Revell P-51"Flying Dutchman" 1/32 by Javlin

Recommended Posts

your welcome...though I do have to apologize for going off topic.  this is one of Revell's more popular kits....the 'miss Marilyn' is another.......actually a spin off of this kit.  model companies have a habit of this practice...this one was easy,  merely needing to change the decal sheet ;)   I've been delving into the subject of 'nose art'  for a while now......some of the reasons for naming their aircraft are rather interesting,  and I can agree that Lou gave a pretty good synopsis on Gorbel's mindset when he named his plane.   the P 51 was a deadly adversary in the air,  used widely in air acrobatics,  it was a very nimble plane......he likely viewed her as his harbinger of death,  with the record that he held at the time.


I also apologize to you as well Kevin.......after looking at pictures of the plane,  the anti glare does come to a point at the nose......you are correct sir ;) :imNotWorthy:

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
