1/48 Accurate Miniatures P-51A Mustang
October 29, 2016 in Aviation
Here are a few photos of my rendition of an early AAF Mustang. I included a color WW2 photo of the original plane that was my inspiration for the project.
I liked the two tone camouflage. Most of the early Mustangs were finished in Olive Drab and Neutral Gray. My understanding is that these two tone early Mustangs were finished with the US equivalents of RAF colors. Some of these early Mustangs were retained by the Army Air Force.
I used Model Master Field Drab FS 30118, Olive Drab ANA 613, and RAF Sky Type S ( ANA 610 ) for paint.
I’m not 100 percent sure I have the undersurface in the proper color.
It is built out of the box and is finished using Model Master enamels.
The decals are from my spares collection.
I added a section of stretched clear sprue as the antenna wire.
I’m pleased overall with the kit. I built it several years ago and I don’t have any recollections of any building problems.
This is a nicely detailed kit.
