This is my first Mustang. I finished her about 3 weeks ago. (OK, to be honest it's not my first Mustang, but the first one was too ugly to be allocated shelf space, so I binned it a couple of years ago )
It is finished in the markings of Captain Chuck Yeager, 357th Fighter Group, 363rd Fighter Squadron, 8th Airforce, Leiston Airfield, England, 1944-45.
Aftermarket stuff includes resin propeller and spinner, wheels, exhausts, droptanks and wheel wells, and also some Eduard photo-etch.
The wings was puttied and painted a mix of aluminium and light grey. The fuselage was painted pure aluminium. All Vallejo colors.
I used BarracudaCals decals as a guide, but painted most of the markings and national insignia.
I kept the weathering level low, as period pictures show that this aircraft was kept clean and well maintained.
Thanks for watching!
