This file contains three texture sets for the Warbirdsim P-51D-5-NA Mustang, depicting aircraft from the 20th FG in late October/November 1944. They are 44-13687 'Dizzy Rebel' flown by Lt. Robert H. King of the 77th FS, 44-13753 'Kitty and Bunny', flown by Capt. Charles Hamme of the 79th FS, and 44-13***, 'Cathy Beloved, flown by Lt Thomas J. Doody of the 55th FS. This latter has been assigned the serial 44-13794 for the purposes of the identification panel and the cockpit placards, on the basis that an aircraft with that serial carried the squadron code KI-C flown by Lt Walter H. Skroback and named 'Piccolo Pete'. By Dave Quincey.

'Diizy Rebel' survived the war but was lost in a crash landing in August 1945; 'Piccolo Pete' was probably scrapped after a forced landing at the 357th FG base of Leiston in January 1945. The fate of 'Kitty and Bunny' is unknown though she did have two other 'owners'.

Unzip the 20th_FG file to a temporary location. Copy and paste the three textures into your SimObjectsAirplanesP-51D-5-NA_Little_Friends_Fillet folder. (Note that these folders also contain a P-51D_2_T_Bump file lacking the carburetor heater vents on each side of the nose, a feature of all three of these aircraft).

Open the aircraft.cfg folder and paste the following after the last [fltsim.xx] entry:-

These texture sets were created using the excellent paint kit supplied by Warbirdsim's John Terrell who also kindly supplied the P-51D_2_T-Bump file. The artwork for 'Cathy Beloved' comes from Mark Styling's excellent Aircraft Illustration website and is reproduced here with kind permission. I must also give credit to Paul Randall's invaluable resource on the 8th AF fighter groups. Many thanks also to John Terrell and Jan Kees Blom for their invaluable help and guidance with the research for these repaints.

These repaints are freeware; they can be used and modified as you wish for your own use. They must not be used or sold for commercial gain. If you want to publish any repaints based upon them they must be published as freeware and must acknowledge the authors Dave Quincey, Mark Styling (as appropriate), Warbirdsim and John Terrell.

These files are virus-free and have been tested with FSX SP2/Acceleration. I have no reason to suspect they will harm your system but they are used entirely at your own risk.
