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.....

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 !
