That‚Äôs the one, and some¬†interesting detail to be had from it. The aircraft doesn‚Äôt have a ‚Äė buzz ‚Äė number for a start, the extra radio is fitted behind the headrest, and I think that the red mark just behind and above the exhaust is a fault on the film.

I hope the weather holds for your vacation, although it’s a little too hot for us pale Britishers.

Hello John,

I think that I nailed her !!

Look at the 3rd mustang in the line, shape of teeth are different

And there's a recuced Buzz number, the spinner is not the same indeed.

But I think that I can go that way for Chappie's bird.

I used that photo as reference for mine ( FF943, nearer camera ) and decide that it was painted metallic grey rather than NMF.  Quite a few were painted but they got so dirty and worn that it looked like oxidise Aluminium anyway.

There was also quite a lot of variation in the shark mouth patterns which is not surprising as they were probably hand painted individually without the use of stencils or templates.

It's a kind of relief for me, Obviously, I'll cheat a bit, but I have all I need at hand now.

Maybe will I alter the sharkmouth a bit after all.

I'm not good enough at hairystick to do it free hand...ūüė©

Next RFI will be Sharky one !!

Almost done !!

Sincerely.

Hello Dears,

Some news from the stable !!

The Korean Mustang received some corrections...

Most of these P-51 and the first ones to be deployed came from the WW II stocks in Japan and Philippines.

So, I took the opportunity to say that this one is one of the VLR modified 'stang !

Since she carried and extra radio...

Antenna is modified...

IMG_20200918_215329

here's the radio and the brackets...

IMG_20200918_223511

Aaaaand both together now !!!

IMG_20200919_002526

While I was on this beast, I added the ignitor tubes on the Ex fuel tanks...

IMG_20200919_003808

Ex fuel tankgenerally mean future giant BBQ.....

Now Yeager's Mustang is nearing completion too

IMG_20200919_002940

And I did'nt resist comparisons...

Here's a Mustang against a Skyraider...

 

IMG_20200919_003920

More to come soon Gents !!

Have a great modelling week end...

And take care

Sincerely.

Great looking IP CC.  8 mustangs on the go !!! Crikey fella 

Chris

I told you Chris, I'm mad !!

And our Dear Martian know it for sure...

A quick check 8 Mustangs, 2 done

                       4 Airacobras, none done...

                       5 Sea Furies, none done

And so on... 3 Canberras... But as I modify a lot... it take some times...

Now, that will make our Dear @Biggles87 happy !!

IMG_20201022_202956

A bit of masking when the black has cured thoroughly...

Aaaaand ???

The Korean Mustang is on to the RFI....

It look like I'm a bit obssessed by Korean war these months...

Well... That's the way it is !!

See you later Gents !!

And take care of yourselves !!

Coming from me it can be considered funny since I did'nt care too much of myself...:hmmm:

Sincerely.
