An OD Mustang – 1/48 Rovin’ Rhoda
A Sunday arvo session done and a model is complete. This is the 1/48th Airfix P-51D Mustang. I wanted a non-silver finished Mustang so I grabbed the OD/NG Rovin’ Rhoda/4 Bolts scheme from my Eduard Mustang. There’s lots of variation in the colour achieved using lots of thin, layered greens and greys and everything in between. The exhausts, props and spinner are courtesy of Eduard. I need to source some long rang tanks as the kit ones are pretty c**p. I’m really happy to have this one finished, dare I say my favourite for the year?! Almost forgot, I painted the nose checkers ans spinner to match ..never again!
I had a lot of fun with this one.
Some info, the aircraft was flown by Lt. Irvine Snedecker during April 1945. The aircraft was with the 364th FS, 357th FG, 8th AF at Leiston.
