Tamiya 1/48 North American P-51D Mustang : “Blondie”
June 18, 2013 in Aviation
North American P-51 D Mustang. “Blondie”, as flown by Lt Marvin Arthur,334th Fighter Squadron, 4th Fighter Group.
One of Tamiya’s finer kits, I think.
OOB with Eduard seat harness.
Finished with Testor’s buffable Metallizer “Aluminum Plate”.
Testor’s Acryl “Guards Red” on the nose.
Testor’s enamel wash (Black) on the bottom. It was pretty hot, even for the Future clear coat.
Topside panel lines drawn in with a black Micron 0.05 pen.
The kit decals had a hard time adhering to the model.
I suspect its because the buffable metallizer didn’t provide a firm base for the Future to adhere to.
A couple tried to peel up, in places. Otherwise, they performed well.
