Now for a P-51B

Personally, I like the P-51B better, mostly for its look.

This P-51B was done with Aeromaster decals and the Falcon Malcolm hood to do Don O'Hara's "Shillelagh" of the 353rd FS, 354th FG. As a wingman and element leader from April 1944 to the end of the year, he flew 81 missions and scored 1 victory and 2 probables.

  1. Another beauty, Tom! Love the parade of Mustangs!

    I like these early P-51s with the Malcolm Hood.

  2. Like Jeff said..."I love a parade" - I also like the "B" better than the "D" ...(same as the Jugs - Razorbacks look meaner to me).

  3. Great 'B' bird, what's the theme?, 51 P-51's,Keep them coming.

  4. Nice job, Tom. I’m not a huge Mustang guy, but do prefer the “B” too.

  5. I definitely prefer this canopy.
