Hi Tim,
I think the markings are unusul and probably innaccurate.
However, the 112th British Squadron did have olive drab paint with the sharks mouth on their P-51B 's.
Also, the American 23rd Fighter Group had the Tiger Shark mouth on their olive drab P-51D's.
The markings on your plane look like the builder was just going for Close'nuff scale.
He probably used whatever decals he had on hand, that looked good to him.

Still, with a little work, you have a great sport scale P-51D.

As for the plane itself, it is a Sig Kwik-Bilt from the early 1980's.
I have built 2 of them. They fly very well!
