  2. In the Czech Modelforum it's mentioned that after the 1/48th MiG-21, Spitfire and Bf.109 families, Eduard has as long term project the North American P-51 Mustang in the same scale. Wait and see. Source: http://www.modelforum.cz/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=68170&start=5865 V.P.
  3. Hi Folks! This is my first Group Build so be gentle , I was originally going to enter with the Vulcan kit I picked up from a charity shop a while back as it was next on my build list anyway, but sadly when I dug out the box the price tag on it was £14.99, so that was out. I went and had a look in Dave Coley's "10 quid or less" section and found this mustang kit. Free tweezers and pen! The Moulding all looks really nice, with good detail and very little flash. I'll be giving them a good clean before I start though as theres a lot of mould release still

  5. I bought this kit back in 2018 (I believe I even made a topic here asking for advice regarding ICM's Mustang). I began building the kit as soon as I got home, but was disappointed because of the poor fit of the fuselage and cockpit, so I left it inside my spares box. Fast forward to April 2021 (Tuesday 13/4/21), while being bored, I remembered I had this kit, so I pulled it out and decided to build it. I'm pretty pleased of how it came out. I used Tamiya decals.
  6. Here's some photo's of one of my latest, an Accurate Miniatures 1/48 Mustang 1a converted into a Mustang Mk 1 at the time of the Dieppe raid. It's AG470, RU*M as flown by F/O Hollis Hills (an American) flying with 414 Sqdn, RCAF when he scored the first Mustang victory over an FW-190. I used the Ultracast resin conversion set, an Ultracast seat and fishtail exhaust, a set of decals produced by IPMS Canada, and some scratch building. It's painted with Tamiya acrylics, and weathered with oils and pastels. Hope you like, Colin

    1/72 RAF Mustang III

    Hi All I'm planning to build an RAF Mustang III from the KP kit fairly soon & have started a little research & have got together some extras to add to the build. I'm thinking of building an aircraft based in Peterhead/Dallachy that was used to escort the strike wings on their raids in the Norwegian Fjords. Probably settled on YT-N from 65 squadron with white nose/spinner or, if I'm feeling brave, something from 315 squadron with black/yellow stripes on the spinner and nose (masking nightmare!). One of the photographs in 'A Separate Little War' shows a pile of 10
  9. Hello gents and ladies! A fella gifted me Airfix's 48th scale P-51D. (The bozooka carrying one, I dropped its link below) I will receive it within a week. I had read that to increase speed, wing upper panels were filled on some planes. I wonder if my plane had filled panels or not. I appreciate if someone can enlight me. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/airfix-a05131-north-american-p-51d-mustang--1015635 Regards from cold Ankara. Cheers.
  10. This thread on building and comparing Airfix P-51 kits really got started in the P-51 STGB just finished this year, where I managed to complete 'Fool's Paradise IV' using the first tooling Airfix kit. I have continued on but since I intend to keep this WIP thread going for some time, I'll include this first build here as comparisons will be made later. For 'Fool's Paradise IV', I've got the Red Stripe Bag 'boxing'... The kit comes in silver-grey plastic, only 30 parts. Raised detail outside but absolutely zero detail inside the cockpit area, other than two pins fo

  12. Evening all! Lockdown has been pretty productive for me so far - this is the 2nd build I've completed after my F-15E. This time, I went for a 1/48 P-51D Mustang from Meng. I chose this kit as it is oen of their new "glue free" models so hopefully it would be a simple build - just what I need after the rather complex GWH F-15E. Also, my dad had been asking me to build him something with a metal finish...so, two birds, one Mustang So, here it is! For the NMF I used MRP metallic lacquers for the first time - They were really great to work with; sprayed v
  13. Hi guys and girls I'm back again this time with a mustang. I wanted to do one in a British livery and also try out some metallic paint for the first time and opted for the AK xtreme metal range. I used the black base, polished aluminium an aluminium left it about a day and a half. It was dry to the touch so picked it up to carry on and after a few seconds the paint seemed to start to go soft thus ruining the paint job, so rubbed the areas back and tried again. All was well until I tried to mask off panels for the variation and ruined the paint again. After about 4 attempts I have

  15. Hello guys, with my Mig 3 finished, I decided to start my fourth Mustang in 48 scale. I'll be using Barracuda decals for the P-51D CY-G. The description on the history section indicate the pilot flew two aircraft with the same registration but with different builder numbers. What differentiated both aircraft was that one had D-Day stripes and the other not. I'll be building the aircraft that didn't have the stripes (because I'm lazy). Still, since I don't trust the nose checkerboards to conform the nose profile, I'll be masking and painting the nose checkerboards. This will be a
  16. Is there anything definitive on the colour of the sides (outer) of the P-51B Mustang radiator flap? The vent that lowers at the rear of the fuselage. Searching on the web and BM have drawn a blank. various possibilities occur to me; Same as the underside (neutral grey for the plane I'm modelling). Zinc Chromate, either straight (yellowish) or mixed (interior green). Silver, either NMF or doped. Cheers,
  17. Hi Folks, Probably a simple question for the Mustang experts out there (maybe @gingerbob?)... Should the top engine cowl have a panel line down it? It would be good to know before the paint goes on. Many thanks, Oops - I meant to post this in Mustang Chat, but got it wrong! Can you move it for me please Patrice? @TEMPESTMK5
  18. Hi all, I'm appealling, I hope, to the many Mustang experts that frequent BM. My question is about the putties panel joints and did maintenance depots continue to maintain the putty after WW2, through the Cold War period (hence this forum)? My real interest is those aircraft that made their way to Latin countries. I made a statement in one post recently that post-WW2 this putty wasn't replaced after majot overhauls but the truth is that I have no evidence to support this. I hope that somebody knows :). Thanks in hope! Martin

  21. I really expected that someone else would have entered this one by now I bought this one just the other day specifically to fill the gap If I remember correctly after all so many years this is possibly the first Matchbox kit I built when Matchbox first got plastic models into the shops Back then I built it as Dooleybiird and I wanted to do it again, and I shall but not with the kit decals. A previous owner has cut the decal sheet, some Dooleybird decals are missing and although this sheet looks fine in the picture some of the ma
  22. With the Mustangs GB starting up, I realized I have two unfinished sitting on my shelf. They’re actually around 95% respectively 99% finished but somehow I have spent years not managing to get the last decals up and do the final grooming. There is even a thread: The unfinished ones are Swede’s Steed and Short Fuse Sallee. Let’s see if the peer pressure here can make me finally finish them.

  24. Hello folks - now this: With all the buzz about that new P51 kit from eduard, I thought I’d pop this one from the stash and get this oldie but still a goodie made. After my last 2 builds being nmf, I thought I’d do one more - hopefully using the lessons learned and expanding my alclad chops a little further. Also going a scale bigger to 1/48 - more plastic making more fun I hope. It will be nice doing a larger model after so many 1/72s - detailing those smaller models can be hard on the eyes..! (Maybe there’s a part of me that wants this built so I can justif
