1/72 Maverick Mustang Modelling

Recommended Posts

Hi all and just finished this one to get me out of a post-summer slump. Built OOB with Tamiya tape for belts. It's the standard Airfix P-51D in the Top Gun Maverick boxing.

Went together very nicely but the canopy frame sides needed sanding to fit right and the u/c legs were badly warped. I decided to paint the stripes instead of the kit decals. Paints were Tamiya and Mr Hobby Extreme Metal. Super Metallic Super Chrome Silver II.

Thanks for looking, happy modelling.













Ground run!

Looks great. How did you find working with the Extreme Metal paints? I ask as I'm trying to find a good alternative to Alclad.



Thanks Justin.
My mistake, it was the Super Metallic Super Chrome Silver II by Mr Hobby that I used. First time for me and it worked perfectly thinned with some Mr Levelling Thinner and sprayed over a gloss black base.
I've only ever used Tamiya Acrylic metal colours and never going back - far too grainy. I've never used Alclad range, sorry.

Hope that helps!
