Name of Build: P51D Mustang Tuskegee Airmen Version

Kit manufacturer: Tamiya

Scale: 1/48

This is the P51d Mustang Tuskegee Airmen Version by Tamiya in 1/48 sacle. After seeing the film Red Tails I had to pick one of these up for my first plane. Construction was lovely with everything fitting together nicely like most other Tamiya kits. The cockpit was painted with Vallejo and Tamiya paints and weathered using AK Interactive washes and pigments. Custom photo etched seat belts were used. I pre shaded the panel lines and for the base coat I decanted some AS 12 bare metal silver and shot it through the airbrush for more control. Weathering was created using oils and Ak Interactive products such as Streaking Grime and Pigments.
