  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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. Mark Serial Code Sqd Place Time 1 A-36 Apache HK944 C 1437 Strategic Reconnaissance Flight Foggia, Italy nov-43 2 A-36 Apache EW998 NO A&AEE March 1943 3 I AG645 RZ/W 241 Bottisham November 1942 4 I AL995 S 2 RAF Bottisham March 1943 5 I AG351/G Air Fighting Development Unit (A.F.D.U.)

  6. 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.
  7. 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, http://216.187.79.26/2009/reviews/kits/p51bpegasusreviewbs_1.htm 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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
  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
  11. 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
  12. In the Facebook comments about a future P-51H kit (Link), Modelsvit team has also announced that a new tool 1/48th North American F-82G Twin Mustang is also in the pipe line. Source: https://www.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2231688117100227&id=1854784001457309 V. P.
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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

  19. 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
  20. 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

  22. P-51D Mustang Canopy Set for Revell Kit. 1:32 AeroCraft Models There was little doubt that once the new Revell 1.32 P-51D is a great kit, however one of the areas that lets it down is the overly thick canopy. Ali has worked on this with a new resin canopy. This new canopy is very thin for a resin one, and this reviewer at first thought it was vac form. The canopy is thin and as distortion free as it can be while still keeping all the lines needed for masking. Indeed for masking internal support will be a must. The caopy shown here is as it comes and the clarity is
  23. P-51H Mustang (4817) 1:48 ModelSvit The P-51H was the final production version of North American's famous fighter, and probably the least well known. Designed with all the experience gained with the production and experimental aircraft,, and powered by the new V-1650-9 engine it was the pinnacle of the types development. Compared to the more famous P-51D as well as a more powerful engine the H had a longer fuselage with larger tail to reduce the tendency to yaw. A new radiator served to streamline the aircraft, which as well as being lighter enabled to aircraft to
  24. 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
  25. Started a couple of weeks ago building my Favourite Xmas gift, Eduard Royal Class P-51D. Like you probably know this Edition always comes with 2 complete kits, and this one also spares to build a third if you have the wings and elevators available in your stash. So it’s also a dual build, the goal is to complete both a D-5 and a later D model (with fin) at the same time.
