Silver Horse, and Fighting Rooster

I first encountered the Mustang model in the early nineties. It was an Airfix kit from the Aircraft of the aces series. Of course, then the model seemed to be perfect in its performance. I painted it with the usual Humbrol paints and a [...]

1/48 Tamiya P-51B John T. Godfrey

My Tamiya 1/48 P-51b in the markings of 4th FG star, Captain John T. Godfrey. Replaced the cockpit with a True Details resin item, Aeromaster decals except for some home made kill markings. Used Tamiya AS-12 Bare Metal Silver, overcoated [...]

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.

My PTO builds

Had more than I thought. 1/48 Monogram P-51B with a hand painted “Tommy’s Dad”. 1/48 Otaki P-51D decals by MSAP 1/48 Hasegawa P-38 decals by Aeromaster 1/48 Otaki Ki-61 decals by Superscale 1/72 A6M3 wing tips from a 1/72 Monogram [...]

Built in 2018. Tamiya Mustang Mk.III kit, main markings are from Kits World Decals, the rest from Aeromaster and the kit. Vallejo Metal Color Aluminium for the NMF, Gunze and Tamiya acrylics for the rest, brass wire for the whip [...]

Scarlet Kate and Little Joe

I built these two 1/72 P-51Bs to compare the Academy and Revell kits. I enjoyed both builds, although the Academy kit – finished as 'Scarlet Kate' – was perhaps the easiest of the two in terms of fit and ease of construction. I also [...]

Two shiny "little friends": here is the first one.

Recently, I have decided to once again tackle a rather problem-free construction. Having Airfix's 1:24 P-51 on my workbench and two 1:32 Mustangs from Revell and Trumpeter, I chose the Tamiya kit. A few etched parts from Eduard freshened [...]
