  1. That’s a trully excellent job Tolga! Everything is spot-on. This molded-on detail at the foot pedals is an eye catcher too.
    All the best!

  2. Very nice build Tolga. Cockpit details are extremely realistic.

  3. Quality build. Great subtle weathering.

  4. That’s a real beauty. I love the way you get such visual interest out of monochromatic schemes – you are an artist at it!

  5. Great looking Allison Mustang!

  6. Very nice exhaust stains. Great variation in the color scheme as well.

  7. Great work (as usual) Tolga!

  8. Sweet big-scale Mustang!

  9. Tolga, very nice work. I’ve always been fond of the earlier Mustangs. Was the Hobbycraft kit a lot of work to make accurate, because, what you’ve done looks spot on?

    Cheers,

    • Thanks Scott
      This kit is an upscaled version of the Accurate Miniatures Mustangs. So detail level is not sufficient especially in the cockpit.
      Again exhausts and wheels not so good.
      The spinner is more pointed than the real one as on the Accurate Miniatures kits. So I have replaced it by a home made product.
      And also Wheel wells walls are not accurate. Maybe in my next Allison engine Mustang I will try to fixe it.

  10. Absolutely stunning! Love your work, Tolga.

  11. Excellent work Tolga – kit decals used? Everything looks great – have this kit in the pile and yours has made me keen to start mine now……………..
