    Hi there,
    I've come across some conflicting research on this aircraft, which was Oscar Perdomo's ace-in-a-day mount (365thFS, 507thFG) in '45. There are a few profiles around (Osprey etc..) and a few images on the 'net. Just wondering if someone has some obscure publication out there. Areas I'm a tad unsure on include:
    -colour of glareshield: usually depicted black, but I suspect should be olive drab
    -blue stripes on the tailplane

    Any advice greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Hard to say for sure. I found a link about the story with a profile, but that's about it:
