    Hi, this is my first time on this site and I'll start wth a question: Did the
    P-51D, 375th FS/361st FG {ES 2] ever come in a blue camo scheme?
    A pubication I have, "Aircraft of WW 11" shows that particular plane in bue camo. Does anyone know if the artist, Don Stephens, got it right?

    As I said there were no fully blue P-51s. There were ones with blue paint as in the ones in Erichs signature.

    that is why they were called the Blue Nose Bastards of Bodney, the only Stangs with a Blue nose like that

    other than that with the warbird painted in the yellowjacket nose coloration and blue wings and tail that is all a myth, some would like to think otherwise
