Two shiny "little friends": here is the first one.

September 2, 2019 · in Aviation · · 13 · 3.9K

Recently, I have decided to once again tackle a rather problem-free construction. Having Airfix's 1:24 on my workbench and two 1:32 Mustangs from Revell and Trumpeter, I chose the kit. A few etched parts from Eduard freshened up the not so young kit.

Here you can see the first finished model from this double, the other one, a of the RAF, follows in its own gallery contribution.

  1. Still looks super even for an older Kit!

  2. Well done, again.

  3. Beautifully done!

  4. Beautiful work, Roland! Why Tamiya hasn't released a P-51 B/C in 1/72 scale is a mystery, it would be a licence to print money.

  5. Very nice Pony. The P-51 B is a classic.

  6. Excellent build...nice job.

  7. Gentlemen, your comments mean a lot to me, thanks for this motivation!

  8. Lovely birds, Roland!

  9. Nice work. The Tamiya P-51B is a solid dependable workhorse of a kit.

  10. Thank you Dmitry and Tom!

  11. Very nicely done. Great job.

  12. That's a really beautiful Pony! Love the checkerboard nose surround, and I'm just a fan of the B Mustang.

  13. Ok first thing. You can never have too many Mustangs on your work bench! Very nice work. I like how the NMF came out. Not shiny, but not beat up, it accents the beautiful lines of the P-51 really well. Mustangs are my favorite by a mile but I have never built this kit even though I have two in the stash. I really need to fix that! Thanks for sharing.
