Tamiya 1:48 RAF Mustang Mk.III

Recommended Posts

Tamiya kit with Revell decals. Fit was perfect.

The Revell decals were rather thick. The ones on the upper surfaces went down OK after I applied some Vallejo decal softener, but the lower wing roundels refused to conform to the panel lines. I´ll have to find Microsolfor the next time.

The bombs were painted Revell 66 Olive Grey, which was said to be Olive Drab on Scalemates, but it looks too grey.

Looks somehow out of place to see an aircraft in other country's markings.

I'm going to get me an American Mustang D next time, maybe the Hobby Boss one.

Nice work on that! 👍

 

I learn something new every day; I expected it to have a Malcolm Hood.

Do you mean the HB 1/48 "Easy Assembly" kit? The Airfix P-51D would offer a lot more value for a small increase in price.

Yes, I'm talking about that Hobby Boss kit. I actually want it because it has the Missouri Armada scheme in dark green/medium grey, whereas the Airfix kit has both camouflage options in natural metal.

Very nice - mine awaits in the stash.  I may do a parallel build of this one with the forthcoming Airfix Mk IV so yours is a bit of inspiration.
