    So we are both inspired by the P-51. Mine was Petie 2nd and 3rd. Do any of you WWII history buffs know what the letters on either side of the star and bar represent?

    Just be aware JF that they wonít allow you to put the C and the F together and the reg has to be in a row.

    When I rebuilt my bicycle, It got aluminum paint with invasion stripes, and blue handlebar tape, inspired by Crazy Horse. The P-51 is surely one of the most beautiful airplanes ever built.

    The 2 letters together represented the unit the plane was assigned to and the single letter represented the pilot the aircraft was assigned to.

    Hi team,im now working on cowling,i have a lots of fun because i push the windshield more foward for the look
    and That give me more work after..That is why my cowling going down like That 😩
    But at the end itís looking good to me 🤨(give me your opinion on That)
    so i install cleco on everything and i dont like the space between the cleco..so i manage to install piano hinge..
    much better now..but beside the door like you can see i need to do something???
    I think to make like Lowell and put some fiberglass on doorpost tube..
    i order the spinner and the internal propeller control from murle williamís..
    i have to made the oppening for those blades,pretty easy but now i have to made connections for That .

    A other problem it was the oil tank 😡my cowling is more lower
    so i cut the tank and give That to my nephew and i try to weld it with tig,but he made a mess
    so i re cut the tank and i give That in professional hand and they made a good job..but now my tank are really small 😬tell me if you know what is the minimum i can have in this oil tank???

    I see you have fasteners on the lower cowl. If I were to address the gap at the door post I would simply throw one more fastener in the upper cowl. Of course you may have to weld in a tab to accommodate the female half of the fastener.
