1/48 Tamiya P-51D ‘Dirty Dick’

I just finished this one on Saturday night.

It’s the 1/48 Tamiya P-51D Mustang with Lifelike Decals, Eduard fabric seat belt and Barracuda oval tread wheels. Built as 44-151103 flown by Col. Dick Rowland, CO 348 FG Luzon, Phillipines, early 1945.

Paints are Tamiya and Gunze with details by Vallejo.

Hope you like it and comments and suggestions welcome. Just noticed something is missing too, I’ll have to fix that.
