  1. I have a 1/48 Tamiya P-51B that I plan to build as an RAF Mustang Mk.III with Malcolm hood, although since I haven't actually built this kit yet I could just as easily build it with the standard P-51B cockpit canopy (the Tamiya kit provides both options). However, it must be an RAF or Commonwealth air forces bird. I'm looking for recommendations for after market RAF decals. I also have the option of buying a set of used original Tamiya Mustang Mk.III decals, but I have read these are very thick.
  2. First I have ever seen with a Malcolm Hood Also see she carries louvres over the breather plates https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10154982663535025&set=gm.1950113208573917&type=3&theater
  3. Hello, this is the second Kovozavody Prostejov Mustang III I've fínished - this time, in RAF markings for 19th Squadron, based at Peterhead, spring 1945. The model was painted according to the kit instructions, using Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. I painted the 'sky' fuselage band but failed to match the Color of the code letters. *doh!* The yellow/black spinner caused some trouble when I tried to mask the stripes with Yellow Tamiya tape - due to the curvature, I had some paint creeping under the mask and re-touches were done by hand, using Vallejo paints. I've added Qucikboost resin exhausts (
  4. Hello All, Here's my Academy Mustang, build thread here. It's a really nice kit, which I throughly recommend. There are a couple of accuracy issues, the decals are non-cooperative and the colour scheme has a couple of errors, but nothing you can't easily fix or ignore! And finally, with the old, old Airfix Mustang, which was the first kit I ever built: This Airfix one was a nostalgia build. I remember being dismayed the first time around that green water colour wouldn't stick to the wings! Thanks for looking, Adrian
  5. Hello All, I got a bit stalled with my Wessex build so I cracked open the Academy Mustang III. I bought this ages ago. It seems like a very nice kit. There is web discussion about the shape of the canopy windscreen and the kink on the inner wing leading edge. It looks like a Mustang to me/It's only a hobby. Interior detail was very nice and construction proceeded apace. It fits like a dream. The main fuselage has a tiny blip which I left on, thinking it might be an air vent, but when I realised it was the start of the fin fillet, I sanded it off! The only addition was some foil an
  6. Never able to make much of a showing in quality, I continue my efforts to make headway in the quantity department. Finished since January 1: a TSR.2 prototype (Airfix), E.D. "Rosie" Mackie's Tempest V (Academy), Bohdan Arct's Mustang III (Academy), an IRIAF F-14 (Hobbyboss) and an F-5E (also Hobbyboss), a CFS Gnat (Airfix) (surprisingly tricky build, which may tell you how poor my skills are), a 54 Squadron Jaguar GR1 (Hasegawa), and a Voyska-PVO MiG-21bis FISHBED-L (Zvezda). I have made a jillion mistakes, including forgetting to add the anti-glare strip on the Tomcat, but by that point I was
  7. This build started after I read a post by Procopius about mating the Academy 1/72 P-51B wing to the Hasegawa fuselage in order to fix a few shape issues with each. On a whim, I thought I'd give it a try, and here are the results. The Academy wing fits the Hasegawa fuselage with very little modification, and I'm pretty happy with the result - no funny Hasegawa wing leading edge, and no funny Academy canopy or nose air scoop. And, best of all, it was easy. The build thread is here. Both models depict Mustang III's of 315 Sqn using decals/transfers from Techmod and AJ Pre
  8. Inspired by a thread started by our model building hero, Procopius, about combining the Academy and Hasegawa Mustang III kits, I've decided to do just that. And not a moment too soon as the new KP kit is due to arrive any day now. I had a pair of Academy P-51B/C's in the stash already, and managed to find a bargain Hasegawa Mustang III double boxing. Finding that I had an entire afternoon to spare on Sunday while waiting for Micro-sol to do its work on another build, I got to work. This is an out of the box(es) build with no aftermarket planned, except decals. I'm using the Hasegawa fusela
  9. This is the Revell 1/32/P-51B/Mustang III kit originally tooled around 1969. The version I had was a reboxing with new decals for a Mustang III in 2006. The detail of the kit is sparse and the design reflects the current favorite trend at the time it was made; that being raised rivets. In 1969 this was a groovy edition to any kit and showed it was funkadelic “state of the art”. How times have changed. The texture of the plastic with the raised rivets is such that it could be used as a rasp. They are really nicely done; too bad most Mustangs had smooth skins. This is one of my kits that
  10. In an effort to eliminate my shelf of doom (shelves really) I discovered this kit and a Hobbycraft 1/48 Bf-109 C. The 109 is almost complete and for the life of me I dont know why I didnt finish it. I also found this kit with a number of the parts started and painted. I think this kit was put up when I moved some stuff around and just forgot about it. It should be a quick build. Here is the box art and the parts in the box. The cockpit needs to be put together and some more detail painting done on the parts before the fuselage can be built up. I started with the cockpit floor as only the sea
  11. Ok first one off the blocks.... This was a very late decision for me and not what was originally planned. But Ii just loved the look of it and it was quite different...my kind of build! The base model will be a 1/48 Tamiya P-51D like the picture of the box below.........hmm the actual model hasn’t arrived yet! The conversion is 1/48 Heritage Models Cavalier Turbo Mustang III kit which looks to be a nice conversion, accuracy...will have to look at some drawings! Just have to chop the nose and under radiator off glue in the resiny bits and thats it.....simple! White metally bits S
  12. Hi Guys, This will be my build for the GB. It will be a straight from the box one as I think I will not have much time as a co-host. It's the Revell (nah ICM) 1/48 Mustang III. This is a almost copy of the Tamiya version so it won't be to hard to build. The only different thing about this build will be that I will be painting it in 122 Squadron colours of the American volunteer P/O J.N. Thorne that still surved the RAF at that period. I will bee painting the model as the plane he flew when he shot down 2 Fw-190's and damaged one on July the 26th 1944. He was at that time flying from the te
  13. Hi all, This is a WIP, and it's my Tamiya 1/48 Mustang III, as you've probably guessed by the title!! I'm doing this as part of the group build on Flory Models, and thought I'd share it here as well to get involved. This will be my forth or fifth model since returning to the hobby. I am yet to complete a model I'm actually happy with!! I'm also 9/10ths through an old model 1/72 airfix GR7, which doesn't seem to want to get finished, and is a real pig in places. I'm also 3/4 through an Airfix Sabre which is a joy in comparison. This kit is a different world though, the fit is so good it
  14. Hi all, I thought I'd share my collection with you all. Firstly, I have a confession, many of my models were built by a great chap who I think may be on these boards (Graham), either way I would not take praise for someone else's hard work. To make it easier I shall put the pics of MY builds first, then Graham's. Incase you're wondering, the reason I commissioned so many was that I just didn't have the patience at the time and I knew there were people out there who would do a much better job than I. I'm going to start my own again, just a shame they won't be as good as the commissioned on
  15. Hello one and all, First of all, I hope it's okay to join in on this group build even tho I hadn't agreed to join it? I will be building a pair of Mustangs, both RAF ones, I know the theme is the Battle for the Third Reich, is the way up from Italy allowed? If not I still have the other model which I will be building at the same time anyhow. I started these two as I was waiting for the filler on my F-15 ACTIVE to finish drying/setting. Well onto the shots. Box shots... I am aware that the box art on the above model depicts an aircraft that was in China in 1944, thus eliminating
