Tamiya 1/48 P-51D “Little Freddie”
November 26, 2012 in Aviation
First off, an introduction. I’m currently a senior in high school and I have been modeling for a year and a half. In that time I have ruined a few models but have also pumped out quite a few good ones as well. The pictures I have posted are of my pride an joy, my attempt at the Tamiya 1/48 P-51D. I chose Tuskegee markings because I have a great deal of respect for those men that fought and won two battles: the war and discrimination. This model took me about three and a half weeks to finish but I added a decent amount of detail to the cockpit and a sprained ankle gave me a lot of free time. I added wires, spruced up the seat, added radio wires, and did some stuff to the wheel wells. All comments and criticism welcome. Winning the 1/32 Tamiya P-51D would make my holiday season as I’m as broke as a soon to be college freshman should be. Please feel free to comment!
Thank you, veterans.
