    Hi,

    I am building a scale model P51D Mustang from the 76SQ that went to the Korean War but cannot find a colour picture of a pilot that I can use to paint the pilot in the right colours. I could change and go USAF but as I'm an Australian I would like to paint the plane and pilot in the Australian colours. I have the plane I can use but just cannot find a colour picture of a RAAF pilot.

    Can any one help please.

    Regards
    John

    Hello Mikewint,

    Thanks for the pictures really helpful!!! Sorry for a later reply havent been to well, but getting there.
    The last picture would the right one for me, but I suppose you wouldn't have any more like the last photo a guy standing on a Mustang. It looks like that dress was used just before the RAAF changed to JETS showing the zippers on his dress. It like a overalls they was dressed in. Anyway if you could see any other photos like that one as the other 2 are Navy.
    Many thanks for you help

    Hi,
    Thanks for that picture. I contacted the AWM in the ACT and they couldn't help me. I do know they were re doning some of the part their so maybe it is now gone. Anyway I'll just have to go down my self and check.

    Thanks again guy's for you help.
