  1. Paulo – this is just a beautiful effort at 1/72 scale! Love the way you’ve dirtied up the NMF, and overall finish is just superb. Simply excellent work!

    • Thanks Greg
      This kit was fun to build and these new Airfix are just almost as good as the Tamiya (but way cheaper). If only they had better scaled panel lines it would be perfect.

  2. Nicely done and presented, sir….I like it. And as Greg mentioned, even more impressive at that scale.

  3. Hey – looked at your WIP link – some great tips – especially using teflon plumbers tape for masking BMF! Nice – thanks!

  4. Very nice, Paulo. Great looking finishes.

  5. Paulo – awesome work in 1/72! Love it!

  6. Nice work. That little Airfix Mustang is a real jewel. One thing – when Landers had this airplane, it didn’t have the checkerboard wingtips, that was his postwar replacement did that. Not a complaint, lots of Very Serious People Indeed have managed not to notice that for a long time, I discovered when I wrote my 78th FG book.

  7. Great to see the new Airfix kits being finished and displayed so well.
