This is my attempt at Hasegawa’s 1/48 Mustang. Boxed by Italeri, it comes with an attractive decal sheet depicting 4 RAF Mustangs, and being a s****r for a sharkmouth aircraft, that is the one I chose. There is no way a P-51 do[...]
This kit is from Airfix it's a 1/48 scale. It was really easy to build. The decals was not very good so I painted lightning and black bands myself. I do a very hard weathering for fun 😆. That all hope you will like my first ww2 model.
I had originally planned to build the kit´s clone, ICM/Revell´s Mustang Mk.III, but after getting frustrated with the warped fuselage halves, I decided to get the real thing.
The Tamiya kit was a pleasure to build, everything fitted perfectly.
For me, one of the most intimidating aspects of building a Mustang is the exhaust trail. Merlin's don't really put out black "soot"...they discolor the surrounding metal into a beautiful rainbow with a touch of lead deposits, giving a light grey[...]

A commission build complete earlier this year. Not a bad kit, but at 1:32 it is really lacking in detail in the cockpit...very basic indeed! The pilot figure was added from aftermarket. I had to reshape the carburettor intake as the kit offering[...]
My most recent addition to the Nose Art Group build is Tamiya's really nice but old P-51D, "Passion Wagon". This A/C was flown by Lt Arvil Roberson assigned to the 362nd Fighter Squadron, 357th Fighter Group. They were the first 8th Air Force un[...]
Enough of my OD posts for today.
Two 1/72 P-51 ponies of the 4th FG.
First up is an Academy P-51B with homemade decals (what little there is anyway) in the markings of Col. Donald Blakeslee. OOB
Second, an Airfix P51D in markings from a Supers[...]
One of my contributions to the Nose Art Group Build started by Jaime Carreon. Big shout out to Jaime for starting this Group Build as it's been a lot of fun. The P-51D I'm posted depicts "Duchess Arlene" flown by 1Lt Robert W. Williams of the 10[...]
Summer activities has consumed most of my modeling time but I was able to finally complete another Tuskegee Airman aircraft. The above represents a P-51C piloted by LTC Benjamin O. Davis of the 100th FS, 332nd FG in Ramitelli, Italy 1944/5. Davi[...]
