  4. A small project in order to recharge the mojo. This P-51D Mustang in 1/72 was done using an old tool Airfix kit. Basically as a kit it is ok, fit was ok apart from a small issue with the fuselage that was taken care of by some filler. The kit was sprayed with the humbrol metalcote range, in order to create various shades of aluminium It was finished off with a satin coat and Starship Filth from Oilbrushers. The figures where all brush painted and weathered with oil Finally the Marston Mat, was created by printing a template, holing it, one by one and then finished off with Humbrol MetalCote Polished steel Hope you enjoy....
  5. Revell is to release in 2017-2018 a new tool 1/32nd North American P-51D Mustang kit - ref. 03944 Source: http://www.kitreviewsonline.de/revell-neuheiten-fuer-das-jahr-2017/ V.P.
  6. Building the Revell P-51D-5NA in 1/32 Scale Build Guide Series No.4 KLP Publishing Online publishing is now starting to find its way into the modelling community. KLP Publishing is one of the new online publishers, specialising in eBooks for the scale aircraft modelling community. Their debut title Building Brick’s Sabre in 1/32 Scale: A Scale Tribute to K.J. "Brick" Bricknell reviewed here has proved to be a success. They have since done titles on the Bird Dog, Spitfire XIVe, AEG G.IV Late, FW 189, and He 219. Their latest title tackles building Revell's new tool 132 P-51D. This was done by modeller Jan Gabauer. As well as the normal build it brings us a review of the kit and art work by Juanita Franzi. Also of use to the modeller is appendices covering Aftermarket, and reference work available for the kit. Conclusion This is the type of publication that the new digital format is made for. If you want a book for a specific build having a digital publication saves you space on your bookshelves. This is clearly a book written by modellers for modellers. The text is clear and concise and the great selection of crisp pictures is welcome. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  7. I’ve always loved the P-51D Mustang! This one is the diminutive 1/144 scale bird from Minicraft. This 2018 release is actually a reissue of the 1974 Crown kit, which has been sold variously over the years by Revell, Academy, Trumpeter, Mini Hobby Models, and now Minicraft Models. This little beauty has certainly been around! Minicraft has added some value, though, with a new clear display stand, a pre-painted canopy, and some excellent Cartograf decals. The small size, low parts count, and pre-painted canopy will make this a fast build.
  8. This is my entry. I thought about Burma Banshee P40 but decided to safe it for a P-40 STGB. So it will be stang. ~Hope it could be as good as Warhawk 8-) And some work I've done yesterday evening....
  9. Hello! I saw this photo. Airfield Nappa, California, 1947. Tired Mustang from Dallas. And I decided to make a model for this photo. I used a set of ICM kit with modifications. Hope you enjoy looking at.
  10. Bubbletop Mustangs (ED-48119, ED-72119) 1:48 & 1:72 Euro Decals by Fantasy Printshop Airfix are bringing us new Mustangs in 1/48 & 1/72, however there are no shortages of them from other manufacturers. Therefore it's only fitting that we should get some newa ftermarket decals for them These sets from Euro Decals are printed by Fantasy Printshop, and arrive in A5 ziplok bags, with a set of side profiles on the front, instructions in the middle, and the decals on the rear, so they can be inspected through the protective sheet of thin paper. Sheet shown is 1/72, the 1/48 is the same layout just larger. Inside are four-way profiles of each of the six decal option, plus a legend with suggested colours in BS & FS numbers, Humbrol, Xtracolour, Xtracrylix, and LifeColor shades, with a page of general text about the aircraft on the back page. The options from the sheet are as follows: Mustang IV KH673 South African Air Force, Italy 1945. F-15D Republic Of Korea Air Force, Chinhae Air Base, 1950 Mustang IV, 3 (Christchurch) Sqn RNZAF Territorial Air Force, late 1940s. P-51D 44-11222 "Jolie Helene" 368th FS, 359 FG, USAAF, East Wretham, 1945 J-26 Mustang 26115 F.4 Swedish Air Force, 1951 F-51D A68-56. 86 Sqn Royal Australian Air Force Bohle River Airfield 1945 The sheets provide all the national markings as well for each option. Registration, sharpness and colour density are all good, with a thin gloss carrier film cut close to the printed areas. Recommended for your next Mustang build of you like a little something different to the kit options. 1:48 1:72 Review sample courtesy of
  11. P-51D-20 & CAC Mustang Upgrade set & Un-cuffed Props 1/48 Red Roo Models The upgrade set (48178) is designed for Airfix kit though there is no reason it should not fit others. This provides parts for the IFF system and rocket rails. One of the main benefits of this set is the research and information about the differences in these aircraft and how to correct them. The picture used above is for illustration only. The stubs for the rockets are in cast metal which the modeller will need to trim and clean up. There is also a new radio in resin and some wire. RAAF Mustangs deployed to Korea used both the British 60Lb rockets and the American 5" HVAR ones. The propeller set (48123) gives us 4 new un-cuffed Aeroproducts blades used by the CAC Mustang and the P-51K. Some kits may need the modeller to make adjustments to the spinner holes to fir these blades correctly. Conclusion These are some interesting sets from Red Roo. Highly Recommended for an accurate Aussie Mustang. Update Set Prop Blades Review samples courtesy of

  13. Hi gents, I would like to share the progres on this great kit, cheers! Antonio
  14. A true classic, Tamiya's 1:48 Mustang B. I used the kit decals and sunk them into hot water, so they could soften up and sink into the panel lines. Painted with Revell acrylics, the olive drab is Revell 66 Olive Grey.
  15. Hey guys, pretty long long time since i was making wip build here on BM - finaly i might have a bit more time, so i m happy to be back A lot of things changed, most of it for good I have got married this summer, so you can imagine, siting by the work bench for whole evening is not anymore an option Anyway, when i saw this GB i was thinking about building the Tamiya 1/72 or 1/48 kit.. Then Meng and Airfix announced new 1/48s and i know Eduard is going to release their 1/48 D in not so far future too.. sooo.. i was thinking what to do.. then saw this kit in a sale.. well, long storry short, here i m with the amazing Tamiya 1/32 Mustang And i would like to begin with a little bit of begging If anyone has some good references for Korean Mustangs, mainly about the 45th TRS "Polka dot squadron" and their RF-51D, it would be great! I would need everything - from cockpit colour scheme, wheel wells colours, camouflage details.. If there are some aftermarket decals/masks and such.. All i know from my previous F-51D build is, the Korean mustangs had usualy cockpits repainted in black, wheel wells along with whole airframe (so not only wings but fuselage too) repainted by silver laquer. But that is quite all i know Another option could be some pacific theatre Mustang (as there are decals for it ) or some OD top side mustang, if i got some decals.. Well, thats it for now, i have a bit of free time so hurry up !
  16. So, I have been away for a month or so on business and whilst I was away I got a little self indulgent present delivered After finishing my previous model I decided to challenge myself with a NMF finish and so got the 1:32 Tamiya P51-D Mustang with which to have a go. As I am still a relative newbie I am doing this OOTB..........baby steps....NMF is my next goal.........maybe scratching will come later. I have never attempted NMF before, have purchased some Alclad II black gloss primer along with airframe aluminium and dull aluminium to use on select panels as it seems people like to break up the panels to make it look more realistic.....we'll see how it goes. Got an old Nimrod model that I intend to use as a paint mule and see how easy (or not) it is to get the desired effect. If all else fails I can always go back to the Tamiya rattle cans. So, having had a week or so of very intermittent bench time I have the pit done, still needs to be weathered but I'm reasonably happy with it so far. Also got the engine done and just about ready to join the fuse halves together. Model has gone together well so far, no fit issues so hoping this trend continues as I have had very few fit issues with Tamiya (except those self imposed by not looking at the instructions properly!) So here is how she stands now..........as always, comments and critique most welcome.
  17. Barracuda Studios is to re-release a 1:48 P-51D decal sheet with markings for five aircraft: 1) P-51D-20-NA "Double Trouble Two," 353rd Fighter Group, 352nd Fighter Squadron, 8th Air Force Flown by Lt. Colonel “Wild” Bill Bailey. 2) P-51D-15-NA Mustang “The Millie G,” 55th Fighter Group, 343rd Fighter Squadron, 8th Air Force Flown by Major Edward Giller. 3) P-51D-15-NA Mustang “Amorous Len III,” 357th Fighter Group, 363rd Fighter Squadron, 8th Air Force Flown by Captain Reager. Yoxford Airfield, England, 1944-45. This fictional airplane can be easily adapted by the clever modeler to represent another well known aircraft. 4) P-51D-5-NA Mustang “Lou IV," 361st Fighter Group, 375th Fighter Squadron, 8th Air Force Flown by Lt. Col. Thomas Christian. 5) P-51D-15-NA Mustang “Alabama Rammer Jammer” 353rd Fighter Group, 352nd Fighter Squadron, 8th Air Force Flown by Lt. Arthur Cundy. According to www.1999.co.jp/eng/, the decal sheet is to be released in January 2019, but it's been on preorder since November 22. Wanting to get my hands on the markings for "Amorous Len III," I went and preordered (first time in my life) the decal sheet from Barracuda Studios website for 11.95$ plus 8$ for shipping. Recommended kits are the Hasegawa and Tamiya P-51Ds in 1:48.

  18. A model I´ve been wanting to build for quite some time, Yeager´s last Mustang. This was my second Mustang, but my first one painted in an overall natural metal finish. It´s the Italeri rebox of the Hasegawa 1:48 P-51D. The model was first coated with white, and then the metallic colour was brushpainted over it, so it could have a nice grip on the surface. Many thanks to @stevehnz, @Giorgio N and Scott van Aken from Modeling Madness for their help regarding the Repliscale decals. They were an absolute joy to work with, being thin but not fragile, and sticking permanently once I pressed firmly over them with a kitchen roll. The only exception were the checkerboards, which were too big and had to be painted. I also had to add a spreader sprue just in front of the cockpit, otherwise there would be a gap between the wings and the fuselage.
  19. Hi all I've just been looking at Wg Cdr M L Donnet's Mustang in "RAF Mustang and Thunderbolt Aces" I cannot find supporting photos of it anywhere else. How big would his personalised fueslarge recognition letters have been and can I find them on a 1/72 decal sheet? What colour is the spinner bose? Book gives dark blue. Black on some sites showing artists' impressions. If anyone can give me a link to photos of KM121, I shall be very grateful Cheers M.M.
  20. Hi all. Here is one of three Mustangs I have been working on in this WIP thread. Cheers Jimmy
  21. Hi all. Here is one of the Mustangs I have been working on in this WIP thread. Cheers Jimmy
  22. Hi all. My previous 9 builds has all been some sort of camo scheme, so it's time for a bare metal subject. And since I always have room for another Mustang, that's what I'll do. However I couldn't decide which Mustang to do for my next build, so I'll just do them all! I have to warn you, this isn't going to be a very fast build as I have few other non-modelling related things on my plate at the moment. Ok, so here's what I've got I also have some aftermarket and spare decals Microscale and spare decals from the Italeri F-51D kit and of course, the decals that comes with these kits Academy usually has superb quality decals - just kidding Luckily these looks printed okay. I have academy sheets where the red circle in the RAF roundel isn't anywhere near the centre And the Airfix decals. Looks perfect as usual So it seems I still have some choices to make. Here's some photographs of the possible subjects The Airfix F-51D. The OOB option looks really great. But I also have this F-51 option from the Microscale sheet Pretty sure I'll go for the OOB option As for the P-51D's, I haven't built the OOB option yet. I don't think it's the prettiest Mustang scheme ever, but a blue nosed Mustang would bring some diversity to my Mustang collection... But, I have this option from the Microscale sheet I think I'll go for "Jan". I also the the "wildcard" option of going for a RAF Mustang Some camo might help break all the silver from the bare metal Mustangs in my production line. Hmmm, choices.... Moving to the P-51C Mustang. The Academy kit gives 3 options. I won't go for the Chinese one, so that leaves two viable options Wow! Isn't she a beaut!? The 530th FS option (top of the 3) doesn't look bad, but the 5th FS (yellow tail) just looks so racy. There's no choice here. To make it a little more interesting, I also have these Unfortunately not enough for all 3 kits, so yet more decisions. Looks like deciding to build all 3 Mustangs didn't make for any easier choices.... Well that's it for now. Next I'll share the mandatory sprue shots. Cheers Jimmy
  23. Hello everyone. Here's my Academy P-51-2NA (F-6A) Mustang in 1:72 which I built back in 2007. It represents 41-37322 "Mah Sweet Eva Lee", flown by Lt N F Bush, 154th OS, 68th OG, USAAF, North Africa, Spring 1943. Photo-reconnaisssance fighter variant of the Mustang. It was completely painted by brush with only the matt varnish being airbrushed. Before finishing the kit I damaged the radio wire and had to fix it that is why it's a bit slack. Thanks for looking and all comments are welcome. Miguel
  24. 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.
  25. Hi all. I finished this one over the weekend. Although getting on a bit the Tamiya Mustang is still a great model to build. The only thing I don't like about the kit is the separate canopy glass and lower canopy frame. A false start with Alclad paints saw it stripped and then hit with trusty Tamiya rattle can silver. The other metals shades are Alclad. This is the 1/48 Tamiya P-51D Mustang with Lifelike Decals, Eduard fabric seatbelt and Barracuda oval tread wheels and tires. Built as 44-151103 flown by Col. Dick Rowland, CO 348 FG Luzon, Phillipines, early 1945. Hope you like it. Mick
