Here is my newest build, This is the fantastic Tamiya P-51 mustang using eagle-editions decals. I added a few extra items to the build such as the battery wiring behind the seat, hgw seatbelts, barracuda cockpit decals and adding a little plumbing for the drop tanks. My mustang was painted using alclad dura-aluminum for the wings, aluminum for the airframe and contral surfaces and dark aluminum in a few other spots, the black and white invasion strips were by Mr Paint and, the blue nose is from Mr Paint su-27 dark blue. I added some weathering to it using a flory wash, and then tamiya pastels for the exhause stain and gun ports, then the blue was given a semi-matt finsih. i hope u guys like my build here, questions and comments are welcome

Fantastic build ! ...If the P-51 isn't the best looking fighter of the period, I must be blind. Your build really illustrates that well.
