldie Marcott but lost them. Went to my friend Jim's hanger to see his P-51 with his new 0 SMOH HS prop on it and there they were is the hanger display case with a bunch of other cool stuff I'd forgotten about!

BTW...as for my trip to see youse guys...its gonna be sometime next month probably on a Saturday. How would that work out for you? I haven't been to Philly very much so I am not sure how to get there. :oops: I'll probably be travelling the turnpike. :wink:

Thanks,
Nathan
