The other thoroughbred from WWII P-51

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Here's another project of mine.

3 american aircrafts including 1 and a half under british management.

Both are early Mustangs with différents armament and of course different wing.

1 MTO, 1 ETO and the last from CBI

There's an Accurate min and 2 ICM, serioulsly they're almost identical.

 

WP_20161123_17_15_09_Pro

The first to be finished, I guess will be the MTO one a P-51A from an US Sqdn on loan to an brit squadron. The colours will be ... Let's say, unusual.

One of my favourite game :D:P, you both should know the kind of remark "are you sure about the colours ???"

I modify the camera rack for 2 of thede Mustang, because, you receive this...

WP_20161123_17_16_07_Pro

And you must have that...

WP_20161123_17_17_18_Pro

So, I cut the brackets, throw away the original support, add an armour plate ( from her cousins ) slightly modified.

Add wiring to the camera,

WP_20161123_17_15_32_Pro

That seem promising, there's also lots of sanding but the ICM are worst.

WP_20161123_17_15_43_Pro

I keep on going, modifying the wings according to the 3 different type of early mustang is funny.

Thank for watching.

Some news of the 'Stangs,

the 2 ICM are improving, fuselages not closed yet.

The Accurate start to look like a Mustang now

WP_20170308_23_38_25_ProWP_20170308_23_38_33_Pro

I finished the rack with evergreen,

WP_20170308_23_38_58_Pro

But as I was clearing some parts in my stock, I found back this one...

WP_20170308_23_39_27_Pro

Did anyone know this brand ??

That finding has sparked a new interest and a question.

What about trying a vac ??:idea::tmi:

What ??? Starting another project ???

WP_20170308_23_39_36_Pro

No, for today at least, I will find a good plan and dimensions before startin' her.

Have a nice day.

Sincerely.

Hello Dears,

As I spend more time in some walk in our surrounding forest, enjoying the sunny weather, Kits are in idle for these days...

WP_20170527_19_52_06_Pro

But I found a trick to reproduce the camera bracket, here it is

WP_20170530_22_47_52_Pro

The wiring will go on a switch box over the camera and I will point the lenses looking peering in the hole

Must make a second one, almost the same:o:hmmm: will be fun !

Have a very nice day and take care.

Sincerely.

Hello Dears,

Here are the 4 that receive most of my today's attentions

WP_20170902_23_29_08_Pro

The next RFI will be a race between the 190 and the Mk IX since the MiG has one more problem !

See you later !

Sincerely.

So once again Eduard Spitfire overtrees and a bit of sanding...

Und Foilà !

Corsaircorp,

 

Wings was a maker of some excellent, well-detailed  short-run vacform  kits, as good as and comparable to Eagles Talon, who also did the Fireball. When MPM released their injected FR-1, I sold off my Wings vacform, but kept the Eagles Talon one. I have attached a link to illustrations of many of their releases. Esoteric were probably the best of the vacforms, along with the last series from Rareplanes,  and did an amazing assortment of golden age USN biplanes and monoplanes, almost all of which I have, but haven't yet screwed up the courage to do one, as I need some vacforms under my belt so I  don't ruin one, as it would be pretty much impossible to find, much less afford a replacement!

Mike

Hi CC, I didn't realise until now that you had a separate WIP on the P-51, I had just seen it as part of the background to your Spitfire builds. I have the Hobbycraft 1/32 version ( which is scaled up from the Accurate Minoatures kit ) so this is very interesting to me, especially the camera support construction.

Watching closely.

Hello Dears,

Believe me, the pony is no longer looking that way !!

Almost finished, but I told about a surprise, so I did'nt show a lot !!

I elected to use these exhaust, seem to be the ones on the real thing !

And it is far better than the original ones !

Take care Gents and keep on modelling !!

28065179519_d69919c20b_b.jpg

So I cut the transparencies !!

The landing light is upgraded too, I used an overtree Spitfire rear vew Mirror and here we go !

I will have at least a RFI per month in 2018, That will be short but I still work in that way !

Have a very nice day of modelling !!

Sincerely.
