USAAF insignea sizes?
Posted by Theuns on Saturday, February 8, 2020 11:22 PM

I am developing a RC kit of a 1/5 P-51d and will have to paint soon, can somene point me in the right direction where I can go to find the standard sizes of the star/bar and size codes used? 

 

I want to have masks made up and sray it on.

Here is the "dryfit" lol

I've not come across anything about fuselage or serial numbers, but if you have a decent photo you could scale those to the known size of the national insignia.

Did you make a fiberglass mold for that, Theunis?  It looks pretty good!
