Hi Tom,Do not forget the details !Look at your tailfin and rudder.Your model has the wrong tailfin.The model P51 ROTW used had a fixed top on the tailfin.The P51 must have differend tails.Regards

Hi Tom,You DO NOT have a different tailfin.The tailfin and the way it moves is a part of the model you and I can`t change.Most Mustangs do not have a fixed top.The plane Jean used as example for the model must have had that kind oftailfin.Alomost all other P51 we want to make a livery of, have the other kind of tailfin, so we have to improvise and change the colorsceme in a way wich make things look realistic.On your plane the moving rudder should be blue and no blue part should stay fixed while moving the rudder.You have to make the painting accordingly to the model.Start FLY and launch your Pinky-Bird now zoom in on the tailfin andmove the rudder.Then , start SUSU and look to the tail again,

Hi from a Mac Flyer,Just wondering if, when the Mac version of the P51 is released, your beautiful repaint will work OK with the Mac version?Best,Joel

Hi Joel,there is only one type of difference between the PC and the Mac version: the Dll. All the rest of the aircrafts is the same.About tha ROTW-P51, Matthew Horridge is writing the Dll for the Mac.Regards,

Well you can release yours instead... it looks better... Tommorrow I'm going skiing, and then I have one week before leaving for the army! Four months without fly, because when I come back for a day, I doubt that I will, Fly, my girl friend is already mad because I'm leaving so I won't make my case worst...cheers and thanks for the photo real tips..cheers
