Tamiya P-51K/Mustang IV

December 1, 2017 · in Aviation · · 12 ≡

P-51D turned into a P-51K using the Aeroproducts prop blades for the Eduard P-39Q (4-blad) prop and Red Roo decals with Falcon "Dallas" canopy. 3 Squadron RAAF in Italy, Spring 1945. Most RAF Mustang IVs came from the P-51K production, but some were fitted with Hamilton-Standard P-51D props, so check the photo of the airplane you've chosen to do.

  1. Atsa nice Mustang Tom!

  2. Tom, your builds always look flawless. I hope that some day I can paint a camouflage pattern as well as you can. Fantastic work, as per your usual.

    • That's only because you're seeing them in photos. πŸ™‚

      Someone whose home address is "Le Chateau du Chat" has "flawless" models? HAH! And HAHA! Sometimes though...

  3. Tom, nice to see a -K in Australian markings. Unless you have a hermetically sealed display case, le cirque du chat will leave le fur on your maqettes. Craig can confirm this, as well.

  4. Always good to see a Mustang in different schemes from the usual ones. Nice model!

  5. Nice job, TC...I like it.

  6. Good to see more Aussie Mustangs!

  7. I love Mustangs with RAF cammo! Nice build Tom.
