My first 100% historical skin made by request.

This P-39D1 was flown by Lt. Robert L. Rosenbloom in the 36th Fighter Squadron, 8th Fighter Group. They were known as the Flying Fiends.

Lt. Rosenbloom was based out of Ward's Drome, New Guinea in 1943. On October 19th, while trying to land his damaged Airacobra, he lost control and crashed into the side of a hill. The aircraft exploded, claiming his life.

This skin is a tribute to him and to all the airman who served in the Pacific Theatre.

Template by Beebop from the void. Additional layers by Jersey D and myself.
A special thanks to JG2_Springer for historical references.

This skin will be uploaded to Flying Legends as soon as it re-opens.

Comments welcome.

Very nice, I like the subtle weathering and runny exhaust.
