A second Mustang ridden: Thoroughbred in British colors

October 13, 2019 · in Aviation · · 11 ≡

Parallel to "Scooter´s Skeeter" I made a second Mustang out of the same kit. This time with retracted landing gear -and completely out of the box.
Turning props have been simulated by transparent sheet and airbrush, decals are from the box.
Of course there have been some improvements, sand paper and putty have been my faithful companions - finally this thoroughbred can join his colleague.

However, I may say: two Mustangs from this 1:24 herd are enough for a modelers lifespan! 🙂

  1. Can't argue with an RCAF Mustang. Very nice Roland

  2. Stunning presentation, sir...nice work.

  3. Very unusual solution for the spinning prop...nicely done.

  4. Wow, very impressive model. The spinning props illusion is remarkably well done, looks real to me. I will try your method on 1/48 sometime. Congratulations Roland, a great build and a stunning presentation

  5. Very well done. The prop effect looks great.

  6. Excellent looking Pony Roland, great idea for the spinning prop blades. Very realistic.

  7. I Like it ! Well done ...

  8. 🙂 … Greetings … 🙂 :
    Nice overall work on this Mustang , Roland. The colors alone make this a very unique build … but to be honest … I am enjoying the figure, I just love the addition of pilot figures, it gives one a sense of scale and this one has good details … nice work.

  9. Another nice Mustang. Man - with all that yellow, it's almost blinding!

  10. Your comments are a real motivation boost! Thank you very much, you continue to encourage me to try something new - your words mean a lot to me!
