BUGSY'S P-51 SKINS

Recommended Posts

Bugsy,

     Wonderful skin as usual, thank you very much and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  It’s time for you to spend time with family and leave the skinning to the new year.  By the way ... any idea why the “Red Millie G” skin would be so shiny and metallic?

Bugsy,

    Thanks for looking into Red “Millie G”, I knew something was amiss, but for the life of me I didn’t know what.  Have a wonderful Holiday and will talk to you in the new year.  I’m on the road right now, heading to Canada to visit children and grandchildren.

Here's just a glimpse of the 1st skin in a skin pack I'm doing for the 352nd FG.... “Sweetie Face” P-51D was flown by Lt. Heyer of the 487th Fighter Squadron, 352nd Fighter Group based at Bodney, England.

Here's the 2nd skin in the pack and she's a one of a kind. All the lettering is custom made. There are no other known photos of her but she was flown by Lt. Col. John C. Edwards. He started in the 487th FS and the plane was listed as HO-E with serial number 44-13406. He switched to the 328th FS and while the name and serial number stayed the same, the id became PE-E. The tail color also switched from blue to red.

OK Gents,

 

Here's the "Blue Nose Bastards of Bodney" skin pack as promised there are 11 skins from the 352nd FG that you can now use for your squadron or campaign missions, 2 of them have 2 different versions. I did this as a request from a few pilots here in the forums. I hope you enjoy them and have fun making your sorties. I had a blast learning their history and making these skins. I have a few more of the 352nd FG here in my thread in the 1st couple of pages so grab them as well if you haven't already. Happy New Year fella's!

Nice work!

With holidays and crap, and having to be hyper-focused on some other things I've been remiss in getting you that artwork for Whisner's ship.

I'll package that up for you soon.

Bugsy, they only made slightly over 8000 Ds and Ks. If you don't slow down, you'll run out long before the Bs and Cs get here.

Hey Fellas

Here's one from the 4th FG, 336th FS, no name on it but I like the Donald Duck character..Flown by Capt. Donald R Emerson he had

 

An Air Medal with 9 oak leaf clusters (1 silver, 4 bronze)

American Campaign Medal

Distinguished Flying Cross with 2 oak leaf clusters

Good Conduct Medal

Purple Heart

World War II Victory Medal

European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal with 1 silver star and 1 bronze star

 

Born 17 May 1923, Donald was raised on a farm in Minnesota during the Great Depression. He graduated from high school in 1941, not having excelled to any degree academically. He did not feel destined to be a farmer, so he soon moved to Chicago to find work. Jobs were scarce, but a friend got him a position at Montgomery Ward and took him in as a boarder. At Christmas, although he was not previously interested in flying, he took his first airplane ride.
With the advent of the Pearl Harbor attack he felt that he or his brother would be drafted. Donald, not interested in running the farm, decided to enlist so his older brother would be deferred to attend that duty.
He chose the Army and was sworn in during July 1942. He was assigned to the Air Corps and shipped to Lowery Field, Colorado, to become an armourer. Although his academic background was weak, he applied for, and was accepted as an Aviation Cadet. In October 1942 he was sent to Nashville, Tennessee, for Primary Training, graduating as a Second Lieutenant on 1 October 1943.
After further training in fighters in Florida he headed to New York, to embark on the 'Isle de France' bound for England. There he became attached to the 4th Fighter Group. He flew Mustangs and his embellished with a fighting-mad "Donald Duck" image.
Donald was big-hearted and wore a perpetual smile. He was soon endeared by his comrades as a friend and a leader. During 89 combat missions escorting bombers, strafing, etc., he destroyed seven enemy aircraft and wrought destruction on many trains, trucks, and other surface targets, becoming an "Ace" and a Captain in the Russian Shuttle mission. When his first tour ended he volunteered for a second.
On 24 December 1944 the group flew an uneventful escort mission to Giessen. Upon returning to England they discovered Debden was closed for operations due to thick fog, so the group landed at Raydon. The pilots were extremely disappointed at not being able to return to their base for the annual Christmas celebration, where 250 British Blitz orphans were treated to a grand party. Debden base rallied to the occasion and sent a truck loaded with turkeys, cigarettes, whiskey, money, and blankets to the pilots at Raydon to help restore their Christmas spirit.
Unfortunately, the business the following day called for an escort mission, this one to the Bonn/Trier area. Thirty-plus Me-109s and Fw-190s tried to attack the bombers out of the sun but immediately engaged by the 4th group escort. Twelve enemy aircraft were destroyed, but one of the Group's pilots joined the ranks of the 'Missing In Action' list.
Donald became detached from the group and was seen to engage six Me-109s single-handed, downing two of them; and then, out of ammunition, he headed for home on the deck. He failed to return to base and was later found dead in the wreckage of his plane in Belgium, the victim of ground fire. He was buried in his flying clothes the following day at the age of 21.
