At anger management rehab last week, inmates were tasked to research topics of military significance that would help us get out of our crummy moods.  During my research project I found out that star emblems painted on Russian fighter aircraft fuselages identified the following:

red-stars = number of enemy planes pilot shot down
yellow-stars = number of times pilot caused a restart

I preferred Spar when he was on leave.

This is a skin I've had in the works for months. It started as an olive drab/neutral grey scheme, but then I copied this bare metal layer I thought looked ok from another template. Liking the color blue the way I do, I've always liked the 352nd FG markings.  :cool:

Great P-51 skin DW. THe metal looks great and the amount of wear and tear on the the aircraft looks perfect for a combat aircraft. Good stuff!

Again DW... I like. I like how the "X" on the B model with the invasions stripes is covered partially.

In invasions stripes were painted onto the aircraft during the night preceeding the invasion and ther was no time for any fancy masking to protect the aircraft ID's.

Yeah Gonzo, I looked at alot of pictures and color plates of 352nd FG aircraft and alot of them even had half the squadron code painted over. Some did'nt, but I suspect those a/c might have been received later and had the codes painted farther forward from the start.

You mean this a/c Fox?



It's pretty plain, would'nt be too hard to re-create it. Or I could create one with personalized codes, serials etc if you want. Just let me know.

I'm just trying to figure out what "Wheel hubs painted red" means. Does that mean the whole wheel or just the very center where the spokes meet? Otherwise I think I've got everything. I'll pm you a link once I'm done Fox.

Oh, and before SKAT smacks me upside the head, the misspelling of glamourous is intentional and historical!
