Frank, perhaps have the squadron badge moved from engine to where the black triangle is on the tail boom, apart from that it's all good.


Vin
Yeah, I wasn't sure about its postion on the aircraft. I'm going to give this a try. Thank you for your input, Vin! :D

... oh, what about this? :roll:

It's much easier to design without messing around cutting any graphics due to the odd properties of the P-38'S 3D model.

Frank, not sure about either to be honest, the former due to the concerns you have and the latter due to the badge being a bit too far forward

Frank, perhaps leave it on the engine as it looks like a right PIA to get it on the tailplane.

Once we found an acceptable position it'll stay there and I won't touch it again. Promised. :lol: ;)

Folks,

since the P-51 has been such a success IMHO I'd like to present you a modified version of the P-47. Let me know what you think about it ...
