North American P-51D Mustang (Rosco C. Brown,Tuskegee Airman)
Matchbox Collectibles. Platinum Edition. Very nice Mustang. I've been looking for a copy of this particular version, and lucked out with a winning bid on ebay. Like my other Platinum Editions, this model was copyrighted in 2000. This is my second Tuskegee in this paint scheme, the first being a Corgi. In this case, the Corgi has the better paint, mainly because that model has available red-painted main gear and a polished fuselage. While a polished surface isn't the most desirable, the silver paint on the Matchbox is very speckly, and not all that attractive. Nonetheless, it is a most desirable model, and one I am happy to add to the collection.
