  1. In the Czech Modelforum it's mentioned that after the 1/48th MiG-21, Spitfire and Bf.109 families, Eduard has as long term project the North American P-51 Mustang in the same scale. Wait and see. Source: http://www.modelforum.cz/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=68170&start=5865 V.P.
  2. Is there anything definitive on the colour of the sides (outer) of the P-51B Mustang radiator flap? The vent that lowers at the rear of the fuselage. Searching on the web and BM have drawn a blank. various possibilities occur to me; Same as the underside (neutral grey for the plane I'm modelling). Zinc Chromate, either straight (yellowish) or mixed (interior green). Silver, either NMF or doped. Cheers,
  3. Hi Folks, Probably a simple question for the Mustang experts out there (maybe @gingerbob?)... Should the top engine cowl have a panel line down it? It would be good to know before the paint goes on. Many thanks, Oops - I meant to post this in Mustang Chat, but got it wrong! Can you move it for me please Patrice? @TEMPESTMK5

Bronco Models is to release a new tool 1/48th North American P-51D-25-NA Mustang " Red 3" PLA Air Force - ref.

  5. Hi all, I'm appealling, I hope, to the many Mustang experts that frequent BM. My question is about the putties panel joints and did maintenance depots continue to maintain the putty after WW2, through the Cold War period (hence this forum)? My real interest is those aircraft that made their way to Latin countries. I made a statement in one post recently that post-WW2 this putty wasn't replaced after majot overhauls but the truth is that I have no evidence to support this. I hope that somebody knows :). Thanks in hope! Martin
  6. Meng is to release a " cement-free assembly" 1/48th North American P-51D Mustang kit - ref. LS-006 As original as a new tool 1/48th Bf.109, Spifire or Fw.190 kit...

  8. I really expected that someone else would have entered this one by now I bought this one just the other day specifically to fill the gap If I remember correctly after all so many years this is possibly the first Matchbox kit I built when Matchbox first got plastic models into the shops Back then I built it as Dooleybiird and I wanted to do it again, and I shall but not with the kit decals. A previous owner has cut the decal sheet, some Dooleybird decals are missing and although this sheet looks fine in the picture some of the markings have micro sized cracks through them I can save a few of the decals with LDF, but I'll buy the Model Alliance decal sheet which has Dooleybird on it; https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/ML72113 Some of the Matchbox parts are poor in design so I'll replace them with better parts from my parts files. The parts to change include the wheels and drop tanks [although I may leave those off and alter the wings to build it 'clean'] Back later; I have some Hawker Tempests, Sepecat Jaguars and a couple of other Matchbox kits to do yet
  9. With the Mustangs GB starting up, I realized I have two unfinished sitting on my shelf. They’re actually around 95% respectively 99% finished but somehow I have spent years not managing to get the last decals up and do the final grooming. There is even a thread: The unfinished ones are Swede’s Steed and Short Fuse Sallee. Let’s see if the peer pressure here can make me finally finish them.
  10. A 1/48th N.A. P-51D Mustang. More tomorrow. Source: https://www.facebook.com/officialairfix/posts/10154504386816271:0 Oh no. I would have preferred...

  11. Hello folks - now this: With all the buzz about that new P51 kit from eduard, I thought I’d pop this one from the stash and get this oldie but still a goodie made. After my last 2 builds being nmf, I thought I’d do one more - hopefully using the lessons learned and expanding my alclad chops a little further. Also going a scale bigger to 1/48 - more plastic making more fun I hope. It will be nice doing a larger model after so many 1/72s - detailing those smaller models can be hard on the eyes..! (Maybe there’s a part of me that wants this built so I can justify buying the eduard one!!! ) In spite of its age, this looks like a pretty sweet kit. I’ve got some aftermarket: A big sheet of pe, including interior, precut masks and some resin wheels - all from eduard. I’m planning on doing petie 2nd - the scheme from the box art: I’m a sucker for nmf and blue schemes so this suits me fine. This image will be my primary source - as you can see she’s a well weathered beast with lots of nice tonal variations on the blue nose and airframe- I’ll be looking to recreate that. I understand that this plane survived the war and still flys today - on her 3rd engine:) But mine will be a portrayal of her dirty grimy wartime years. Of course this means using the dreaded Tamiya decals - I did shop around for some aftermarket ones but the good ones all seem to be sold out - maybe because of that aforementioned kit release. Into the build! First job was sticking some pe onto the pilots seat: I went about adding some details to the radio boxes at the rear of the cockpit. I drilled some holes for the wires and glued them in - used different gauges of copper wire. I looked at a few references for the placement of these - which pointed out some big inaccuracies in the kit but not to worry. I made an oxygen line by wrapping some small wire around big wire... First time I’ve tried this and it came out okay I think. I attached some more pe to the side walls: That green is what eduard thinks is correct for usaf interior green. Maybe sometimes it was that colour but I’ll be using a different shade so this is getting painted over. The hose was installed - I used some crystal clear to create the plugs for this - not very successful but it will do... I had already primed the surface with some Tamiya fine so I was now ready for some paint. I mixed up some tamiya flat green and flat yellow - also some interior green and some Olive drab to get this shade - Then lightened it with more yellow to do some highlights. I used a lighter shade on the seat bulkhead as some references showed that this was a lighter shade of green. The black head rest area was painted with Tamiya rubber black - then dry brushed with a light grey colour. The back section was also painted with rubber black and dry brushed in the same fashion - I also hand painted the frame with the same interior green color as before. The floor of the cockpit was painted using different shades of brown and rust colours from Vallejo model colour - more of a nod to wood grain as opposed a full wood grain finish. This will be covered with chipping medium and then a dark grey to simulate the rubber floor. Some details on the radio boxes where painted.. And lastly a quick dry fit to see how I’m going: So that’s it for the first few hours work With the bigger scale I have to get used to a slower pace but I’m very much enjoying it so far. I’d be keen to hear from anyone who’s built this to see if there’s any issues to be aware of - but from what I can gather it’s supposed to be more or less hassle free. More to follow soon. Thanks for checking in. Cheers John

  14. With the application of the decals, a radio mast, and the finished spinner, P-51D Mustang “Twilight Tear” (named after the 1944 Racehorse of the Year) is complete!
  15. 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

  19. Hello All, It's been a long time - Sweet's 1/144 P-51B/C modified to a RAF recon Mustang. Thanks for looking. Ian
  20. 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.
  21. Hi all. Here is one of three Mustangs I have been working on in this WIP thread. Cheers Jimmy

  25. 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
