Again a Tamiya Mustang but this time C version.
This is 1/48 P-51C Mustang finished with the markings of 43-24959 Gladys from 26th FS 51st FG in Kunming China during 1944 autumn.
The construction started with the painting of cockpit components to US interior green .

The cockpit is modified with some beauties from several companies.
These are :

The additional replacement parts are ;
-Ultracast P-51 B/C exhausts
-Ultracast P-51 Mustang Hamilton Standard Cuffed 4-Blade Propeller & Spinner.
-Ultracast P-51 wheels diamond tread
-Ultracast P-51 corrected flaps
The decals are from old and rare Aeromaster’s sheet number 48-211, “Fighting Mustangs P-51B Part 1.
