Some More American Fighters From World War Two:

Here is a P-47D in Full D-Day Invasion Stripes. Here, again, small renderings of unit markings appear in the white space near many of the planes in this collection.

Another full set of Invasion Stripes have been painted onto the twin engine fighter shown in this two-view study of the Lockheed P-38 Lightning “Swat,” flown by Lt. Robert Milliken, who became a 9th Air Force ace in the ETO, even as most units there were, by then, using the P-51 Mustang, due to its range and better suitablitiy to the climate of northern Europe.

From earlier in the war, the 24″ x 36″ print shown below depicts the Grumman F4F Wildcat flown by Marine Corps Medal of Honor Winner, ace Capt. Joe J. Foss in the embattled skies over Guadalcanal.

With the lessons learned building the rugged little Wildcat, “The Iron Works,” as its manufacturer, Grumman, was known, developed a bigger, tougher fighter. The 24″ x  36″ print shown below depicts a Grumman F6F Hellcat of the “Iron Angels,” staging from the Carrier U.S.S. Wasp. Though all the renderings are available with plain white backgrounds, sometimes a gray or off-white background is added, to help planes with lots of white in their paint jobs show up more starkly against the background.

Time for another colorful Mustang: Lt. Freddie Ohr was an ace in the MTO, and his P-51D, “Marie,” will never have trouble showing up against any background. This rendering looks great in its 24″ x 36″ print.

The two-view rendering below is of Tuskegee Airman Robert William’s famous Red Tail P-51D, “Duchess Arlene.” This is one of seven Tuskegee fighter planes in a collection commisioned for air museum display usage. The Tuskegee Airmen flew more different kinds of fighters than any other unit in World War Two, not only engaging in hazardous ground attack missions, but distinguishing themselves further by never having lost any of the bombers they escorted to attacks by enemy aircraft. Bomber crews grew to appreciate having “The Red Tails” showing up to help cover their bomber streams.
