P51D HANDS DOWN.
itd have to look like this though
The P-51's with the red painted tail were to signify the Tuskegee group which were an all Black fighter wing who escorted B-17's to Berlin and back. They had the highest success rate of protecting the B-17's of any escorting fighter group. Just a little war trivia. What's not to like about any fast platform for 6 50 cal BMG's. The P-47 had 8 50 cal BMG's, just not quite as fast or agile as the P-51. If I had my dream plane, it would be the P-51, it was the Maserati of the sky in WWII
