    what country are you in? any more stamps or numbers on the parts? looks great that piece, I see traces of red paint underneath, where did you obtain this relic? not the best of ideas mounting that on your shed, relics that size sell for quite a bit on ebay, dont be surprised if a theif doesnt take it from you

    You may be interested to know that there was a B24 Liberator which carried the name 'Zoomin Zombie.'

    When you say North England, do you mean near Warrington, or further north? I only ask because of the former US airbase of Burtonwood being on my doorstep. There was much wreckage to be found around here 30 or more years ago.

    Cheers,
    Steve.

    Well the person who painted yours used the exact same paint, lettering, colors as the Mustang. They are essentially the same except that yours are stacked. Could yours have been on another fighter (P47?) Whose pilot the transitioned to the Mustang and took the name with him?
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    The casting with the serial shown 28 is usually PBY and in some cases on B24s, but the G is new to me so it maybe incorrect.
    You will need access to a parts manual to confirm or deny.
    Good Luck
