1/48 Eduard P-51D Mustang Tales of Iwo Jima VLR

The P-51D Mustang is more famous for combat in Europe, but was also used in the Pacific near the end of WW2. After the capture of Iwo Jima by the USMC, the US Army Air Force and USN Seabees worked on turning it into a giant fighter and [...]

Tamiya P-51D, 'Petie 2nd', John C. Meyer.

This is the Tamiya 1/48 P-51D Mustang, marked as John C. Meyer's "Petie 2nd". Typical of Tamiya, easy assembly and a nice fit. The only weak points are the wheel well not going back to the spar, and a prop that is too wide and [...]

1/48 P-51 D, 'Miss Marilyn II'

This is the early ICM (Tamiya knockoff) 1/48 P-51D Mustang, marked as "Miss Marilyn II". As an early ICM kit, there were a number of challenges, HUGE sink marks, short shots, incorrect detail parts copied from other kits, and a [...]

Revell 1/32 P-51D 5NA Mustang

Tamiya's counterpart is superior with respect to details, fit of parts and surface texture. Yet, Revell's economic option looks equally good when completed. I chose the olive drab overall finish to represent Lou IV and leave out any blue [...]

Christmas Day, 1944 ETO. Major George Preddy "Cripes-A-Mighty III" Revell 1/32 P-51D-5

Hello everyone. This build was done to pay respects to a man who gave his life on Christmas Day, 1944, in the name of freedom. His name was George Preddy, who was a Major in the US Army Air Corps. Tragically he was killed on this day [...]

1/48 Monogram P-51D "Detroit Miss"

I bought this kit on the cheap from a popular online auction site. The finished product falls into the "6 footer" category. Stay 6 feet back and it looks like a P-51 Step a little closer and you will see the thick decals, poor [...]
