Airfix P-51D 1/48
First completion of 2019. Actually its been in process for awhile. The Airfix kit is well done with no flaws to mention. Airfix’s color coded assembly instructions came in handy in a few steps though. I added an Eduard P-51D interior PE set, which really enhanced the cockpit, and 1/48 Aeromaster P-51 B D Checkertail Clan Part 2 decals. The metal finish is AK Extreme Metal. The other colors are a mix of Mission Models, Real Colors, Testors, and Tamiya. This was my first bare metal AC project in a long while. I started with Alclad metals but didn’t like the results. I then switched to Extreme Metal which went on like a dream. Will be doing more metal planes in the future.
