SCRATCH BUILT No.4.
I blew up the first photo of a P-51D Mustang that was taken in WW-II (1941-1945). With my art talent I drew the "duck" which was fashioned after Walt Disney's movie cartoon character then had a decal made, which was put on my 2nd kit called "test model."
For the wheel well parts I was given permission to set under a restored P-51D at our local airport in San Jose, CA/USA. I spent several hours making a drawing and taking photos. My finished "wells" are about 97% accurate to the real airplane.
In the end, it took a few award's at model shows.
