P-51D Mustang, Petie 2nd, Capt. John C. Meyer, 352nd FG, 487th FS, Eighth Air Force
Aviation Archive. This model can be discribed in one four-letter word: d-u-l-l. The whole thing is just sort of blanko. The only decoration is the blue nose and the badges below the left-side of the cockpit. Otherwise, I just want to look elsewhere.

Tough paint, wrong place. The paint and insiginia are all crisp and thickly applied. Because of a poor fit, the engine cover fell off several times, but even after hitting the hardwood floor at least twice, the blue paint never chipped. However, the paint, when applied at the factory, was over-sprayed on the left-side of the cowling, just ahead of the canopy.

P-51D Mustang, Gentleman Jim, Capt. Jim Browning, 363rd FS, 357th FG, 1944

Aviation Archive Eighth Air Force Collection. Colorful, well-built model, with good paint job and interesting detailing. Corgi took the time and effort to paint the exhaust stacks, something it didn't do with Petie 2nd, AA32204.
