North-American P-51-D Mustang Airfix 1/72
It has been a while, but just finished my 1/72 P-51-D Mustang from Airfix. This is the kit with their new tooling and it’s a very nice kit to work on. Tolerances are tight and I managed to build it without a single blob of filler. With exeption of tape-seatbelts build OOB.
After a base coat with Tamiya semi-gloss black I painted the whole aircraft with Vallejo Metal Color Aluminium. The blue nose is done with Vallejo Model Color dark blue and the tail is done with Tamiya flat red. All covered with Tamiya clear gloss before applying all decals including some very tiny stencelling.
Some panel lines done with Vallejo black wash and everything sealed with Tamiya flat clear.
This Mustang flown by Lt. Eugene James, 352nd FG, 328th FS, RAF Bodney Norfolk England 1944.
I hope you like it, I will certainly build some more Mustangs now.
