  1. Hello Ben, I'm glad that you like my work. The NMF areas were coverered by soft self-adhesive aluminium foil originally intended for flying models ("Flite-metal" may be you hear somewhere). Very useful stuff! The painted areas was airbrushed by decanted Tamiya AS-12 Bare Metal Silver which actually gives very nice smooth finish. Later I'll share more detailed photos and "how to" tips. Alexey

  3. Olivier, you show here late "universal" bracket. The early 108 Gal. fuel tanks brackets were very different. Look at your reference photo #137D. They were straight wide-shoulder rough steel bars with welded-on screw attachment points.
  4. Some details of new PE set are installed on model. The set made of 0.05mm thick stainless steel and has many optional parts.

  5. I hope this pics will help you to make correct rivet patterns. I "riveted" Koichiro Abe's drawings using photo of real airframes. You can see the difference between Eduard plastic and real patterns. Unfortunately, the lower surface drawing is not ready yet. 109rivet_top_2000 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr 109rivet_2000 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr
  6. Hi Olivier, The MENG flaps are slightly bigger, than Tamiya's offer and it seems more correct. Tamiya's ailerons slightly longer, than MENG, so it is possible to shorten them by 1mm and made cutout in the wing slightly bigger in depht and width. The broader chord will not be notiseable in extended position. Have you seen the A.M.U.R. Reaver other PE bits for Tamiya P-51D? Cockpit and Radio and Wheel Wells ?
  7. Look at this P-51D-10NA 44-14245 Floogie II. She still does'n have the button but already has new K-14 field-installed gunsight. http://www.americanairmuseum.com/media/459 And one more interesting detail - the front retractable part of the flap is also painted over by green.
  8. There are masters for new resin sets. 1/32 for Revell new P-51D DSC_9746 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr DSC_9742 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr DSC_9754 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr DSC_9753 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr DSC_9750 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr DSC_9749 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr DSC_9748 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr 1/48 for Meng kit this time DSC_9759 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr DSC_9755 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr DSC_9761 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr The masters are maid using original NAA plas, so the rivets size and number are true for scale.

    The flare buckets will be in production soon!
  10. Hello Olivier, This is flap riveting pattern drawn for Meng P-51D flaps replacement. Rivet patterns here from NAA plans. Flap by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr
  11. This picture gives you an idea how it looks like DSC_0450 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr
  12. There are templates for fuselage part master (for vacu) and armored glass. I made the upper fuselage part from thin clear sheet using vacuum formihg process. Take in account that P-51B has different engine cowling profile. It rises slightly higher towards winshield in comparison with P-51D, so yo'll need some additional work to blend smoothly the new fuselage top and P-51D cowling.

  13. Hi Antonio, some years ago I started to convert Dragon's P-51D into B model. This work haven't finished yet, but I made some research and drew scale plans for some parts. Here is 1/32 P-51B cockpit. You need just download full size image and print in real size to get 1/32 paper drawing. P51B_cockpitarrangement1 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr
