The Tamed Horse: Captured Mustang P-51D, Italeri 1:72
This is the Tamed Horse, second entry in my “Caged Birds” collection about captured planes. This scheme came from Pinterest
The kit is a Italeri F-51D Mustang with Reheat Models P51D/K PE and Vallejo and Mig paints, plus some Humbrol clear cote. The build was quite fast but, as always Italeri does, the fit is not good and at the canopy section is just poor. I used a lot of putty in the fuselage. Nevertheless, has very good details even when the grooves could be deeper for better pin washing. The cockpit was amazing but I made the mistake of spraying mate cote AFTER installing the canopy, so little can be seen inside… little lessons that every build teach me.
I hope you liked it. Next, the Ronin.
