Mustang, Mrs. Bonnie, Lt. Col. Bill Dunham, 348th FG, Ie Shima, 1945
Archive, Nose Art Collection. I ordered this model because
of the stripes on the tail (both vertical and horizontal). However,
I fell in love with it because it's a beautiful example of the modeller's
art. I was so impressed after examining it the first time, I actually
showed it to my wife. Even she liked it, and normally when my wife
looks at a diecast airplane all she sees is a hunk of metal with paint
on it (which, in the final analysis, it is; but my wife is much more
practical than I am).
This is my second polished Corgi, and I've been greatly impressed
with both. It's also my second Nose Art model, and I've found the
Nose Art panels very impressive. The panel for this model is made
of polished metal and is approximately 6" by 3". The panel
is clearly printed on the front and painted zinc-oxide on the back.
For the Mustang collector, this one is a real must. Highly recommended.
