  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 75 Squadron RAAF CAC CA-17 Mk.20 Mustangs Post-War 1/72 & 1/48 Red Roo Models This provides two decal options for CAC CA-17 Mk 20 Mustangs used by 75 Squadron RAAF post WWII. Following WWII Service and disbandment on 1948 the squadron was re-formed in 1949 and operated the Mustang before converting to Meteors. GA-V was the mount of the squadron commander; Wing Commander Richard Cresswell. GA-B is an overall NMF aircraft with very little in the way of markings. Both of these aircraft were kept immaculately clean. Conclusion This is a great sheet if you fancy something different or antipodean for your Mustang, Highly Recommended. 1/72 1/48 Review sample courtesy of
  6. So far so good. Can't wait to give you more. Flickrhttps://www.flickr.com/gp/154999142@N05/E96N05
  7. Hi, Here is my finished Accurate Miniatures MK1-A Mustang, a model produced back in 1991 but stills has a lot of detail. I would like to note that when I bought the kit, it came with an aftermarket Allison Engine which although having a lot of detail, was a nightmare to cut out as the plastic was so thin. This is the recognisance fighter and so a gun camera and armed with 20mm cannons finished in D-Day stripes and has been one of my more enjoyable builds only taking two weeks to complete. This is also the first kit in a while where I haven't mucked up the canopy due to silly mistakes and made sure to invest in Swann and Morton blades which made it 10x easier. Although I always note this when I do a ready for inspection, I take photos on my smart phone but for some reason the best part of the kit it picks up is the dust rather than focusing the camera properly; hence why I have been put a blank sheet behind it to try and focus the camera more. Hope you enjoy! Ryan
  8. Edit: After completing this, I've continued building more Mustangs - rather than spamming the forum with several threads, I just keep using this. Another "return to the hobby thread". First some manners by presenting myself, since this is my first post in this forum. I'm from Sweden, stopped modelling when I became a teenager - now I am middle-aged (<-first admittance of said fact) and have a 5-year old son to whom I recently bought a model. We built it together and I think I enjoyed it even more than he did. He was hooked though, so I bought him another, one of the new Airfix Mustangs. But this time he didn't let me help him! Not a bit! My fingers were itching, so I bought one more for dad, which will be the subject of this thread The kit is the new P-51D from Airfix (box art below). It depicts a P51D-10-NA with serial number 44-14207, as flown by Lt Eugene James of 352nd FG, 328th FS. Code PE-E, nickname Rose Marie (James's girl?) AND Kelly Kid 2 on the opposite side (apparently some relative of the crew chief). Several images are available here: http://www.littlefriends.co.uk/gallery.php?Group=352 It's completely different hobby now, thanks to the advent of the internet and modern machining. So much information... almost overload. Last time I built a model I had access to exactly two books with colour profiles in the library. Decided to write this log in the hope I could get some feedback and to have a log to get back to - if not for anything else than as a reminder on what not to do I aim for historical accuracy, as I see models as little windows to the past, so any correction or criticism is appreciated. I've started already, assembled cockpit and fuselage. I built Airfix's blue-nosed mustang sometime in the 80s or 90s, but that was something different. The level of detail and fit of the pieces in this upgraded kit is fantastic. Anyhow I added some bits and pieces. Fuselage assembled - no gaps at all. Leaving the propeller until later probably makes for easier build and painting, but I feel something is amiss if it doesn't spin.

  10. Hello Ladies and Gents, So after a 20+ year hiatus from mutilating and butchering 1/72 plastic aircraft models, I've decided to pick up a knife and paint brush again to get through these winter evenings. This forum has been a trove of information and advice which I've quietly browsed for several years, as such I already owe many members thanks for sharing their wisdom though I haven't even started a kit yet. Seeing the vast range of kits that are available these days, combined with the abundance of after-market items and weathering/finishing techniques that have evolved over the last two decades has me excited but also a little intimidated about returning to the hobby...the leaps and bounds taken during my break has me questioning whether I even really know the basics anymore, let alone the advanced stuff, so fellow members can expect some bone-head questions in the near future. I've decided to take things slowly and learn as much as I can about each stage of the build process, so will be making a nuisance of myself on these forums over the next few months. I've decided that 1/48 is now my scale of choice. I'll stick to aircraft, but no particular theme...just whatever takes my fancy, an airframe I admire or have some connection with. My first two projects will be a Spitfire V, (one of Malta's so-called Blue Defenders) and a commonwealth P-51D Mustang. My third project is intended to be an F7F Tigercat Air Tanker, but I'm trying not to get ahead of myself. Right now I'm purchasing tools/equipment and going through the research stage. The two former kits will most likely be Tamiya products, though I'm aware they have some issues (the Sptifire wings will be annoying). The Tigercat, probably the AMT kit. Any advice offered regarding these products, or potential alternatives, will be graciously received. Though I do prefer a degree of anonymity online, I certainly look forward to getting invovled in this the community which appears to be very generous and supportive! Cheers Everybody Launchpad
  11. This is Airfix's new Mustang finished as the mount of S/L Witold Tokuciewski of 303 Sqn. It was originally going to be in a RNZAF scheme but the black & yellow chequerboards on the fuselage sides disintegrated & curled up so, in the words of Wile E Coyote, back to the old drawing board. In the end I used Kagero's Mustangs over Europe, part 1, I also used Eduard's Zoom set for the cockpit. The kit goes together well but looks a little odd when you open the box due to the clever way it is engineered. This is my first attempt at NMF, I used AK Interactive paints which performed well although the black base was a bit patchy - but that was probably me. Next NMF aircraft will be the Eduard Mirage III. Any comments or criticisms welcome as always. Thanks for looking. Pete
  12. Hi gents, I would like to share the progres on this great kit, cheers! Antonio

  14. Build a couple years ago, I was unpacking this from the trip back from the Nats, and thought I'd get a couple pics before putting it back in the display case. I have many happy memories of attending airshows with my father and the dancing yellow Mustang of Bob Hoover was always a highly anticipated. The Cavalier Mustang is a civilian-ized version of the North American P-51 Mustang. In 1957, Trans-Florida Aviation in Sarasota, Florida, (which was renamed Cavalier Aircraft Corporation in 1967) was formed with the objective of transforming the P-51 into a fast and powerful executive business aircraft. Cavalier Mustangs were rebuilt from the ground up, removing all unneeded military equipment and adding features like a second seat, cockpit soundproofing, improved cockpit ventilation, modern avionics, and a luggage storage bay. One of the most recognized is surely the Mustang flown by Robert 'Bob' Hoover. N51RH was purchased in 1971 to replace an earlier Mustang damaged by an exploding oxygen bottle.. Hoover and the yellow Mustang became famous for precision aerobatic displays though out the world. As a working aircraft, N51RH went through many changes and modifications throughout over twenty years of service. This model represents N51RH as it appeared in the mid 1970s. It all started with a gift from a friend (thereafter known as my project instigator friend) of a very nicely done decal sheet for the 70's era Hoover Mustang. Hoover had become one of my boyhood heroes with his precise and smooth demonstrations of aerobatics and many hours of my youth were spent at dozens of air shows watching Hoover and the famous yellow Mustang perform. I must admit to hording the decals for a number of years until my benefactor convinced me to get off my duff and get started. Oh yes, as long as I was building one kit I could build a copy just as easy since he had obtained a second set of Hoover's markings! What are friends for? The Korean War version of the venerable 1/48 Tamiya P-51D kit was modified into a Cavalier Mustang as it contained the uncuffed Hamilton Standard propeller and longer pointed spinner needed for the conversion. Changes to the cockpit started by replacing the kit parts with a Blackbox resin cockpit modified to civilian configuration by removing military armament panels and adding civilian instrumentation and radio panels. The fuselage fuel tank and radio were removed and the rear cockpit floor replaced. Pilot and passenger seats and cushions scratch built and seat belts/harnesses fabricated using foil from top of wine bottle. (A Zinfandel I believe). The canopy was replaced by spare part having a more bulged rear profile and green tinting added by airbrushing a mixture of Future with a drop of Tamiya clear green acrylic. Finish is a custom mix yellow Testers enamel built up in thin coats allowed to thoroughly dry between applications. A light wet sanding with 1200 paper removed small imperfections and the surface polished with fine automotive swirl remover. The decals were applied and after drying two coats of Future airbrushed at about 15 psi. After the future had dried another VERY light wet sanding with 1800 paper to smooth the surface was followed by polishing with the swirl remover. I remember N51RH having shiny polished paint, but as an aircraft that was flown regularly in aerobatic demonstrations, I also recall exhaust stains and oil on the Mustang's flanks until it was wiped down after the show. Air show aircraft worked for a living and I wanted to depict this so light weathering was applied. It just so happens my friend has two sets of markings for the Mustang racer 'Miss America' and an extra Mustang kit........... Oh yeah, we did pretty good at the IPMS Nationals!
  15. 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.

    NA-73 Mustang I, best options in 1/72nd

    Hi All, I have been researching recently about producing the said topic of a NA-73 Mustang for the RAF in 1/72. I found an article on Internet Modeler that goes into some detail about this guy had done it but done know if it's a recent article and their may be better ways of doing it. Here is my question for the wise ones. With what's available now and without breaking the bank, how would you produce this aircraft to an acceptable example and catch the 'key' features of a Mustang I. Stuart
  17. 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

  19. HI All! Just finished my latest build and made a timelapse video about it! This is the new tool kit from airfix - really thought there was a wealth of detail. I feel the RAF paint scheme makes this look like a different plane, it's not as glamorous as the USAAF version (all shiny). I think I did a good job overall, but had a bit of an issue with those yellow decals taking ages to conform to the wings... Let me know what you think! Thanks in advance

  23. North American P-51D Mustang 1:72 Airfix The North American P-51 Mustang is one of the most famous and easily-recognisable of Allied types to have served during the Second World War. It was originally designed to a British requirement for a low-altitude fighter, and because it was designed around the Alison V-1710 engine, it had limited performance at higher altitudes. This shortcoming was famously addressed by the marriage of North Americans airframe to the Rolls Royce Merlin aero engine. Once so equipped, the Mustang was able to take on Luftwaffe fighters on equal or better terms up to 15,000 feet. In common with later Spitfires, the D model of the Mustang employed a cut-down rear fuselage and a bubble canopy, giving pilots superb all-round vision. The outstanding feature of the aircraft was is range, which enabled Mustangs to escort bombers all the way to Berlin and back. This prompted the famous quote from Reichmarshal Herman Göring: "When I saw Mustangs over Berlin, I knew the jig was up." Airfixs Mustang has only been around for a few months, but in that time it has garnered a good reputation in terms of fit and accuracy. The kit is part of Airfixs series one range and as such as a fairly simple kit, made up of just fifty three parts spread across two sprues of grey plastic and a single small clear sprue. The mouldings are clean and crisp and moulded detail looks good. The panel lines look pretty fine to me, but some will no doubt find them a little too deep. In my opinion they arent too broad though, so treatment with primer would seem to be the way to go here. The cockpit is assembled on top of a large floor piece which also acts as the roof of the radiator tunnel. Onto this are added an instrument panel (with a decal for detail), a gun sight, control column and seat. Sidewalls and radio kit is moulded in place. The inner sides of the fuselage have some nice raised/recessed detail which helps to add a sense of realism to the cockpit. Overall impressions are very favourable, particularly for a kit in this scale and at this price point. If you want the airscrew to be moveable, you will have to assemble it before the fuselage halves have been joined. This will make it a bit of a nuisance to paint though, so I would recommend adding it later and fixing it in place. Whichever route you choose, once the fuselage halves are joined then you can add the wing. The lower wing is moulded as a single span, which will help you achieve the correct dihedral. The main gear bays are boxed in and feature some convincing structural details. The tail planes are moulded as solid pieces, but the rudder is a separate part, so you can finish it in a deflected position if you so desire. There are separate flaps too, which is a bonus. The Finishing details show that Airfix has put some care and attention into the design of this kit. The mouth of the radiator inlet is moulded as a separate part, saving you the trouble of cleaning up a visible seam. The cooling air exhaust is also a separate part and can be posed in either open or closed position. The undercarriage doors are detailed on the inside and the landing gear itself is also very nice. The tyres have a cross-cut tread and subtle flat spots moulded in place. Two drop tanks are provided to hang under the wings. Two canopies are provided, but only the bulged version is used for the decal option supplied with this kit. The frame of the rear canopy is a separate part too, and of course the canopy can be posed in open or closed position. As this is a series 1 kit, just one scheme is provided on the decal sheet - the aircraft flown by First Lieutenant Spurgeon Ellington, Tuskegee Airmen, 100th Fighter Squadron, Ramitelli, Italy, December 1944. The decal sheet is printed by Cartograf and includes a full range of stencils. Conclusion Whilst the subject is one that has hardly been ignored by model manufacturers, this is a neat little kit and Im very glad that Airfix took the decision to release it. The level of detail is surprisingly good for the scale and price, and it looks as though this should build up into an excellent model. Recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  24. Way back in October of last year I entered the Mustang Single Type Group Building with two Airfix F-51Ds in 1/72. Both aircraft were to be RNZAF/TAF Mustangs from the 1950s. One based from my home city (Auckland) the second from the home of my father's family (Wellington). I managed to finish the first aircraft during the group build, the Auckland based aircraft. I've been plodding along with my Wellington based aircraft ever since and am happy to share it with you all here today. Natural metal is Alclad Airframe Aluminimum over Humbrol gloss black. The level of shine is captured by the underside photo. The wings were filled in, sanded, and painted with decanted Tamiya AS-12. Decals from Ventura. Canopy is Squadron/Falcon and was intended for the Hasegawa kit, which meant it needed a bit of surgery to fit. Very happy with the result.
  25. 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 &#x27;Old Crow&#x27; P-51D Mustang 357th FG by Ryan Dorling ( Ryan Dorling Photography, Reheat Ph, on Flickr 1/72 &#x27;Old Crow&#x27; P-51D Mustang 357th FG by Ryan Dorling ( Ryan Dorling Photography, Reheat Ph, on Flickr 1/72 &#x27;Old Crow&#x27; P-51D Mustang 357th FG by Ryan Dorling ( Ryan Dorling Photography, Reheat Ph, on Flickr Kind Regards Ryan
