  1. The same aircraft (LOU IV) in 1/32 scale from Tamiya is on my bench waiting for finishing paint job and dressed up decals. Hope that I can post it here in spring.

  2. Famous for being well-known? That would make it the George Hamilton of P-51 Mustangs, right?

    Definitely one of those iconic P-51s that you remember forever. Nice model.
