Tamiya 1/48 scale P-51D Mustang with Custom Markings for a Christmas Present
December 2, 2012 in Aviation
This idea hatched in August, 2011 when my sister expressed her love for the Mustang!! “It’s shiny and sounds so cool”!! Little light bulb in my head went “Ping!” and this was the result. It is my first time playing with Alclad and making my own decals. The civil reg number under the tail is her birthday, and the aircraft number is Christmas Day, 2011. The codes are her initials, and the shield and nickname are from her SCA persona. Her name is on the left canopy rail, and mine is on the right, as the crew chief. Oh, and her name is Joanne, but we all call her ‘Jo’. The colours are her favorites, yellow and purple. They actually look really good on this plane.
