Hello!

Here's my to builds for this GB.

I'm building a Mustang from Guatemala, funny scheme and a Salvadoran Corsair (not so funny)

The Mustang just looked so cool I had to build it :D

Hey Mikkel:

This Stang from Guatemala was flown in the fifties with others painted in the same way as an aerobatic team named "Escuadrilla Acrobática F 51" (Aerobatic Team F 51). It would be nice if you have in mind a WIP.

Also, there are other nicely looking Guatemalan Stangs as the number 315, just one you could find in an Aztec Decal Sheet Number 72-045. My modelling club had a competition for this one plane as theme celebrating the 315 as the oldest F 51 Mustang in Guatemalan Air Force Service since 1954 thru 1972.

This sheet also has other Guatemalan Air Force subjects you can model to embelish your Latino Collection. Anything I could help, just ask.

Cheers from Guatemala,

Luis Alfonso

Thanks Alpa Delta

I will use the Academy F4U-1D and Tamiya P-51D. Decals are spare from the spare box/aztec :)

Cockpit on both are almost done, I'll post something tomorrow :)

Luis:

I will post as much as possible :)

The aztec sheet is very interesting, but I hoped that the Guatemalan Mustang with the lightning down the side, was there. Now thats cool :D

Normaly I wouldn't do a NMF Mustang, cause I suck painting Silver, but the Guatemalan ones are very cool!

I have a photo of the 315 in Escuadrilla Acrobática F 51 colours, I'll make that one then :)

Very best regards

Hi Mikkel:

Nice you have chosen the right version for the right plane!!! :thumbsup: This one and the Aerobatic version are the most colorful GAF Mustangs. Also as an historical point, we had a two place Temco conversion with number 345 and here were trained two Bolivian and one salvadorean Pilot Classes.

My son pointed that If you look carefully, the upper lightning parts in the anti glare panel you could see an arrow, so its so easy to make this version. BTW The one in front of Guatemalan Air Force headquarters, was painted by our club in this version.

Cheers,

Luis Alfonso

Luis,

I'm trying to find a another Mustang so I can make the Lightning one, or was it a "combat" aircraft?

Hi Mikkel:

GO, GO; GO; GO!!! Nice to see you have started. OK, the Lightning scheme was used at the time we had some trouble in our Pacific Ocean Coasts when Mexican ships were getting inside our territorial waters and the Mustangs used in "Operation Drake" were using this lightning decoration. It was in December 1959. So answering the question in a right way: Yes Sir, those marked this way were combat aircraft.

Nice builds! I like what you did with the interior, too bad most of it won't be seen after everything's closed up. You must have had a hard time masking the nose and tail on the P-51!

Hi Mikkel:

Nice to see your progress eith both models and you really have a wonderful job with the Guatemalan Stang!!!

This paint scheme is very tricky but as I have seen, you have studied all the material on hand, and have done more than 70% with the paint at this moment. I was wondering which decals Claudio gave you. Keep on mate, there are more Stangs to do sooooo E N J O Y!!!
