1/48 Tamiya P-51B

I've added another "Aces in 1:48 Scale" image to my collection.  The Tamiya 1:48 P-51B kit is a lot of fun to build.  I've also enjoyed learning more about Don Gentile, the ace and pilot of this aircraft.  I tweeked a second P-51B using Photoshop to look like John Godfrey's aircraft but decided not to put it in the image.  He is just off camera flying cover for Gentile.  Gentile and Godfrey were perhaps the most well known fighting duo in the European theatre during WW2.
