You know how P51's always have a name on the front end, like Betsy, or Miss Demeanour or something like that? Well, can we have a forum naming competition for this one?

I'd use a bit of artistic license, and name it "Big Beautiful Barnes", and see if anyone notices....

What about "Bits R Us" Razz Oh that's me lol
I named mine "Grim Reaper" after a real WWII plane but it literally went down in flames! so I'd go for a nice safe name, "Bottoms up" could result in some good (read interesting) graphic ideas!
