Tamiya 1/72 P-51D

Not a lot of major stuff to do, but added seat straps, drop tank plumbing and fin antenna for tail-warning radar. Also made Spitfire-type rear view mirrors for windscreen. Installed wheel doors assymetrically drooped per photos

Painted red, blue and lacquered wing areas and masked them off before spraying fuselage with Testors Metallizer over Tamiya White Primer undercoat.

Decals for 4th Fighter Group commander Everett Stewart came from IPMS/USA 2002 convention decal sheet.
