  1. Hi all, thought I'd put my placeholder down for this GB I will be building Eduard's P-51D-20 Mustang as an RAF 19 Squadron Mustang Mk.IV in 1945 Here's the obligatory kit photos 🙂 Couple of parts appear to have come off - especially one of the canopies on the clear sprue wheel. AM is Look Instrument panel, Brassin Wheels and Exhausts and Xtradecal Decals Still working on my Beaufighter build in the WW2 Twins Mega Build but can't wait for the off on this one Thanks for looking Many regards Matt
  2. I'm nearly at the end of this build after more than four years. It's on its feet and all the nav lights and landing gear doors are attached. I still need to add the antenna wire and the pulley block that guides it through the bubble canopy...well that and some paint touch-ups here and there. If anyone cares to see in-progress photos the link is at the end. The weathering was done with water-soluble graphite pencils that I found in an art supply store in town. The beauty of it is that it can be wiped off with a damp cloth if you are not happy with the results. With a sharp point you can wet it and follow the panel lines. It will lay down a fine line of sludge which you can then wipe in the direction of the airflow. It can also outline access hatches and panels. The thing to remember, which I learned the hard way, was that it darkens considerably when hit with a clear coat. The exhaust stains were another learning experience. I had never applied exhaust stains with an airbrush before, and the first attempt was with extremely thinned black paint and it was far too dark, and black. I managed to remove it all without too much trauma. The second attempt was with my own mix of dark grey and red-brown thinned to almost water. I learned that the perfect amount of stain was about two or three passes BEFORE you think it looks good. 🙂 Oddly enough in some light it looks thin and grey, in other lighting it looks very dark. I'm not touching it again! Sorry about the weird backgrounds, I was experimenting with lighting and background colours with my DSLR camera. Hopefully I'll do better when it's done.
  3. After too long lurking around the forum I've finally taken the plunge and shown my face! I returned to this great hobby recently after a 30-odd year hiatus, and with the help of much advice from this august body I'm finally getting to a stage where I'm happy to show the results of my toils. Sooooo... Airfix's excellent newish tool 1:48 Mustang IV finished OOB (except for Eduard PE interior set) as CV@A of 3 SQN RAAF, based in Italy, July 1945. Airbrushed with a mixture of Tamiya and AK Interactive acrylics (both excellent), finished with Micro Gloss coat for decal coat, Flory wash and Tamiya matt coat from a rattle can. Because the camo pattern was relatively simple I freehanded the Dark Green and I'm quite pleased with the outcome. I loved the engineering of the kit, and the decals were mostly excellent (albeit with some disappointing silvering on the signature Southern Cross - doh). I'm mostly pretty happy with the final result, despite the usual plethora of minor niggles & errors. Happy to receive any feedback - please be kind! Cheers, Roger
