FG, Tuskegee Airmen, Italy, 1944

Collection. This 2005 model was made primarily for the US market,
which may explain why only 2100 copies were produced. For some reason
the polished metal of this model is darker than the polished metal
of the last Corgi P-51D photographed,
so the everything looks somewhat gloomy and doomy. The model itself
is good as far as Corgi 'D' Mustangs go, though not as colorful as
Bunnie (excepting, of course,
to those with certain artistic bents). Bunnie was another Tuskegee
diecast, produced in 2001.
One of the odd things during this period was that Corgi limited-edition
models had a little 10mm plaque stuck to the stand indicating that
your model number is "xxxx of xxxx Distributed Worldwide".
There was no collector's card.
