Vraciu has finished a new skin and has asked me to show you all.


P-38J-25-LO "Curly Six" O8L (S/N 44-23569) was the personal aircraft of Captain Jack L. Reed of the 393rd Fighter Squadron, 367th Fighter Group, during the summer of 1944, based at Stoney Cross and later at Ibsley, Hampshire, before the Group moved to France.  Excerpts from his diary during his combat tour spanning April to October 1944 provided an interesting insight into the life of a P-38 pilot in the ETO.

Very colorful scheme and unusual nose art.  These skins you all put out are so universally good they’re almost anti-climactic now. Take that as a compliment. Good job.
