F-51D Mustang, Korean War – Tamiya 1/72

March 28, 2014 in Aviation

Hi all

Here I am again. This time with a model I did last year.
This Tamiya Mustang is a beauty to build, very straightforward almost no filler required as we can expect from a Tamiya kit.

The aluminium paint is the H8 Chrome Silver from Gunze thinned with Tamiya X20A.

The kit was built straight from the box as usual.

Any comments and critics are welcome, as ever!

  1. Sweet little build….nice job.

  2. I hate to use that word again, Paulo, but it really is a very nice little Mustang!

  3. By that stage of the Mustang’s career, it was painted overall aluminum lacquer, which weathered badly in Korea. You have managed to get that look just right. Nice work.

  4. Like it Paulo. I have this kit too only its the more recent Airfix issue . I love the Korean war Mustangs.

  5. Nice One Paulo, it looks Rippa Mate


  6. Paulo, Very nicely done- I too, really like the Korean War finish on your ‘Stang.

  7. Paulo,
    I occur with all of the above. An excellent job.
