I think the reason that I enjoy your "P-51 Who" section is that I get such a kick out of the "olden days" photos. I particularly like "the way they were" shots such as this one of the Roundtree/Conti machine (44-63542) just the way it sat for years.

Hi Guys: Can any of you give more info about the service of this plane in USAF colours?

I am building one in 1/72 and found the old HAWK 1/48 chrome plated kit have in the assembly instructions a pic of this one and a colour print in the box, and by this reason I also want to know how a F51D-20 block airframe has survived in USAF service until deactivation in 1957. BTW one modeler built one in 1/48 and said she was "Target Tug" and was wondering of which ANG or AF squadron she was flown.

Hi, Does anyone know the aircraft's military history? The aircraft is now owned by Jeff Clyman but still has the same reg. N51HR. Thanks
