  1. This is a great story PK. It reminds me of the B-24 crew of the South African Air Force that got shot down over Warsaw whilst ferrying supplies for the resistance fighters during the uprising. After the war a memorial was errected in their honour. A great story and tribute Pk. The Mustang looks great!

    Beautifully done P-51 and I am touched by the tribute that was paid to the crew of "Double Trouble". A true honor and homage to brave fighting men. Thank you.

  7. Two things, P.k., first, the Mustang looks terrific, those colours really suit it, very neat job. Second, the story, it really adds something to the model and helps to bring home to us the reality of war.
