    New Airfix P51

    Reading the information on the Airfix website I noticed these words: Produced under licensed. Boeing, Douglas, McDonnell Douglas, North American Aviation, A-4 Skyhawk, AH-64 Apache Longbow, B-17 Flying Fortress, B-25 Mitchell, C-47, DC-3, F-4 Phantom, P-51 Mustang their distinctive logos, product markings, and trade dress are all trademarks of The Boeing Company. What is the world coming to when Multi-nationals demand that kit manufacturers licence the Intellectual Property? How much of the price of the kit is the royalty payment to Boeing? Dunlop recently refused to allow Airfix to mould the word Dunlop on the tyres of the Blenheim. Comments, anyone?
  3. Hi folks, Hope the group build mods don't mind, but I'm going to keep all my builds in this thread, since my plan is to build three, possibly four aircraft of the 334 Fighter Squadron, Debden, the successor unit to the RAF eagle squadrons. photos to follow...
  4. The P51 Mustang is my second "fine structure" kit by imcth of Tokyo, my first being their Mitsubishi Zero. These are extraordinary kits, with the aircraft structure in photo-etched stainless steel and engine, undercarriage, weapons, etc in cast white metal. They are VERY different, present interesting challenges and build into superb works of art. I am writing a blog of my build on Tumblr. You can see it here: blog link removed
  5. Kit: Tamiya Scale: 1/48 Type: P-51b Mustang Extras used: decals, eduard photoetch Paints used: Tamiya, Mr metal and Vallejo Built this alongside my other one, slight difference with this one, mounted on a base, in flight, just after takeoff with wheels being retracted. And a motor added. Extensive chipping again on this one. First time painting a pilot, dont think i did too bad. Also another first for me is my first metal finish on a plane. I used Mr Metal, i found these ok and excellent to brush paint with too. I have since tried out alclads and much prefer these (apart from the smell!) motor running, its not as noisy as this in person...
  6. Kit: Tamiya Scale: 1/48 Type: P-51b Mustang Extras used: decals, eduard photoetch Paints used: Tamiya and Vallejo Another Tamiya mustang from me, i do love a Mustang, possibly my favorite fighter from ww2. An easy build, only problem i had was the chequered decal for the nose disintegrated so had to mask up and paint them, they turned out ok. HArd to see in the pics but you may be able to spot that the old d-day stripes have been painted over. I used a few different chipping techniques.
  7. Evening all, Having recently finished a 1/72 Airfix Mustang in post war RCAF colours.. http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234952128-airfix-172-mustang-new-tool/ I couldn't help thinking how nice it would look in 1/32nd, which is a bit daft because I've got a load of kits to make and I'm halfway through a 1/72nd Airfix Hurricane build, but despite promising myself I wouldn't - another being must have overcome me, because I still seem to have ordered the lovely, but pricey, Tamiya kit anyway.. In addition I also got the beautiful HGW seatbelt set (with resin dinghy pack), the Barracuda resin sidewalls, the Eduard interior photo etch and the Leading Edge RCAF decal set Whilst waiting for the kit to arrive I made a start on the HGW set which had already arrived... Thanks for looking, Guy
  8. Many countries used the Mustang after world war 2, even the USA. I bought an Airfix quick build P-51D but want to do it in a post-WW2 scheme with standard decals that I dont have to order or make. Please, any suggestions would be welcome. Btw I was thinking Navy (US or UK) and COIN aircraft (US or UK). Thanks
  9. As the title suggests did P51's that saw service in the RAF retain their original seat harnesses or were they retro fitted with the Sutton type harness? Thanks in advance Yours aye Iain
