  1. Hello everyone, the P-40E is progressing & the paint/decals are complete. The DK decals went on great as you can see--issues are all mine. Once the flat lacquer was applied, I removed the masks and was rewarded with an awesome canopy frame--thank you Johnny @The Spadgent & Giorgio @giemme for the assist on my 1st vacume canopy--now I am going to be a snob and probably use them more frequently. The other good news is my marriage survived the tone shift from flat to gloss to flat --thank you all for the support! I was also very happy with how Microscale Krystalclear attached the rea
  2. Opus, I believe you are on totally on target--about the only thing guaranteed when if comes to Mustang wheel wells is controversy--for your P-51B, I hands down endorse the YZC spar and potentially stringers. As I understand it, on Lopes Hope, Air Corps Aviation's research led them to paint the entire bay YZC (albeit P-51C vs the B you are building). Eduard's P-51D instructions & OLeary's book building the P-51 seem to indicate YZC was used in the entire well starting on the D-15 and fwd. That, said on the D's (block 1 - 10) the concesus seems to be NMF roof with a YZC spar and stringers

  8. Opus, coming along nicely—really great work on the color matching for the cockpit. Question, as I always learn more from folks, what drove you to go with interior green for the wells? I have seen/heard of YZC, NMF, variations of the 2 and completely understand that there are valid colors I am not aware of—I could always be crossing P-51D info into B build as well. Regardless, you are doing a simply spectacular job with this kit—given what you have done so far, I am sure it will turn out to be a masterpiece—best, Erwin

  13. Thanks Jackson--I completely agree--thank you for the airplane compliment--best, Erwin
  14. Opus--I am in the same boat--I am really glad folks like you make time drastically improve my skills... best, Erwin
  15. Few other than those on this forum understand the emotional impact of what you speak of --I think my wife thinks I am going nuts when I relax watching a finish go from a dark gloss to the intended flat hue-- Best, Erwin
