Hey thanks Peter! Didn't expect to see that particular adjective applied to me and my build after it being used so extensively on Mike's build, but I appreciate it.

Wily, that would be quite an honor having Bud himself look at my build. Thank you.

While I have your attention, you would probably know the history of Bud and this plane better than anyone else on this forum. I was curious whether Bud flew only the P-51B that you're drawing, or if he ever had other Mustangs painted in the Old Crow colors? I know the model I built is based on a currently-flying privately-owned P-51D that is painted to match Bud's P-51B but didn't know if Bud actually flew a D in the war. Do you know if he ever flew in this particular plane recently too? I think it's owned by Anders Saether.

cmags -

Bud flew at least two different B models and 2 D/K models.

Have you ever been to his website?

Bud Anderson's P-51 Mustang "Old Crow" Web Page

Also, I suggest you check out his book, "To Fly and Fight." It's a worthy read - you'll probably read it twice.

Right now, I'm doing an "Old Crow" that's the second P-51B bearing the name. He requested that I render the version prior to the D-Day invasion.

Your cardmodel is quite good - you already know that - and I'm sure he'll get a kick out of it.

Mr. Anderson is a nice fellow. Met him last year at Wings Over Houston.

Thanks Wily, I did see Bud's site earlier on in my research for pictures of the Scandinavian Historic Flight Old Crow, but this time around I found the forum. I see now the following information:

Bud flew a P-51B-7 and a P-51B-15 both with the Olive Drab scheme, then later a P-51D first in the OD scheme which was cleaned off down to the bare metal scheme when it was decided that US fighters would take a more active roll in enticing German fighters into a fight.

Couldn't find anything on the P-51H you mentioned.

Either way, I'm glad to see that the SHF Old Crow is a fairly accurate representation of one of Bud's planes - the P-51D while it was still in the OD colors. Obviously there are a few changes like cockpit, antenna, and armament.
