RAF Mustang III – Revell 1/72
Here is kit #2 from my modeling renaissance. The kit has pretty good detail for 1/72, but some flash and fit issues. Added a Squadron vacu-form canopy, two tiny photo etch levers you can’t even see in these pictures, a guitar string (.010) for a whip antenna. Wasn’t happy with kit prop as tiny tabs for blades broke off and had to be glued butt-ended, then had painting issues, so I sent away for a Quick Boost prop. Now I know why people pay for nose jobs. 100% improvement. The prop is the face of your single engined fighter.
Paints mostly Tamiya.
Kit decals depict an aircraft of No. 316 Squadron, RAF Friston, UK, August 1944.
