Default P-51D Alabama Rammer Jammer skin

Guys,is there somebody that recreate 2nd Lt Arthur C.Cundy's P-51D,'Alabama Rammer Jammer',from 352nd FS,353rd FG of period October 1944?

I know 'Archangel' created a superb later version of this skin,but this is an ealier version.

It is quite different,to his later version,for a start it has the black squadron codes on the fuselarge,minus the yellow outline,which was painted/applied only to the later version.The 'B' code has a small dash beneath the letter 'B'on both sides.

It also sports the black vertical stripes on the wings and tail,as well as a horizontal black stripe across the tail.On this version he only has the one kill,there is also a text within a yellowish patch aft of the aircraft name on the port side.

The B/W pictures at the bottom,show Cundy and other members of 353rd FG crowding around this very said aircraft,note the one kill sign under the opened canopy,the last B/W picture shows Cundy and group standing on the starboard side of this aircraft.

I have contacted Archangel but he has not been on here since March so maybe he has gone elsewhere now.I think this is a real beauty of a skin and would love to see it's creation so if there is a skinner out there that could do justice to this aicreaft I would be really grateful,thank you.

Looks like an interesting project. I have only worked on A-10C skins.....is there a layered template file for the P-51?

[edit] Never mind, I found the template on DCS main site.

I really like this one as well. I have been working on a new bare metal template that would be a good base for anyone wanting to make this one. If I get some time I'll see if I can give it my best attempt.

Thanks, hopefully I can do it justice. I see what you mean by the yellow, I just did a quick google search for it. The text I used is from here. I threw it up on my bare metal template and did some work on the nose during my lunch break. Using some other stuff I have done on my other projects the rest should go pretty fast.

Wow........very nice!........are you aware Whiplash that the checkered section at the front is a little wider,and has three sets of checkers along it's width?

That's a very nice bare metal finish base mate.

Might want to look closer at the name, its "Rammer" not "Rammep." I see from the picture it sort of looks like a P but closer inspection reveals some of the paint on the R is scraped/worn off. Might be able to recreate the look by using an R and then erase a portion of it.
