1/48 Otaki P-51D

May 18, 2024 · in Aviation · · 9 · 142

Took my P-51D out for some pictures. I built it about 25 years ago. Used Monogram landing gear, Ministry of Small Aircraft Production #4811 P-51D decals. Marking for Edward McComas.

  1. Very nice. I loved MSAP decals. Still have partial sheets

  2. I almost forgot, painted with Floquil Old
    Siver. Gawd, how I miss Floquil paints!

  3. Very nice work on this Brian. It shows it's not the newness of the model but the ability of the modeler that determines the outcome.

    Was just going through the Decal Dungeon and waaay down in a cell on the fourth sub-basement level, I found the remains of some MSAP decals - P-51Bs, which give me some nice options for the new Eduard kit.

  4. Still looks wonderful after all those years, Brian @bzak
    A very unusual but beautiful scheme.

  5. Fantastic job, Brian!
    Looking awesome after 25 years!

  6. Looks great after all these years.

  7. Nice work, Brian. I preferred that kit to the Monogram Mustang back in the 70s.

  8. Nicely done! Interesting markings.
