The painting was done with Alclad II Aluminium Lacquers .

    Wow! Superb rendition of the P-51 Tolga. I love the paint job, and all the extras you added. VERY nice Mustang.

  2. Very attractively colorful but realistic at the same time. A real eye-candy. I like it a lot. /M.

  3. Add my accolades as well...a really nice build. I have it 32nd scale and it isn't as nice as yours. Well done.

  4. Tolga... Now that's how you build a Mustang! Just beautifully done.

    Tolga .. as our Editor said .. REALISTIC .. now I have one question .. when were you at the factory to take these pictures after it came off the line ? It is really breath-taking to see such QUALITY "work" such as THIS .. keep up the good "work/fun/enjoyment" !
