This is the P-51D dressed up in Captain Ted Lines "Thunderbird" livery. Out of the box build except for the Eduards seatbelts. NMF is AK Extreme metallics and Vallejo metallics over a white primer base. Lightly weathered with pastels and an oil wash. I was very impressed with the fit/finish of the kit so much I bought 4 more. Hope you enjoy!

  11. Welcome, Butch! Nice to see a Hasegawa Mustang built.

  12. Great-looking 'Stang Butch! Bought 4 more? Could it be you are being lured away from Sci-Fi...? Not sure the Trek fans could handle that!

  13. Looks great. Have a couple P 51s in the stash. Maybe next build. Hope they turn out as nice aa yours.

  16. Looks great- thanks for sharing! Beautiful Mustang

  17. What a debut! ๐Ÿ˜ Great Mustang model Butch! I did a double-take when I saw your name; I've got a cousin in South Texas named Butch Bryan and the thumbnail pic does look similar. But he's no modeler, and obviously, you are! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Fine work there @butchbryan, and welcome to iModeler! ๐Ÿป

  18. Thanks Gary, much appreciated! Thats a unique name combo I have never seen a duplicate of! Usually Butch is a nickname for something else, in my case its "Clyde"
