Chuck Shanley brings us another great looking aircraft diorama with his depiction of a P-51 conducting a flyover of its victim.

I owe Chuck a public apology for taking so long to get this article published. The pictures have been in the gallery for some time but I just wasn't able to get it finished and eventually forgot about it. Chuck, my apologies.

Chuck gave us a sneak preview of this over on A-UK.

Lovely job Chuck! You can almost feel the CRUNCH!! Keep 'em coming.

All the best

No apology public or otherwise needed, Bryan . It takes time to process these things and we all have lives other than Armorama to take care of. (as hard as that may be to believe sometimes)

Holdfast - I've given it some thought, I'm just not sure it was serious thought.

Great job, great to see a dio showing an actual event that happened in WW2. Love the angle of the Mustang, I can hear that Merlin engine giving off that intimidating growl, nice job ,Wingman out.
