Another Tamiya P-51D
The 353rd Fighter Group hasn’t gotten a lot of love from the decal makers. This is Group Commander Glenn Duncan’s “Dove of Peace X.” Duncan was shot down over Holland in “Dove of Peace IX”, a P-47D, in the fall of 1944 and was hidden by the Resistance. He made contact with Allied forces in February 1945 and returned to the group, where he resumed command, flying this P-51D till the end of the war. The 353rd was the fourth 8th AF fighter group to go operational in August 1943.
As usual, True Details cockpit and Falcon canopy.
