Hard to find Photos of P-51H aircraft with extra tanks. I figured this Aircraft would need them for flying to Gunnery Exercise

That looks amazing! I may have to build that color scheme!  Isn't the prop supposed to turn the other way? Excellent job!:worthy:

Absolutely a beautiful job!  Great job on something we don't see much, a Classic Airframe kit.  I have several in the stash (although not their P-51) I should take a close look and bring to the workbench.  Stay safe and healthy.

I'm not sure..Props were assembled straight from box...ton of effort to align. (maybe a reverse option🤔 )

 

Thanks All for Positive feedback

That looks superb.  The canopy is beautifully clear and shiney, like the real thing.  An interesting scheme this.  Most of the ones I've seen were in natural metal, albeit with very fancy additional markings.  This scheme certainly does nothing to detract fromm the sleekness of the type.

It looks great Bill!!!  It`s amazing how much “quicker” our respective projects will progress now that we have the time available. 

 

Best regards,

Mike
