Thought I would post some new pictures of "the Little Lady" for you all to check out. This is an Academy kit which I finished several years ago; the dropped flap feature was great, I really enjoyed that. The kit was overall very nice and inexpensive to boot! The decals, well, this is before Academy improved its decals, so the stars and bars are the only markings used from the kit itself. The codes and everything else came from an Aeromaster sheet for P-51D's. Hope you all enjoy looking at her. Russell










P.S. The white nose doesn't represent any particular group of the 8th air force, I just made it up at the time because I thought it looked good!
