  3. 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
  4. A happy new year to you all (if it's not too late to say that)! I thought I would greet the new year by starting a new build and scanning the stash my eye was caught by this (apologies for the cat which is aftermarket and not included in the box): It's an Aldi purchase from a couple of years ago. I have been unexpectedly excited by the revelation that Arma are about to bring out a new P51B/C so I thought it would be nice to have a go at what seems to be one of the better 1/72 examples of the Mustang currently available. I started my research fo
  5. Have we ever had a single type group build for a car? What else could offer more variety in both colourful prototype cars and a plethora of kits than the original Pony Car the Ford Mustang? None! So; any scale, any material, any year, any kit, for street, for strip, for a raceway with turns too, factory stock, street machine, race car, Shelby or "secretary" Mustang, Mach 1, Boss 302/429, GT, Bullitt, 1964 1/2 to 2021; this is it as long as it's a Ford Mustang! Any takers? V-P 1) vppelt68 (host) 2) Kitkent 3) johnlambert 4) cmatthewbacon 5) TonyW 6) Alan R
  6. F-6D Cockpit (648600 for Eduard) 1:48 Eduard Brassin Eduard’s new Reconnaissance Mustang, the F-6D went under the microscope here, and now we have a finely detailed resin cockpit to augment the already impressive detail you’ll find in the kit. As is now usual with Eduard's larger resin sets, they arrive in the new deep Brassin cardboard box, with the resin parts safely cocooned in bags, a foam sheet in the bottom and the instructions folded around acting as padding. Inside the box are forty-three resin parts of various sizes, a fret of Photo-Et
  7. Maverick's P-51D Mustang 1:72 Airfix The North American P-51 Mustang is one of the most famous and easily-recognisable of Allied types to have served during the Second World War. It was originally designed to a British requirement for a low-altitude fighter, and because it was designed around the Alison V-1710 engine, it had limited performance at higher altitudes. This shortcoming was famously addressed by the marriage of North Americans airframe to the Rolls Royce Merlin aero engine. Once so equipped, the Mustang was able to take on Luftwaffe fighters on equal o
  8. 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.
  9. Hello All This is my latest build, the 1/48 Airfix Mustang Mk IV Painted mainly with Vallejo Metal Color Aluminium & Silver plus various Tamiya acrylics for details. Weathered with Flory washes and Abteilung 502 oils. Thanks for looking Cheers Steve
  10. Hi, The third (and last for a while) of my models, which is a vintage since it is 40 years old and which I refreshed a bit during last week-end. it is P 51 B Mustang, done from a Monagram's racer set (in box besides P 51 there was also a F8F Bearcat). The plastic of model was bright red (!). The Bearcat went to people but P 51 stayed with me for 40 years, as I said already. The painting scheme is fameous Shangri-La of Don Gentile, 336th Sq, 8th Army USAAF, UK 1944. Decals by ESCI. The MGs are from needles for injection - this was my routine already in 1977... During last week-end, af
  11. My next build is a factory sealed Monogram P-51B: This was a "sorry I goofed up your order" gift from an ebay vendor. I initially wasn't too interested because of the raised detail and all, but now I think I can tackle it and maybe do it a little justice. I'm not a rescriber -- it just looks terrible when I do it, so I have other plans, but more on that later. Can you imagine spending 99 cents on a model? I felt weird taking the shrink wrap off what I figured to be about a 45 year old kit. But, I did it and here's what I was gre
  12. Eduard 1/48 + 1/72 Battle Britain Ltd Ed Bf110's coming soon to MJW Models! We're expecting these anytime over the next week or two. Both kits will include parts and decals to make one of 12 different Bf110C or D's that took part in the Battle of Britain. Also released at the same time is the F-51D/K Mustang Profipack. All will be at discounted prices, roughly around 10% off UK RRP! Any interest, please let us know Also don't forget we have a homepage full of kits on offer right now! Also, lockdown is coming to England later in the week. We will remain open as a mail order busines
  13. Hi, I would like to share with you our current project. We decided to start a long time waited for series. Now we have almost all the information and kits to do the North American P51 series. I am still working on the reaserch but I have the preliminary list.

  14. Me.262A-1a & P-51B Combat Set (03711) 1:72 Revell Believe it or not (most of you will), the technologically advanced Messerschmitt Me.262 and the P-51 Mustang did actually square off against each other in the skies over Germany. Not many P-51Bs would have still been in service, but even though there was a huge difference in top speed, the doughty Mustang shot down a number of these shark-like fighters, especially at the weaker points of their flight envelope during take-off and landing, where the low spool-up of the jet engines made them an easier target.
  15. Hi folk's, don't get exited not for me Airfix's latest masterpiece but Pegasus hobbies easy kit but before you hit the off button it;s surprising how nice these kit's can look with a bit of care, And how inspirational can their story be it's just a pity Spielberg didn't do the movie! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuskegee_Airmen One for later in the GB.
  16. Hi all Started few month ago, finally I finished this kit last night The kit is beautifull and very well detailled espacially when you have exhaust pipe and wheels in resin parts I made an error when I painted the wheels bays. I inverted the colors but see my error too late. I have the royal class box and choose the "shark mouth" scheme I painted the shark mouth, roundels and letters for a best result. The weathering is light because I prefere a plane like this Other pics
  17. This is my 1/48 scale Revell Mustang MKIII, which is actually the ICM Mustang. I built it OOB and used Vallejo and Mig acrylics for the paintjob. It was an enjoyable build, I think Mustangs are some of the nicer subjects to build.. even as a plastic model, it just looks and feels right. Hope you like the pictures. Kind regards, Gerben
  18. 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
  19. Morning folk's well here goes for my long awaited crack at a 1/48 Blitzbuild,Enzo gave the thumbs up for the slight head start as the cockpit was painted thinking about it these aircraft were original P51's rather than the later US version so I left it in green.So 8 o'clock and here's the parts. This will be an hour session so here's progress. Beautiful fit not a jot of filler needed I've just painted the wheels and prop while I let the rest dry,I was perusing images etc of these SAAF Mustang's and a lot of folk seem to point to the fact these ai
  20. Hi all, It's been a while since I started new project and have already made some progress but decided to share build process here. Hope you will find it interesting. My plan is to build nice and shiny fourth generation Ford Mustang from mid '90s. I made my mind long time ago and want to have it in bright yellow with black and white interior. Something like this: So this is what we have to start with - quite simple and descent quality kit from Tamiya. Nicely moulded body with some minor issue required a bit of sanding. Model can be buil
  21. Hello all; Here's my latest effort. I tried something a bit out of my comfort zone on this and used Bare Metal Foil for the NMF. It was both easier and harder than I imagined it would be, but overall I am pleased with how it turned out, and more importantly I ended up quite enjoying the process. I made enough mistakes for it to take almost two full sheets of foil to cover this one Mustang, but I learned a lot and am looking forward to the next one. The decals came from a twenty year old SuperScale sheet which behaved surprisingly well, though the larger ones had a preponderance
  22. I'll jump in with the Lift Here Models 1/72 Piper Enforcer, which started out as the Cavalier Mustang, an aircraft created for the COIN or counter-insurgency mission. It began as a creation of Dave Lindsay, owner of Cavalier Aircraft, but as his company was too small to mass produce the design, it was sold to Piper Aircraft around 1970. Not to be confused with the earlier Cavalier Turbo Mustang III, which used a Rolls-Royce Dart 519 engine, the PA-48 Enforcers used the Lycoming T-55-L-9 turbo. While never accepted for manufacture, they were still 19% ACTUAL Mustang, and they lo

  25. Hi all, The Australian Capital Territory Scale Model Society (ACTSMS) here in Canberra runs an annual competition called "The Kittyhawk Cup", where all participants must build the same kit, out of the box. This year, the kit selected is the series of Airfix 1/48 Mustangs (any of the boxings). Kits must be built OOB, with the option to utilise other decals. I haven't entered the competition for a very long time, and have no real idea about Mustangs (being mainly a WW1 aircraft guy), but I decided to enter anyways. Not only that, but I also foolishly decided to build not one, but tw
