Airfix 1/72 P-51B

Airfix first released this in 1978, kit No. 020066-6. Before this, we had two choices on building a P-51B, Monogram and Lindberg. So it was nice to see a new kit of this aircraft. This is another of my old builds, it was done in 1984. I [...]

P-51B 356FS/354FG UK May 1944 – One week wonder

After spending 6 weeks working on the Hobbycraft Mohawk IV obsessing over tiny details, I decided to do an easy build and do it in no more that one week. So here is my one-week wonder, the Tamiya 1/48 P-51B. The rules where, I got 7 days [...]

Tamiya’s P-51B in the livery of Don S. Gentile’s “Shangri-La”. USAAF 4th Fighter Group early 1944.

My completed P-51B Shangri -La. I enjoyed this build which was mostly out of the box with the exception of the main landing gear wheels which are from Hussar. I also used the Lifelike Decals set for this aircraft. The build log can be [...]

Bill Whisner’s Ponies

Tamiya P-51B to do 352nd FG ace Bill Whisner's "Princess Elizabeth," a name he put on to celebrate the visit to the group by Princess Eilzabeth, later Elizabeth II. That fall, he traded up to a P-51D-10 he named "Moonbeam [...]

Shangri-La P-51B Mustang

Here's my take on Don Gentile's P-51B Mustang "Shangri-La" based on Tamiya's 1/48 scale kit. This rendition does not include all of the "kill" markings and shows the spinner with the two-tone red/white finish as the [...]

Gentile’s P-51

Here’s my interpretation of Don Gentile’s P-51 “Shangri-La” using the Tamiya 1/48 kit. It’s another build from some years ago to add to my iModeler archive. I used the Aires cockpit set for this one.
