Costa Rican P-51D Mustang - a "Last Legs Pony"

Recommended Posts

This is the first instalment in my "Last Legs Ponies" project--an ex-Texas ANG P-51D pony that was on its last legs in Costa Rican service in 1955. The kit is Airfix, and only modification is the antenna mast, for which I used a needle. The decals are from Blue Rider. Special shout out to @Corsairfoxfouruncle who pointed out and guided me through the "ghost" Texas ANG markings, which made this model particularly interesting for me. Enjoy!












Here is the original:

I'm very impressed with the ghost markings. I don't believe I've ever seen that done on a model before and yours is most convincing.

Thanks for the kind comments @Wulfman @Bertie Psmith @Corsairfoxfouruncle @HOUSTON @SAT69 @opus999!


Regarding the ghost markings, really didn't know what I was doing, but I am happy with how they turned out and again wouldn't have even realized I should do them without @Corsairfoxfouruncle!


And I forgot to link the WIP in case of interest:
