The P-51B looks the more stream-lined of the three, to me ... lower cockpit, and all that.  I like the stretch of the last one, though.  :)

Thanks.
And to celebrate further seavixen's inventive Mustang, I have created Sea-Vixen/Mustang mixes, see http://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php/topic,4461.msg816303.html#msg816303

All the coolest Superstangs lose their radiator and this no exception, I like it a lot! Some great mods and it's so refreshing to see so many sponsor decals.

I also like how you oriented the race numbers under the wings so this guy can go to Reno or a right-handed course without confusing anyone!
I find it very hard to believe Academy would make a mistake like that he said sarcastically...

I just wanted to say thanks for your kind comments about my mustang build. I'm sorry for reviving an old thread but I've been quite unwell since the Summer and so unable to post.
