Well, I tried skinning for the first time yesterday. It was fun and rewarding, as expected. But no one ever said how easy it would be- after 20 minutes of work I had a workable paint job!

This should be a riot- I've made a Me-109G in Israeli colors. The Israelis actually used both P-51's and Me-109's to great effect in 1948 and 1956. The Me-109's had Jumo engines, the ones intended for bombers. But for all the Hurricane fans, they modified the P-51 by replacing the .50's with 4 20mm cannons. Now that's a fighter!

So, expect to see a Me-109 with some pretty unorthodox paint job in the skies soon.

not meaning to be a nit-picker but some P51s had 20mm cannon in WW2

Your'e probably right about them being good fighters though /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
