Seems that Cookenbacher found a way to build an P-51B. Wonder howe long we have to wait for an Arma Hobby Mustang now? If we build them they come...

Just catching up with this one, interesting way to build a B/C, looking very convincing though

Ha! Well, in the last few months I have shaken hands with several illustrious Britmodellers (including yourself John), and as Procopius professes, absorbed some modelling prowess each time.

Looking very good, Cookie :clap:

 

One should always have an INCIDO at hand ... :winkgrin: :D

Thanks Giorgio, I've found a place of my own in LA and should have a permanent bench soon - INCIDO and all.

Looking very nice after "transplantation" - I wouldn't be so brave to do this kind of surgery.

You sanded down now all those raised panel lines? I think it would be the best way to go for proper rescribing.

I tried to use the raised panel lines as guides for the scriber before sanding them down, but they ended up pretty wavy.

It may not be easy, but you make it look easy.  Very impressive work.

Indeed, quite a good looking graft.

Thanks Ratch, AW and Thom!

Oh man, if Arma comes out with a high back Mustang, I'll buy half a dozen.

Thanks Graeme, I already think this method is better than my previous effort cross kitting the Hasegawa and Academy high backs.

 

It may be a week or so before the next update due to a house move next week.

Ah, it's a very, very technological tool: basically a sewing needle in a hobby knife handle, useful to precisely scribe lines on plastic. The idea came originally from @Fritag, I came up with the name, which is Italian for "I scribe".

 

Simples :D

Good luck will rub off when I shakes hands with you (name that movie!). It was a pleasure to meet you, Cookie!

 

Hope the move goes smoothly.

Well, I finally have my bench set up! Unfortunately, I don't think I'll have enough time to finish this one before the GB deadline, but I'll do my best.

Thanks Giorgio!

 

I had to build the landing gear bays on the Monogram wing.

Just some plasticard and a couple oversized ribs to try and hide the join between  card and the wing. Also managed a couple glue fingerprints, you know, for luck.

 

And then added some stringers made from thin plastic rod, and I remembered to paint it YZC first.

It's not particularly accurate, but it'll do I hope, just to look busy enough.
