Teeth&Fangs GB: North American A-36 Mustang – Italeri 1/48
I think it's time to put this one into the case and call it complete.
This kit is the Italeri re-pop of the old AM A-36 that many a folks are familiar with. In the usual style there were a number of decals to choose from, however, this being built for the Teeth&Fangs GB, I didn't have too much trouble deliberating..
"The wrong side of right"
The build log is over in the GB group, so I wont bore you with the details. The only addition to the build since the last post in the build log is that I painted the bombs (which robbed from my Academy F8F, due to loosing one of the AM fins), and installed them with micro-magnets, as a test of fitting removable armaments. Additionally of course, there are some finishing detail touches. It's not perfect, and there are some things that still bug me, but I convinced myself to overlook them, and I hope you can too!
Without further ado, my entry, my USAAC A-36 Mustang, flown by Lt Bert Benear, 526th FS, 86th FB, Corsica 1944. I hope you like it!
