Mustang Tuskegee Airmen
Around a year ago I decided to build an Airfix 1/72 P-51 North American Mustang, it would be the third Mustang (all in 1/72 and all Airfix) in my collection but the first one with a lot of new things going on for it. When I returned back to the hobby around 5 years ago, this kit was the first one I did after a 25 year break. Back then (5 years ago) I did it straight out of the box and hand brushed it with Humbrol enamels.
Back to this kit, though; this time around I used AK xtreme Metal for the paint and Humbrol enamels for the drab and the red, I also added a Jeep in 1/72 (from Airfix as well) and the figures where from the USAAF Airfix ground crew in 1/72.
The Marston Matting was from Italeri in 1/72, the italeri matting comes as a whole and so I took the tedious task of hand drilling each hole (1700 + holes).
The Aircraft is that of 1st. Lieutenant Spurgeon Neil Ellington, more info about him can be found in the following link : https://northcarolinaroom.wordpress.com/2014/06/19/lollipoop-ii-a-saga/
I also added a small minute picture of his beloved in the cockpit area.
