That's one pretty P-38! Love the NMF and the markings. Did you paint the d-Day stripes o the bottom, or are they decals? Congrats Bill, and thanks for sharing!

That's a beautiful plane and a wonderful tribute! My brother went to school in Steubenville. I'm thrilled to see this honoring someone from there.

Thanks Guys...Sorry for Delay in Response.

Gil.. Stripes are painted and Black undercoating for Alclad was the Black section of the Stripes.

Heres a Look at the Business end and the Karaya Gun Barrels that are really nice.
