1/48 Tamiya P-51D Mustang

 by Björn Dol



This is the well known Tamiya Mustang kit.  It went together real good, I only needed some filler at the underside of the model.

I used the P-51D Cockpit set from True Details.  For the decals I used RepliScale sheet 48-5057

It is a plane from the 362nd FS of the 357th FG "The Yoxford Boys". The plane is 414798 Butch Baby, piloted by Jullan Bertram.  I used the Olive Drab/Natural Grey paint scheme.  For this I used Modelmaster and Humbrol paints.

The decals where applied using Micro Set/Sol, the decals reacted perfect.  For the final flat coat, I used Xtracolor Matt.  I used this for the first time.  Normally I use Revell clear coats, but these react badly to Xtracolor paints which I used for the yellow.  I find the Xtracolor clear coat looks much flatter after 1 time then the Revell one.
