  1. P-51D Mustang Canopy Set for Revell Kit. 1:32 AeroCraft Models There was little doubt that once the new Revell 1.32 P-51D is a great kit, however one of the areas that lets it down is the overly thick canopy. Ali has worked on this with a new resin canopy. This new canopy is very thin for a resin one, and this reviewer at first thought it was vac form. The canopy is thin and as distortion free as it can be while still keeping all the lines needed for masking. Indeed for masking internal support will be a must. The caopy shown here is as it comes and the clarity is good, but will no doubt be improved with a light polish, and or dip in your solution of choice. Review samples courtesy of
  2. Last November, I got to go on the trip of a lifetime: a trip to England with @Procopius and @Navy Bird, hosted by @CedB himself. Recent world events have only painted memories of that trip in an even more magical light. While at the Telford show, @rob85 gave me this: Rob replaced the sprues inside the Revell 'Cookie' box with Airfix, what a guy! I built this kit as my return to modelling after a much too long hiatus in the recently completed Mustang STGB, here. This past weekend, I found my light box and took some pics of my latest builds, including 'Cookie'. I just noticed that one of the prop blades got bent during a recent move, oh well. Until next time Rob!
  3. Ok, time to start up the builds and join the group build. Funny is that today I've found the last missing kit in my P-51D stach. I've got the Forces of Valor"s P-51D kit. Together with my Airfix, Tamiya and Hasegawa P-51D kits I have som nice choises to do. I also have some decal"s to choose. Hopefully I end up with one built kit before end date! Cheers / André
  4. Started a couple of weeks ago building my Favourite Xmas gift, Eduard Royal Class P-51D. Like you probably know this Edition always comes with 2 complete kits, and this one also spares to build a third if you have the wings and elevators available in your stash. So it’s also a dual build, the goal is to complete both a D-5 and a later D model (with fin) at the same time.
  5. Eye Catcher Mustangs I & II 48005, 72005 & 48006, 72006 1:48 & 1:72 TG Decals With all the new Mustang kits popping up hither and yon, TG Decals have created these new decal sheets for the modeller that likes to go far from the madding crowd when it comes to country and finishing options. With these sets you can build a number of schemes from Guatemala and the Dominican Republic from their heyday with the F-51D as it was labelled during the 50s and 60s. The Pursuit nomenclature became Fighter post WWII, and although we still call them P-51s, that was what they were at the time, so there! There are two sets in each scale, and all arrive in the same style packaging in the form of a resealable clear foil bag with a translucent white header, and the instructions, decal sheet(s) and masks safely in the middle of the folded instructions. The number of sheets varies between the sets and scales whilst providing the same markings for the two scales. The masks used are pre-cut translucent greyish vinyl, with instructions on how to apply and spray the various markings that are unsuitable for decals and best painted on the airframe. There are lots of reasons why this option was used, with the main one being that you don’t have to get the decals to settle down on substantial compound curves, particularly around the nose cowling panels. it also permits you to use them on many manufacturer's models, as the cowlings may be slightly differently sized so the masks can be adjusted. Eye Catcher Mustangs I (48005 & 72005) This set covers six airframes, three each from the aerobatic team PIRATAS and in-service machines at the same airfield later in the 50s. The Piratas aircraft all have a stepped band of red, white and blue on their noses that you will need to mask and paint yourself, but for the difficult leading edge “go-faster” flashes, there are masks to help you get the shape correct. Two of the three in-service airframes have a stylised red lightning bolt under their anti-glare panels, which is also supplied as masks for you to paint yourself. The rest of the markings are decals, with colours called out in Model Master, Humbrol, Tamiya, Gunze Sangyo and Vallejo codes as well as swatches for colour matching. From the sheet you can decal the following: F-51D 318 circa 1958, Base Aérea La Aurora, Guatemala City F-51D 336 circa 1959, Base Aérea La Aurora, Guatemala City F-51D 354 circa 1967, Base Aérea La Aurora, Guatemala City F-51D 342 Aerobatic team “Piratas” circa 1956, Base Aérea La Aurora, Guatemala City F-51D 342 Aerobatic team “Piratas” circa 1958, Base Aérea La Aurora, Guatemala City F-51D 321 Aerobatic team “Piratas” circa 1957, Base Aérea La Aurora, Guatemala City 1:48 1:72 Eye Catcher Mustangs II (48006 & 72006) Covering another three more airframes, these are Fuerza Aerea Dominicana aircraft, with their eye-catching (see?) roundels, tail flashes and shark-mouths under the nose. Again the set comprises decals with a sheet of vinyl masks to paint the nose area “face” behind the shark mouth with the various colours used on these airframes. The rest of the markings are decals, with colours called out in Model Master, Humbrol, Tamiya, Gunze Sangyo and Vallejo codes as well as swatches for colour matching. From the sheet you can decal: F-51D Fuerza Aerea Dominicana, “Ramfis” squadron, circa 1954 F-51D Fuerza Aerea Dominicana, “Ramfis” squadron, circa 1960 F-51D Fuerza Aerea Dominicana, “Ramfis” squadron, circa 1960 1:48 1:72 Conclusion These are certainly unusual mustangs, and are most definitely eye-catchers with their bright colours and polished skins. They will really bring your Mustang to life, and get people wondering where they’re from. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of [img= https://www.britmodeller.com/reviews/tgdecals/logo.gif]
  6. With only 18 days left, I'm pushing my luck here . But I'd really like to get an Airfix P-51D built. It looks lovely and there have already been some great builds on this STGB builds using it. So, opening shots... Nice Airfix box art; Simple sprues; Everything looks nice and crisp, good panel lines, nice detail and flaps which drop! I plan a few AM enhancements, and I'll need to make (or source) some unshrouded exhausts. Decals/Markings; These decals must have been in the spares box for 20+ years... The kill markings are too large and not enough kills. But I can use these to make the right ones (I hope!) And, if I'm lucky, it should end up looking something like this: This was Capt Clarence 'Bud' Anderson's P-51D-10-NA 44-14450, 363rd, 357FG, at Leiston in the winter of 1944/45 with all his kill markings (he ended with 16.5 kills). It had just had its Olive Drab paint striped off, so would have been fairly clean. The wheels were originally white walled (like his P-51B) but time and wear seems to have worn most of it off. Cheers,
  7. I need a bit of help with the depiction of the name on Bud Anderson's P-51D 'Old Crow'. Was the name - and the engine cowling - repainted when the plane was changed from camouflage finish to bare metal? These are the only photos I've found in books and the web; This has already been discussed on the P-51 Mustang STGB IV Chat page. But due to the problems with the only low-res photo of the camouflaged plane, no conclusion could be made. @gingerbob and @Toryu have been very helpful, and Michael provided me some useful background on the plane's history; The side view above is also presented in Merle Olmsted's 'The Yoxford Boys' with the following caption: "... It was received at the 8th Air Force depot at Wharton in the first week of September, 1944, just off the freighter from Newark N.J. It would have arrived at Leiston a week or two later, where it was apparently immediately painted in RAF green and Anderson flew it like that until winter came on, when his crew stripped it back to bare metal. It was eventually scrapped in November, 1945." When the paint was quickly removed in late 44/early 45, it would make sense that they'd have left the name. Why bother stripping the paint and the name? And from what I've read it was done in a hurry overnight. But the individual characters of the name look 'fatter' on the camouflaged plane, and the SuperScale decals I've just got provide two versions stipulating to use the 'slimmer' one on the NMF plane. Photos can be deceptive, and although the name looks 'fatter' on the camou photo, this may not necessarily be the case. Its very low resolution and the white of the name may have 'spread' due to the size of the pixels. And exposure and printing can make a difference to how things look in photos. Does anyone have access to a better photo? Any thoughts or advice gratefully received. I have one week left to complete it! Cheers,
  8. Here we go - I have the green light to inflict the original tool Airfix P-51D 'Fool's Paradise IV' on this GB - sorry, chaps. Dependent on time, I may bring in newer tool kits as I go along. I've got the Red Stripe Bag 'boxing'... The kit comes in silver-grey plastic, only 30 parts. Raised detail outside but absolutely zero detail inside the cockpit area, other than two pins for the pilot to perch on. That said, the pilot has gone AWOL so I'll need to set up an 'office' that will tempt him back. All the gen on the 'North American P-51D Mustang' - I fancy doing a check on how this lines up with the wealth of reference material made available here. Ditto for the colour scheme given for this particular aircraft...
  9. OOB build. I decided to do almost no weathering and present her as a freshly cleaned aircraft. Lovely details, excellent fit, but the decals (not Cartograph in my case) are tricky to work with. Sorry, no pictures

  11. P-51D-5 Mustang (82101) 1:48 Eduard ProfiPACK Kit The P-51D was developed by the North American Aviation company as a possible fighter for Great Britain, but due to the poor performance of the engine initially fitted it wasn’t all that good. Luckily they strapped a Rolls-Royce Merlin engine into the airframe and it brought out the best of its design, which included the energy efficient laminar flow wing that gave it the potential to escort Allied bombers all the way to Berlin with the addition of drop-tanks and a lean mixture when not in combat. It was flown in this guise as the Mustang III in British service, and as the P-51B/C in US service, then as the P-51D with the bubble canopy and cut-down aft fuselage, with an additional fin-fillet added later to improve stability that had been reduced by the new shape and fuel tank location. This is the Mustang that most people think of when they hear the name, unless they’re more of a petrol head. Kit This is the eagerly awaited new kit from Eduard. It is a new tool with everything you would expect from a new tool Eduard kit in terms of excellent quality. Construction starts in the cockpit, and as you would expect there is quite a lot of detail straight from the box. The seat is first made up with PE seat belts being added. This is placed on the cockpit floor along with the control column. Behind the seat the radios are added. The sidewalls for the cockpit are separate and these have small parts added before these are put into the fuselage sides. The instrument panel from PE is then added. Also added into the fuselage sides at this point are the backing plates for the exhausts and rear tail well. Construction then moves to the wings. The main wheel well is built up with a representative main spar at the front. The rear wall and all the cross plates are separate pieces. Once the main well is in the top wings can be added to the lower wing. At the font the guns are provided as insert parts. Separate ailerons are then added. The wing can then be joined with the fuselage. At the rear the tailplanes and their control surfaces are added along with the rudder. All these have realistic moulding for the fabric covering. On the underside the tail wheel is added along with the intake lip and engine vents if used for your marking option. Its then time for the flaps and main gear. It would appear the flaps are only in the lowered position so if you are going to do an "in flight" model you will need to do a bit of extra work. For the gear the wheels are in two halves with separate hubs and a three part leg. These are added along with the outer door. The inner doors can also be added at this time. Going back to the main fuselage at the front the exhausts are added, these are different ones depending on the marking option being used. The propeller and spinner are assembled and then added. The main upright aerial is added. The canopy can then go on. Eduard seem to be moulding these thinner at present, while these look good the downside is that they come off the sprues. In the review sample and kits which have been purchased there are clear parts off all the sprues. Masks (not shown) are provided for painting. Lastley for the underside both metal and paper droptanks are provided. . Decals These are in house from Eduard and should pose no problems. As well as the markings there is full stencil data, and information about which areas were left Natural Metal, and which areas were painted. There are markings for 5 different aircraft, but 6 schemes as Cripes A Mighty 3rd is shown with either full invasion stripes in June 44, or partial ones it wore later on. The options are; P-51D-5 1/48 - s/n 44-13318, "Frenesi" flown by Lt. Col. Thomas L. Hayes Jr., 364th FS, 357th FG, 8th AF, Leiston, England, June 1944 (Box art) P-51D-5 1/48 - s/n 44-13321, "Cripes A Mighty 3rd" Flown by Maj. George Preddy Jr, 487th FS, 352nd FG, 8th AF, Bodney, England, August 1944 P-51D-5 1/48 - s/n 44-13321, "Cripes A Mighty 3rd" flown by Maj. George Preddy Jr., 487th FS, 352nd FG, 8th AF, Bodney, England, June 1944 P-51D-5 1/48 - s/n 44-13321, "Devastating Dottie" flown by Capt. John M. Simmons Jr., 317th FS, 325th FG, 15th AF, Lesina, Italy, August 1944 P-51D-5 1/48 - s/n 44-13606, "Louisiana Heatwave" flown by Capt. Claude J. Crenshaw, 369th FS, 359th FG, 8th AF, East Wretham, England, September 1944 P-51D-5 1/48 - s/n 44-13859, flown by Lt. Walter Mullins, 55th FS, 20th FG, 8th AF, Kings Cliffe, England, September 1944 Conclusion It is good to see another new P-51D Mustang kit available, and this is everything you would expect from Eduard. Highly Recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  12. P-51D Gun Bays (648517) 1:48 Eduard for Eduard Kit This set contains 38 resin parts & PE to fit gun bays to the new Eduard kit. The set contains parts for the gun bays. As well as the bays there are the guns and ammo belts. Decals are provided for the loading instructions inside the doors. Some surgery to the kits wings is needed, through note a lot, mainly just removing the panels. This set should get good results and would suit some kind of loading diorama. Highly Recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  13. P-51D Cockpit Set (648522) 1:48 Eduard Brassin - For Eduard Kit Cockpit Set Arriving in the now normal (more eco friendly?) black box is this new brassin set for the new Eduard P-51D. Inside are 28 resin parts, a coloured photo etched fret, a small film sheet, and a small decal sheet.The photo etch parts are for the multi part instrument panel, seatbelts, and the area to the rear of the cockpit under the canopy,as well as a few smaller parts. In resin we get a new cockpit floor with the instrument housing at the front, control column, pilots seat complete with head armour, two fully detailed side consoles, gunsight & coaming, main canopy frame, and the radio area behind the pilot. The decal sheet provides cockpit placards. Review sample courtesy of
  14. So after kick starting my modelling again with a little 1/72 Fw-190 I've decided to tackle one of the 1/48 scale planes in my stash. I'm using Tamiya's well regarded 1/48 scale P-51D kit. I'll be using some third party decals (From Lifelike Decals) to represent the particular aircraft in question (linked below to avoid any copyright issues) http://www.warbirdregistry.org/p51registry/images/p51-4463807-2.jpg So last year I built up a Spitfire Mk1 with a lot of effort put into scratch built detailing and I'm aiming to do the same here. The Tamiya kit is quite simple out of the box surprisingly. I started with the cockpit as per generally accepted practice... There is good detail here but plenty of scope for improvement. Most of the detail is actually molded into the fuselage sides, as such suffers from being quite shallow. Using a pile of reference pictures I found on the net of some hyper detailed flight sim models (they obviously did their research) I set about improving the overall 3D look of the cockpit and adding various missing details and doodads. I felt a bit apprehensive at first carving away the nicely molded (if shallow) detail but soon got into the swing of it. I made decision to stick with the relatively shallow looking sidewall structure though, as trying to fix it would require cutting away all the detail and starting from scratch. The goal anyway wasn't to get absolutely accurate, but at least represent the busy-ness of the real deal. The end product is probably going to be quite anachronistic with regards to the instruments anyway. Here is the right hand side sidewall. Almost all the Tamiya molded detail was cut away and replaced or modified in some way. The switches are all formed from lengths of copper wire glued into drilled holes and cut to length. The oxygen hose is a length of copper wire wrapped tightly with lead wire. There is also a little hand crank to be fitted still but I'll do that after the increasingly daunting task of painting all this up... Left sidewall. Similar story here. The jutting out thing is the flare pistol barrel, which I struggled with for a bit, it's a bit overscale overall but I'm happy with it. There is a flare case I molded from Milliput yet to be fitted. The round knobs on the throttle quadrant were also made from Milliput. Cockpit floor and IP. Oddly enough Tamiya don't provide a IP decal for the instruments. I've had to order in some Airscale 1/48 scale instruments for this, Given how long stuff takes to arrive on our shores I'll probably be held up a bit when I get to this point. And finally the missing bits off the sidewalls, the crank made out of tiny slivers and punched discs of styrene and the Milliput molded flare case. It's my first try with the stuff and an overall average effort but good enough given it's size. Next up will be the seat, rudder pedals and the area behind the cockpit with the radios and battery.
  15. 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... Be more ambitious: think about a family of 1/48th N.A. F-82 Twin Mustang!

  16. Hi all - Here's my latest - Tamiya's P-51D in 1/48 - An enjoyable build although as ever, Tamiya's decals put up quite a fight. The kit is old but still top quality - it goes together very nicely - My one issue is the way the canopy is attached - with no framing where it meets the plastic. I added scratch built details to the wheel bays, used a Eduard PE cockpit interior with additional parts - also Eduard resin wheels. Painted in Alclad and Tamiya arylics - weathered with oils, enamel washes and pigments. WIP build is here: Thanks for watching Cheers John
  17. Hi all, An appeal for your input, please: Does anyone out there know why these tanks were fitted "on their side" and, as they clearly were, what does the fixing and pipwork look like? On some images you can see a pipe vertically running slightly inboard and close to the LE of the pylon. Thanks a lot. Martin

    P-51D "Dappy VI"

    The old Hasegawa P-51D 1/72 kit has decals for an aircraft from 339 FW flewn by Col. William C. Clark and named Dappy VI. I can't find any information about this aircraft nor any pictures of it or the kit with mentioned decals. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/hasegawa-a16-mustang-p-51d-north-american--158278 Or did Hasegawa and Scalemates get it wrong about the name of the aircraft? Happy IV or... ? Someone who knews? Cheers / André
  19. Hello, The old Lindberg "Bomber Escort", an P-51D Mustang (probably the very first P-51D in1/72) was marked VF-L with serial number 317926. Was this an real aircraft or just an fictional marking made by Lindberg? It seems that Lindberg saw what was comming and didn't want to pay any royalties to Boeing by not naming their kit as an P-51D Mustang. https://www.oldmodelkits.com/index.php?detail=23976&page=1&manu=lindberg Picture's of the Lindberg "Bomber Escort" can be seen att IPMS Stockholm. https://www.ipmsstockholm.se/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=9533&p=87124#p87124 Cheers / André
  20. Another market tester, the cheap and cheerful Airfix 1/72 P-51D, which could be had for as little as £2.99 recently. The decals were from an ancient 15 year old Hasegawa kit and were headed for the bin until the miser in me kicked in, apart from needing a new bogus tail code due to some ill advised Daco Red all was well. Paint is Alclad and Mr Color as usual, along with my no hole magnetic stand. No aerial wires and pitot left off as this is a "to be posted" item but a personal one would have got some Uschi "rig that thing" fine that looks right in this scale. Only thing that needed effort were the guns which are Albion tube. So number 12 for 2019 and 2 already for July, loving my build fever right now. As I can't get up any enthusiasm for building anything for the display cabinet, these one-a-week builds are keeping my modelling skills honed til inspiration strikes me and I finish my 1/72 'Nam Spook thats been sat forlornly since March. Mind you would be nice to finish at least 25 1/72 airplanes this year.... WIP here: And beauty shots here: Thanks for tuning in. Cheers Anil
  21. Several 357th FG P-51Ds from the first two Inglewood-built batches (NA-109 c/n 26896...28485 or P-51D-5NA 44-13253...14052 and P-51D-10NA 44-14053...14852) are commonly shown as camouflaged in OD/NG - sometimes even with white identification stripes across the wings. The best known examples are: 4-13691 PassionWagon, 4-14709 MissouriArmada and 4-14798 ButchBaby from the 362nd FS 4-13518 HorsesItch, 4-13714 DesertRat, 4-13717 ReluctantRebel and 4-14450 OldCrow from the 363rd FS 4-13318 Frenesi and 4-14507 Tangerine from the 364th FS First question is whether were they (and 1588 other D-5 & 10NA a/c) factory-painted in OD/NG like most of the P-51B/Cs or have all the teardrop-Mustangs for the USAAF left the factory in NMF ? If it was a factory finish then everything is clear, but if they were delivered in NMF and matt painting was the 357th FG tactical "therapy" applied in the UK it seems hard to believe that original US colours were applied there. For the topsides the RAF Dark Green (just a little bit greenish than OD, but far from from the US Medium Green) looks more probable, but what about the undersides? If the colour was so dark that white stripes were used (and not black ones like on the NMF P-51D wings) was it Ocean Grey, Dark Sea Grey or Extra Dark Sea Grey? IIRC all three were substituted with FS36118 NG on the US-built aircraft destined for Britain. The contrast of white stripes on Sea Grey Medium seems too weak... Cheers Michael
  22. Hello, When building the P-51D Mustang in 1/72 with Peddinghouse decals I discovered that this aircraft according to Peddinghaus had smaller stars n bars on the wings than other P-51D during the same period. Actually smaller than the ensignia on the fuselage sides. Is this correct and was it common? It looks strange as all stars n bars where painted before delivery... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Peddinghaus-1-72-P-51D-20NA-Mustang-Sunny-VIII-Markings-Everett-Stewart-2570-/171167353048 http://wingstracksguns.com/dt_gallery/north-american-p-51-mustang/p-51-sunny-viii/ Cheers / André
  23. Barracuda Studios is to re-release a 1:48 P-51D decal sheet with markings for five aircraft: 1) P-51D-20-NA "Double Trouble Two," 353rd Fighter Group, 352nd Fighter Squadron, 8th Air Force Flown by Lt. Colonel “Wild” Bill Bailey. 2) P-51D-15-NA Mustang “The Millie G,” 55th Fighter Group, 343rd Fighter Squadron, 8th Air Force Flown by Major Edward Giller. 3) P-51D-15-NA Mustang “Amorous Len III,” 357th Fighter Group, 363rd Fighter Squadron, 8th Air Force Flown by Captain Reager. Yoxford Airfield, England, 1944-45. This fictional airplane can be easily adapted by the clever modeler to represent another well known aircraft. 4) P-51D-5-NA Mustang “Lou IV," 361st Fighter Group, 375th Fighter Squadron, 8th Air Force Flown by Lt. Col. Thomas Christian. 5) P-51D-15-NA Mustang “Alabama Rammer Jammer” 353rd Fighter Group, 352nd Fighter Squadron, 8th Air Force Flown by Lt. Arthur Cundy. According to www.1999.co.jp/eng/, the decal sheet is to be released in January 2019, but it's been on preorder since November 22. Wanting to get my hands on the markings for "Amorous Len III," I went and preordered (first time in my life) the decal sheet from Barracuda Studios website for 11.95$ plus 8$ for shipping.

  24. Hello. Wonder, is there any 1/72 decals available today for Airfix first P-51D Mustang? https://www.oldmodelkits.com/index.php?detail=17036&manu=Airfix What I understand the real aircraft had an blue nose and D-day markings. Yellow rudder? http://www.americanairmuseum.com/aircraft/18399 It could be fun building an new P-51D with the markings of one of the first P-51D kits... Cheers / André
  25. Here's my entry to the GB. The recent new tool Airfix P-51D based in India so it ties in i think with the SEA (?) section. The Mustang wasn't prevalent in the Pacific until nearer the end of the war and was better known in the ETO. It is also rarer to see a Mustang with the Bazooka tubes, and according to references i have seen on the net this aircraft was definitively armed with them. Box Top and scheme photos.. More to follow shortly, thanks for looking, Cheers Greg
