Yup, That’s it, a rare thing of Beauty. The early models weren’t as good as the later ones. They had, I believe an Allison engine and were underpowered. It really came into it’s own when the Rolls Royce Merlin engine was added and the bubble canopy. The early ones honestly looked a lot like a Spitfire to me. The drop tanks gave it the range to become the premier long range fighter escort for the bombing campaign into the heart of Germany.
My ultimate hot rod!
