1/48 Tamiya P-51B

April 14, 2014 in Aviation

This is my Tamiya P-51B flown by Henry Brown of Dallas, TX. Upper camouflage is Tamiya RAF dark green and the inderside is Alclad aluminum for the metel parts and semi-gloss silver for the painted wings. The figure is from Ultracast. Pictures were taken with my iphone and I can’t get very clear on the close-in ones.

  1. Maybe its just me, but I think Mustangs look a lot meaner with an O.D. finish as opposed to a NMF. This build has it all, green with invasion stripes, nicely done.

  2. Terrific Mustang John. Definitely has the look.

  3. You should try to recreate that b&w shot with your model outside with the wind swinging the prop! Excellent painting on the pilot!

  4. Nice Mustang there John, I like it.
    Well done sir.

  5. This is a difficult scheme, a project on which more than a few I’ve known have foundered. You’ve done it perfectly. Well done!

  6. Very nice work John, I like how the wash accented panel lines. Cheers!

  7. Ditto! 🙂 Really nice job.

  8. Very nice looking model, John, that colour scheme really suits the Mustang, and you’ve done a really good job on it, neatly displayed, but, hey, what’s wrong with using a proper camera?

    • Thank you, George. Nothing wrong with a proper camera, I just don’t have one. If I did, I would have to lean to use it…and as you can see from my iphone taken pictures, I have a lot to learn.

  9. John,
    This Is gorgeous. You did an outstanding job on this. I really like the “B” and you have captured it’s beauty. I really like this.

  10. Nice clean build, great paint application.

  11. man…that is beautiful and what a great scheme…how did i miss this
