Here's the base kit...


Going for the scheme for Andrew Turner's 100th FS bird...painted the interior a nice shade of interior green and the dashboard I treated like a instrument panel- using some Mike Grant gauges...I will take some pics once things dry.

For the main body start- I have the gloss black on...



Trying to decide where the cutoff for the red tail should be-- at the top of the rear window-- or should I slant it onto the roof some-- suggestions? I plan on painting the front fender red and using the same style as seen on the front of Turner's plane:

Got the first coat of red on-- I think I'll need another to offset the black base...but for now- I am happy with how it looks-





And some shots of the engine and panel....my camera is showing it's age and the battery seems shot...which is a shame as I love the Easyshare...still need to add wiring-

Thanks!

Sprayed the Alclad II Airframe Aluminum today-- it looks dusty but I'll buff it up when it's set....

The oil paint was just applied ;). Once it set I wiped it down as grains for the floor-- just like the plywood floor of the P-51 ;)

Thanks!

Just some teeny tiny details left...the blinker and rear side lights...finding some way to make the Mustang letters on the rear pop out...etc....




And I knocked the lower part of the front fender off-- easy considering there really wasn't a great attachment point for it... :bat

Calling this one done....no weathering ;)

Sans hood...

Avec hood...

And de tail man....



Pretty happy with how it turned out-- the front area gave me all sorts of fits...and that with all the NMF done so not a lot of wiggle room to play around without marring things...
