Franz Stiegler was one of several Luftwaffe pilots that refused to shoot airmen in chutes. I forget the details but it had to do with the death of his brother.

Beautiful early Mustang, great build and paint.Beer

Excellent work on a great kit.  Pretty much renders all other 1/48 P-51 kits obsolete.  Interesting on the issues you had as I didn't experience them with this kit. Peterson was an awesome pilot. I always found that story about him shooting a German pilot in a parachute intriging. Minutes earlier the same pilot was shooting B-17 crew members in their shoots.  Peterson getting payback. There's a great interview with Peterson on the topic out there if your interested.            

 

Thanks Lawdog. I'm sure the issues were self-induced. Peterson's video is what convinced me to do his plane out of the 9 other decal options. Thx.
