Here's a look at Valiant Wing's comprehensive study of the early-model Mustangs up to and including the P-51B/C (Mustang Mk. III).

Thanks, I've got a couple of early 'Stangs in the stash. I'll have to track this one down. Any hints on US distributors?

I have more then a casual interest in the early Mustangs being mostly a WW11 modeler, with American types being #1 on my priority list. With so much of today's reference material centered around the more famous P-51D, this volume concentrates on versions so often just given a passing glance. Definitely worth purchasing.

Looks like a valuable book - anyone notice the Allison Mustang with the Malcolm Hood? I, too, would like information about the interior colors.

The 1945 edition of Janes All the Worlds Aircraft has a photo of an F6A with a Malcolm Hood and Invasion Stripes. It's obviously OD over grey. I keep telling myself that I need to do it.
