Oh NO, not another suggested airplane!!

There was a thread earlier about repaints, mods, etc. How 'bout a P-51B, "Ding Hao" would have my vote.

Yes a P-51B would be awesome in any paint scheme! :D

A P-51B would be really cool since we have nothing but D versions swamping the market right now. I would like to see a B model featuring the markings of Don Gentiles Shangri La.

I am all behind a Gentile version. He is the hometown hero.

Plus the 21C P-47 has the two versions, so the P-51 needs a B version. And while were at it, FW 190 A needs to be done as well, oh and... (insert requested plane here)

Well, we have the P-47s, the ME-109s, and the F-104s all with different aircraft models; and the same could be said for the 32x Zeros & Macchis as well. So a P-51B could be a possibility, as could an FW-190A. Both of these aircraft would have to use new tooling over the previous releases (which could be a hinderance to production)... However, as the other 21c aircraft listed above evidence, they are not out of the realm of possibility.

HMMM, ok. Whatever we ask for will involve major reengineering. So how 'bout Seafire FR47, or TA-152H?
