Verne, that’s fantastic. I love the P-51D. Arguably the finest fighter in WWII!

Your intarsia project turned out awesome! I like the detail of the d-day stripes on the bottom of the fuselage.

Thanks for sharing.

Hey Verne,

Another work by a great craftsman/artisan! Nice combination of woods and interesting subject matter.

rtbrumb I looked up the P51D Mustang and read all about it. You are right it was perhaps the best U. S. Fighter in WWll.

Nice job Verne, great use of the blue pine for the plane itself, it’s a perfect color and your use of its grain directions is beautiful.

Absolutely breath taking, I’ve been an aviation buff since I was a kid, the P51 is my favorite aircraft of all time, well done!

The American’s did not like fighting the ME 109 and the P51 and to me the P38 were the best the Americans made.
Back in the day the ME 109 was the bad boy on the block. Well done!!

Incredibly realistic presentation of plane’s flight. Wood colours are amaizing – like it was painted instead real colours of woods. The rotating propeller is amaizing!
