Airfix 1/72 Mustang P-51D – Glamourous Glen III
A bit of a trial this one.
My first attempt ended as a blob of plastic after attempting the butterfly stroke in a pool of cellulose thinners.
6 months later I came round to the second attempt.
I used the Barracudacals Decal set for this and they were wonderful.
They went down beautifully and settled in with the slightest of encouragement.

So, here it is with the famous Airfix wonky leg, which has now been straightened and a toothpick aerial as the kit one disintegrated during clean-up.
Thanks for looking,
