  1. Brengun has just released a 1/72nd North American P-51 Mustang Mk.I kit - ref. BRP72031 Source: http://www.brengun.cz/e-shop/1-72-plastic-kits-28/mustang-i-1459 V.P.
  2. North American P-51D-5 Instrument panel Eduard LOOK 1:32 Not long ago Eduard introduced a new concept in modelling accessories the LOOK range. Each set contains a completely finished instrument panel, which includes all the instruments, levers and instrument glass on a pre-painted panel, this goes for the lower central panel and the switch panel beneath that. This set is designed for the Revell P-51 and is for the D-5 version, the earlier D version is also available. The quality is excellent and is a direct replacement of the kit part. The set also comes with etched steel seatbelts which are also pre-painted and when folded really look the part with the separate clasps and fixings.. Conclusion This new series is a great resource for those of us who are unable to replicate all the markings on a panel in one easy solution. My only concern is if a model was to be put into a competition without the modeller declaring they have used a LOOK set, as, to me, it’s a form of cheating. Review sample courtesy of

  4. Hi, This model was finished last year but I haven't taken the time to share the pictures with you. The Airfix kit is a wonder to build. The only comment I may have is for the canopy: I don't really like the way Airfix proposes it on two parts (transparency + base). I also encountered some issue with the paint. I applied Alclad 2 paints on a Tamiya gray primer and had the unpleasant surprise to see the paint cracking. Twice... . Third try was with Tamiya Flat Black. No issue then. If anybody has had the same experience, your comments will be welcome. Decals are from Microscale. Seatbelts from Eduards. Gunsight from Quickboost. Hope you like it. Cheers, Antoine

  6. I don't usually share work I do for others but I'm kinda proud of this one. I had to beat the RS kit into submission with a good amount of elbow grease and super glue. Decals were very nice though.

  9. Watching the work in progress by Olivier de St Raph on the Missouri Aramada, I was compelled to start working on the Blue nosed P51-D from Airfix. The high quality work and information in that thread kept my enthusiasm going long enough to actually finish the kit. Starting with the interior; Left and right drop tanks don't make sense, so the right gas cap was filled and re-scribe d on the left. The panel lines on the wing were filled and the wheel wells painted. First time using a rivet tool also the elevator counter-balance was etched. Charlie in the foreground as Isis sees all. Enough you say? On with the show. Vallejo White Aluminum for the body and Dull Aluminum for the wings. Unfortunately the Testors flat clear lacquer reacted with the floor polish used for the transfers causing fine cracks and an instant war-weary look. Rivets on the flaps are an absolute must. Thanks for looking. Garry c

  11. Hi, this is my recent build, Airfix 1/72 P-51D Mustang, painted with Alclad II Polished Aluminum and weathered with Tamiya's weather sets. Decals from Blue Diamond Decals. Thank you for looking.
  12. 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

    P-51 landing gear

    Hi, all. I'm working on a Tamiya Mustang in 1/72, another RNZAF/TAF example. On my last build of the Airfix kit I dropped the flaps, the landing gear doors, and the radiator flap. The Tamiya kit is moulded with the flaps up and they can't be dropped without surgery. I'm wondering what to do with the gear doors. Tamiya tell you to model the aircraft with the gear doors down and the radiator flap open. Most images of the P-51 online show the aircraft with the gear doors down, radiator flap open, and the flaps down. I've come across a few images of the Mustangs with the flaps up and the gear doors up. E.g.: There's a lot of variation out there and I was wondering if Britmodeller could be my source of truth. Is there a normal gear door arrangement for a Mustang with its flaps up? Does Tamiya have their instructions wrong by suggesting gear doors down, but flaps raised?
  15. Hello! This is a realy early of my airbrushed kits, it was made back in 2007. Next to it, You can see an even more older one which was used for tests in the meanwhile. The first time when I used resin upgrade and mark softer. Mr. Pilot from Airfix RAF personel.

    P-51D Warhorse

    Hello all i built this as an attempt to get used to 1/72nd scale i am placing it here as it is about 90% complete. I replaced the barrels with hollow micro brass tubing. Which is itself a test of patience. The Star & Bars are kit decals the serial is kit decal. But the codes are from Woodland Scenics Railroad lettering. I think they work very well. However i've been laughed at by some here at Britmodeller for suggesting these. I'll let you decide whether they look good ? Correct ? Or Bad ? It still needs resin exhausts and some weathering. It is also the first model in a pet project that will eventually incorporate 10 more P-51's, 4 P-47's, and 1 P-38 an airfield diorama with a tower and the associated ground equipment. The full size diorama will be built last. Any how heres the Mustang as it sits today. It represents a D model of the 4th Fighter Group. And i hope you like it. Oh and for those of you curious the invasion stripes were handpainted the Aluminum was Tamiya Rattlecan and the Red & Blue are Vallejo. The Red is standard Vallejo & the Blue MA Mediterranean blue and is Airbrushed. The color was pretty close to the colors i could find online. I hope every one likes this. The eagle eyed among you may spot my glaring goof up on this plane.
  17. Hi All, I have just completed an Academy 1/72 scale P-51D, I have only just started making models so this is one of my first serious attempts so had help from my dad and enjoyed making it, I wanted to make it 'Old Crow' as I'm an aviation graphics artist and managed to get a couple of my pieces signed by Bud Anderson himself, so this will go along side them in my room. Comments and criticism welcome always looking to improve I have got another Academy P-51B which I will make into Berlin Express and also an Airfix 1/72 scale P-51D which I'm looking at making into 'Tall in the Saddle'. 1/72 'Old Crow' P-51D Mustang 357th FG by Ryan Dorling ( Ryan Dorling Photography, Reheat Ph, on Flickr 1/72 'Old Crow' P-51D Mustang 357th FG by Ryan Dorling ( Ryan Dorling Photography, Reheat Ph, on Flickr 1/72 'Old Crow' P-51D Mustang 357th FG by Ryan Dorling ( Ryan Dorling Photography, Reheat Ph, on Flickr Kind Regards Ryan

  21. Hello everybody, here is my try at Hasegawa P-51C. Built almost OOB, with addition of Quickboost exhausts. Painted with Gunze Aluminium and Red, wash is Tamiya, and exhaust stains and dirt a combination of Tamiya smoke and Tamiya D weathering set. Decals are combination of Revell (national insignia, yellow bands and stencils) and Tally Ho. Tally Ho decals acted terribly, resisting every attempt to get them from backing paper. Thanks for looking!
  22. With only a few days left until the GB is over, I'm going to attempt an extremely ambitious triple Mustang build taking advantage of the fact that both the Tamiya and the Academy Mustangs are extremely good 'shake and bake' kits that should not cause me much trouble. Here's a summary of the builds and (possible problems) 1) Academy P-51B "Bonnie B II". Taken from the Xtradecal D-Day sheet. Alas, this particular P-51B had the fin fillets which the "Old Crow" boxing does not have. I ordered the P-51C kit that does but has not yet arrived. That still does not stop me from building up everything except the separate tail section. 2) Tamiya P-51D "Detroit Miss". Have always wanted to build this one so here's the chance. 3) Tamiya P-51D "Jumpin' Jacques". I have some old Hasegawa decals but I'm slightly terrified of how thick they'll look on natural metal. I ordered some Mr Setter/Softer from Japan a few weeks ago but waiting for that to arrive. If it does not arrive by early Saturday I will replace it with something else. The "JJ" will be armed with two bombs, rather than drop tanks, hence why I chose the F-51 kit.
  23. Good afternoon, just got back from a week of holidays in Paris. Beautiful weather, by the way! And now, time to start with the Mustang. It's the famous kit from Revell, this time with the Malcom hood and decals for two RAF versions in the Dark sea grey/Ocean grey/Dark green scheme. It should be a rather quick build, which I will do along the Airfix Tiffie. They are both the same colours, so I will improve efficiency in painting two aircrafts with one mix of colours. So, don't be alarmed if you spot some parts which don't belong to a Mustang! Just some minor questions, the interiour of the mustang was the usual RAF interior green/grey, correct? Alex
  24. Hi all, Since I've finished a build in the MTO GB, I though I could start another. And this time it will be this Sprues are full of flash The kit comes with resin wheel replacements for the dreary looking ones on the sprues Also included are some PE for the interior (mostly). Though I have used some of it on another kit already... And the first problem (already?) I'm not too surprised about the broken canopy (seeing the condition of the box), though I am bummed out. I do have another Smer P-51 kit that contains an intact canopy, but I want to build two P-51's. One USAAF one, from the kit decals, and an RAF one. I'll see if I can get a replacement canopy, or see what it would looks like if I glue this one. Wish me luck. Cheers Jimmy
