  1. Hi mates, I'll take part in this contest with this Airfix Kit: I would like to realize this model:
  2. Hi all, Finally, I am rolling my second iteration of FAG 315 out of the paint shop. See: She is depicted as she was towards the end of her long career with the Fuerza Aerea Guatemalteca (Guatemalan Air Force), just prior to her sale into the US warbirds market. She is in the final scheme adopted by the FAG for Counter Insurgency (COIN) work. This was essentially US “Vietnam” but with the Tan replaced by Stone. From the large FAG Mustang fleet she was one of the final few. There are very few photographs available publicly of these machines in this scheme. This one shows
  3. Hi all, I am again happy to be rolling out a completed build and, again, it is the next in my line of F-51Ds. This time she is a machine that was operated by the Fuerza Aerea Uruguaya (the Uruguayan Air Force). She was previously 44-63530 (USAF) and was taken into the FAM (forerunner of the FAU) on the 20th July 1950 with only 15 hours 35 minutes airframe and engine time. She was assigned to the “red” group (there was red, white and blue) within the Grupo de Aviacion No.2 (Caza) (the 2nd fighter group) and was based at Carrasco, Uruguay. Her career was fairly un-eventful until the
  4. Hi all, Another pony heads out of stable for your delectation. She is, as you can see, adorned in the markings of the Fuerza Aerea Guatemalteca (the Guatemalan Air Force) as she was when operating in the mid-1950s. Specifically she is “FAG 315” (ex- 44-74902) and is reported in some records as being ex-Nicaraguan. She went on to be one of the last Mustangs to operate in Guatemala and was sold in the US in 1974 as N38227. She spent many, many years in a cosy barn on the ranch of Conny Edwards in Texas and eventually was the last of the 1974 purchase to hit the market. This was only
  5. Hi all, As the title suggests, this is a follow-on build of Bolivian F-51D Mustang “FAB-511”. My previous write-up as part of the earlier RFI tells her story. Now she is depicted later in life and in the colour scheme adopted up to the time of her retirement and eventual sale to Canada, to become C-GXUP. She went on to be a racer in the USA and eventually her sad demise came in 1996. I believe (if you believe some reports) that some of her parts went on to other machines. In these colours, albeit a bit ragged by this time, she returned to the North and looked as
  6. Hi all, This is my first ever Group Build. I was encouraged to do so by fellow BMers and naturally it follows a current build programme of Mustangs. For this build I will, again, be using the Tamiya kit. I know, it has some errors but these are few and the build is great. For me this is a bonus as I intersperse other less-perfect builds amongst them. It will be Out-of-the-Box except I will use Airfix flaps to get the dropped stance and aftermarket decals. The latter will be from Aztec. However, using the decals will be as far as I go as the colour profiles in the set are inaccurat
  7. Morning all! Here is my latest roll out. She is the third (of ten, currently) in the line of F-51s that I have either partially built, painted or planned. Apparent to everyone is that she is not a regular operational machine. She formed part of the “Los Cofres” display and demonstration team of the Fuerza Aerea Guatemalteca (Guatemalan Air Force) that flew from La Aurora Airfield in the mid-1950s. She was acquired in 1954 and history seems to record that she was lost at some point in Costa Rica. The build is based around the Tamiya kit, offering me relatively ea
  8. Hi all, Another rollout for me and this time I have returned to an area of interest that I exploited a while back with my F-80, T-33s, F-86Fs, TB-26B and others. That is Latin America. This time I have returned to a machine that caught my eye a number of years ago as she was unusual to me and reasonably colourful. The model – the first of a two-part RFI – shows F-51D “FAB-511” of the Fuerza Aerea Boliviana around the time of her delivery to South American. The photos I have (below) – and they are easily sourced on the web – are stated to be of her upon delivery. I question that giv
  9. Well, I made a start on this kit at my local IPMS club's meeting and build night yesterday. I got most of the interior painting done and glued the wings together. This should go pretty quickly. Before: After
  10. Well seeing as I didn't read the rules for this STGB my main build (a ramjet with whif markings) has been put on hold, I picked up this little gem from my local model shop at the weekend. We all now this great little kit from airfix but as per usual I'll open up with some pictures of the box and the plastic. And, there is the plastic still wrapped in it's bag. The level of detail on this little kit really is fantastic, for it's scale and price! Just such a shame about the sprue gates!!
  11. Evening, Have had this lurking on the shelf for a while with the aircraft pretty much complete but struggling to get the base finished off, well today gave me an opportunity to get it wrapped up. The kit is beautiful and I had no trouble whatsoever with this one, the rockets were a bit fiddly for my fat fingers but the rest of it was spot on. I wanted to try something a bit different and had an idea to portray the aircraft just airborne off a strip somewhere in SE Asia, with the main gear almost fully in the wheel wells. This bit was quite straight forward, but something was niggling away a
  12. Here is my F-51D Mustang in 1/72. Made with Italeri kit (lot of errors!), Eduard PE set and Pavla resin propeller. Numbers and "sharkmouth" made by myself. Aircraft serial 44-74384, code FF-384, 12th FBS, 18th FBG, Korea 1951/1952. I was suprised how hard is to find complete information about any Mustang from Korean War. Well known painting schemes are full of insinuations or errors (even FF-736 or FF-943!). Korean Mustangs had 3 different, optional propeller types, changing colors of wing tips and spinners, different "sharkmouth" types etc. That`s why I choose this rare painting scheme -
  13. Morning guys, yesterday at night i finished another mustang, built for the Mustang STGB here on BM. She was built and painted along with my Sweet Arlene, but i did not have time to finish her (i wanted to try some more dirty weathering for her), so she had to wait. Hope it did worth The kit is again well known Airfix P/F-51D, this time i used CMK wheels (i like how much their wheels "sits down", for the fully loaded plane it looks good to me), Quickboost seat and exhausts, stole the antena stick from Italeri P-51A (i m pretty sure i m not going to built that one, i m not THAT crazy.. and the
  14. Hi everyone, For show is this wee beasty which is part of the Mustang STGB. As usual I wanted to do something different for the GB and once I saw this I just knew I had to build it. This aircraft was build new by Cavalier Aircraft Corp in 1968 and was based off their Mustang II. Designed as a Close Air Support/Counter-Insurgency aircraft the original RR Merlin was replaced with a RR Dart 510 turboprop. Despite the radically improved performance and payload increase no sales were made. In 1970 the prototype was sold to Piper which spawned the Piper PA-48 Enforcer. The basis for this is Tami
  15. So I went a little crazy: I'm building two Airfix F-51Ds, one SAAF and one RAAF, using the AIMS UK & Commonwealth in Korea decals. First off is 361/"Miss Marounichi", formerly F-51D 44-74863, of the SAAF: Despite what the decal sheet says (red spinner and intake), it looks pretty conclusively to me like she was a yellow-nosed a/c. Apparently she had the uncuffed prop. Second up is A68-720, formerly P-51D-NT-25 44-84482. I don't have an image for her (help in that area welcome!), but apparently she had a Dallas hood. I'm unsure if she had a cuffed or uncuffed prop, it seems to var
  16. After a few things which have stopped me posting the completed thread last night, here's the finished F-51D Mustang from Airfix: Thanks for looking! WIP Thread here:
  17. Hi, After being bought this for Christmas along with a Spitfire F22 I decided to set aside some time for the building of this over the weekend/new year, I've primed this with a generic primer from the local pound shop which seems to do quite well. I've also ventured into Airbrushing for the first time with a "Expo AB652 Starter Airbrush kit" which was bought for me by the extended family which uses the can's of propellant which I can get a 750ml for £8, and did a small test with a scrap Spitfire mk1a I had in the drawer so have enclosed some photo's of my first attempt! First off the Unboxi
