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.

Hello does anyone know if late 30’s USAAC NMF aircraft have a protective anti-corrosion coat ? Im building this down in the Maritime patrol build.

Wouldn't they need some sort of corrosion control, since they are obviously unpainted ? Any help is very much appreciated. Thank you in advance. Dennis
