1/48 Tamiya P-51D

by Pascal Frey



Here's some photos of my P 51D, Tamiya 1/48 kit and Hasegawa decals (Glenn Eagleston P 51D).

The cockpit and wheels bays are scratch built, seatbelts are from Eduard.

The fuselage and tail surface are riveted with "Rosie the riveter"

The only problem was when a "flying" piece of Tamiya tape stick on the eagle decal on the fuselage. I remove it carefully but 50% of the "proud eagle" was off. I had to repaint it.....

Paint is Alclad, dark aluminium for the wing, 60% alu+ 40% polished alu for the fuselage and stab, and panelling in light coat of stainless steel.

PSP is from "Mark 58" (very fine moding)

I hope you enjoy this P-51D !
