Haitian P-51D Mustang - a "Last Legs Pony"


Recommended Posts

Here is another instalment from my "Last Legs Ponies" project--a 1/72 Airfix P-51D wearing Haitian decals from Aztec. OOB except for the ADF antenna, which I robbed from an Academy T-6. I opted to not pursue drop tanks as in the photo below.

Here she is along with Costa Rica (Airfix P-51D) and Dominican Republic (Tamiya P-51D).

Looks fantastic, ME, such a great scheme! The Aztec decals look really good - are they nice to use?

Thanks, Mark. Yup, I'm very pleased with the Aztec decals. My only complaint if I had to have one is they're all a little crammed on the sheet!

Excellent - I can definitely see a couple coming my way! They certainly are packed in, aren't they?

 

Cheers,

A nice little Mustang in very unusual colors.  Who knew Haiti had Mustangs.  Don't sweat the kit without drop tanks.  The word "drop" indicates at some time they were missing from the aircraft as they had been dropped.  Thanks for sharing.

Very nice indeed! I've never seen a Mustang with drop tanks like that before, it must be able to fly around the world non-stop with those!!!
