[TAMIYA 1/72] F-51D Mustang "Taipei City" ROCAF

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Last one out of the production line.


Ok, yes, I've yet to add two wing tanks, and one last stencil...







I did have a lot of fun with this one, but yet I managed to make a lot of errors and had my share of bad luck, don't worry!

So, I'm not 100% happy with the result. 70% maybe?

Still, I like it, and hope you will


Weathering much too strong for this scale, to be more specific for the exhausts and the guns, antenna wire much more 1/32 than 1/72, bad fi tof the black upper antenna (Gonio?), etc...


Also, bad luck with PMA decals.

Everything went well with the stylized sun on six positions, but I had three different sets of numbers and stencils wrecked before the one that decided to stay in place! 


This specific F-51 is part of a group of aircraft that were paid by different donators, 067 (F-51067; 44-74956) being paid for by Taipei City(City name is written under the pit.


Any comments welcome, do not hesitate to tell me what you think, whatever it is.

It's good to see a Mustang in post-war, unusual markings :)


Don't be too hard on yourself, weathering on metal colors is always tricky and once it's done, it can be really hard to un-do. I've had my share of bad luck with this as well.
