    wow — you wouldn’t miss that flying around in the sky.. I am assuming they weren’t painted like this normally.

    Yeah, believe it or not this is a camoflage paint job. It’s having my Lumix set to Vivid Sunset does this!

    That is a peculiar colour scheme ! Can’t quite see where it would blend in…

    Thanks everyone.

    And thanks for the info Steve. You are far more au fait with what’s going on in the aviation world than I am!

    The Allison V1710 – was that the same engine in P51s before the switch to Rolls Royce Merlins?

    Have updated the info, this is indeed a replica, the absence of guns being a dead giveaway.

    If there are oil fields in Romania why would anyone need to sell a child for a betamax vcr?

    Great colours. Nice shot.
