    Would you be able to make one for @Karl Spackler (Trev)?  No idea what his personal emblem is, but he's 415 in Schmenkel.
    Actually, he's a huge Van Halen fan, so maybe something based on the Frankenstrat?

    So recently I remember my grandfather’s best friend and next door neighbor flew P38s and P39s in the war. His name was Joseph B. Maley. He was a part of the 32nd Air Operations “the spitting wolfhounds.” So I started diving deep into Internet searching and to my surprise, I found an AWESOME picture of him posing on his P38 “Shanty Irish”. Was wondering if anyone could help me out with finding markings or paint colors? Seeing I only have one black and white photo, I feel like there’ll be a lot of guessing. But would love to recreate it and fly it in his honor. I feel bad that I was too young at the time to really appreciate talking to him and can only wish to be able to pick his brain about his time in aviation.

    Here is a better photograph:

    I can't find a lot on the 32nd Fighter Squadron, 36th Fighter Group. I don't have a ton of books on Allied fighter squadrons.  I did find this, however:
    http://www.historyofwar.org/air/units/USAAF/36th_Fighter_Group.html
    We also know that the 32nd Fighter Squadron transitioned to the P-38 in 1945, but VE day cut their operational use short.

    Based on the picture you have above, it looks like the nacelles are olive drab.  The nose tip is probably yellow.  And the aircraft would not have invasion stripes on it, as it's early 1945.
    Honestly, it's probably similar looking to this P-38L:


    Unfortunately, it's just not possible to get specifics without a more complete photograph.
    For example, I have no idea what the unit markings were like, either on the boom tails or on the vertical stabilizers.
    Hopefully that helps!

    My dad was a tank gunner and his tank was also "Shanty Irish"!
    I found a P51 that was also Shanty Irish but didn't have any luck with Mr. Maley.

    Sounds great! You wanna pick a squadron to base it off of? Then we could have another group of planes matching. I know I kind of grandfathered myself with picking the squadron for the P47s

    The General and I have been using the 56th fg as our base paint schemes (AKA: Zemke's Wolfpack 61st,62nd,63rd) for our Sunday American Muscle. Pretty fun if anyone wants to join... Or if you're Vonrd and would like to see a nice paint scheme before he blows it out of the sky!!!
