"Belligerent Bets", 325th Fighter Group, 319th Fighter Squadron, flown by Lt Col E.H. Beverly.

 

I have always liked the 325th "Checkertail Clan" schemes, but have been summoning up the courage to attempt the full checkerboard tail.

 

I am reasonably satisfied with the result but will be trying to modify its layout as it does not meet correctly under the fuselage, but it still looks neat enough to use at the moment.

 

My thanks to MysticPuma for his help in researching this aircraft, supplying a couple of cracking photos which cleared some detail points up very nicely.:good:

 

Every illustration and painting of this aircraft always depicts it with a black pinstripe bordering the yellow nose band.
We have confirmed this as being incorrect and it was in fact red, as depicted here.

 

The research by MysticPuma also confirmed the aircraft carried a tricoloured band at the border of the tail colours, again something
I have never seen depicted anywhere.

 

There will be more 325th to follow. (I put too much time into that tail to do just one)
