    Hi Terry,

    I wanted to mention that the color photo on thier main page that I was referring to is indeed an A-36. Note that I didn't say A-36A.

    The A-36 was the designation of the Mustang Mk.IA that the USAAF repossesed from the RAF. The A-36A didn't have the Hispano 20 m/m cannon, but 6 fifties, (2 in each wing and 2 in the lower cowling, firing through the propellor) and dive brakes.

    The P-51A had a smaller cowl intake for the carb and 4 fifties (two in each wing) :)
