Is it just me or is there something not right with the P51 in the AVI's. Its seems that the tail is missing the raised fin/edge that was added when the fastback (B,C) went to the bubble (D) mod.

?????

Very early P-51's didn't have the fin fillet (small raised fin at the front of the vertical stabiliser) This was put in to compensate for the reduced fuselage area when they cut down the rear.

(Can we post pictures on this board?)
