I started this Mustang last year
This bird will be finished with the markings of LOU IV (P-51D-5-NA from 361st FG)
I started with the cockpit components as usual. Cockpit area built OOB.
The kit and its fitting are excellent. Though no need to aftermarket products I tried to modify the wheel well area by adding some wires.
Natural metal surfaces are painted by Alclad. D-day bands are painted by masking .
I will use Eagle cal decal set.
Nowadays it s ready to accept decals.
