A few weeks ago, Falcon409 requested a repaint of Col. Don Blakeslee's 4th FG P-51D 44-13779 "WD-C" for Warbirdsim's "Little Friends I". However, the historically correct version to do the repaint for would be "Little Friends II", being a P-51D-5-NA, but the real reason for Ed's interest in the markings, is that it is the same paint scheme that the Cavanaugh Flight Museum's P-51D wore for many years, including during the time that Ed and his company performed a fair amount of restoration and maintenance work on the aircraft. So, having some fun with it, I have recreated the markings historically accurate, but I have presented the aircraft looking as if a cross between an original and restored example, with the whole idea being to just make a good and interesting looking representation for "Little Friends I".
Still a few more things to do and then it will be uploaded. I will also be doing a completely historically accurate reproduction for "Little Friends II". Don Blakeslee, quite a man - he, being the leader he was, always felt it important to not brandish his aircraft with names, tallies, or other personal decoration.
