1/48 Accurate Miniatures P-51A
Latest off the bench is this old AM P-51A with some after market items. Really decent kit that one can assemble with not a lot of issues. Decent cockpit detail and over all shape is good, the only draw back is a rather thick canopy that runs through their entire series of early P-51's. Items added were a corrected prop, exhaust stacks and a seat. Decals were a combination of the kits along with Super Scale sheet 1089, depicting "Carols Daddy" assigned to the 1st Air Commando Group. Paints were a combination of Model Master acrylics and Tamiya enamels. Antenna wire is nylon thread and I did cut the canopy open to display more of the cockpit. You can find this kits at model show are very reasonable prices.
Great work, as usual, Tom. I really like the finish you get on these builds, feels exactly the right 'Goldilocks' zone between matt and sheen. Also, those decals couldn't have been easy.
Great looking P-51 Tom! I really like the Allison engine 51's.
Looks good, Tom!
Nice work, Tom - 🙂
Nice work here, Tom!
Another great "Pony" from the Bebout stables... 🙂
You guys posting up these Mustangs are doing a fine job... Between you, Marc Barris @marc
with his beautiful "Red Baron" Racer,
and Jim Harley @jimh
with "Betty Jane" and his "D" model ANG plane, you all have been inspiring me to get one on the work bench too. I just happen to have one in mind...
A great looking Mustang!
First model I've seen in Air Commandos livery, I really like it. Well done Tom
Gentleman, thank you all for the kind comments, I appreciate them.
Nice work, Tom. You don't see planes with the red surround insignia modeled often.
Your whole collection of Allison Mustangs looked superb!
I like the nice subtle finish you got on the monochromatic surface - well done!
