Awesome! I absolutely LOVE the flat OD paint. Seeing the A/B/C models in gloss or semi-gloss OD just doesn't look right. I'm so glad the Paul's are doing this one right. She's a real looker and not bad for a RAZORBACK!


Hahaha.......I said RAZORBACK. This thread will quickly spiral and degenerate out of control. :D

Beautiful airplane, just stunning!

Mine too! That was absolutely sacrilegious when Regina's Shangri La got repainted into that awful red "The Healer" paint scheme.

Beautiful, carefully-applied, matte finishes with accurate markings are the best way to treat well a warbird :D

++++++++++++++++++++++++++


Especially when there are hundreds if not thousands of colorful amazing historic and perfectly documented finishes possible for a P-51 B/C !

Jeezz... she looks amazing!

Who's aircraft is this? It's the first I've heard of her... there's no mention in the WIX or Mustangs Mustangs registry. I guess she must be a "new" aeroplane, but what an amazing recreation. Who built her?

Thanks for the photos! Did you take them Jack?

Cheers,
Richard
