The forward fuselage spine light is blue, the next one has a clear lens. the antenna wire comes from the tail fin mast to the main antenna then down to a port in the right fuselage side into a resistor cone shaped fitting Factory paint had the foot step line not always replaced on repainting
Thanks for the kind comment Kapam There are actually a few new tool Airfix P-51's under way. just waiting for a 1958 Airfix P-51 and a 1972 Airfix P-51 to turn up then I'll line 'em up with their UGLY Revell namesakes
stuck on the bumper (way back, in around the '30-'40s kids just had one pair of mitts. They would go bumper shining transit buses in winter and they would get stuck to the bumper. Well little Johnny would have to say why he had no mitts. Well him and mother would have to go to transit and pick them up, not a very happy mother. It's a true story from someone who was around during that time and still is)
FWIW it's worth, I'll enclose a link to the Trumpeter F-100C build that did, and how I addresses many of these issues. While mine was in 1/72 scale, I believe the kit issues are the same..... There is another F-100D build later on, also on the site. Link Is Here: Ed
I concur with the other commenters - a lovely, skilled build of a kit which bears only superficial resemblance to a P-51! It would be a fun exercise to park it next to a recent tooling of the same type, thus demonstrating the differences. But if you enjoyed the build, that's the main thing.
