Always good to see one of the lesser-known FGs represented.  Following.

 

i plan to do a few of that FG, up to now ive done 'Stinky' (Hassegawa kit)  and i have decals for 5more in 1/32, im hoping the new Revell kit meets expectations due to cost (1 already on order - having worked Over time especially to get it)

 

i think, this one will be HEAT WAVE!!

Mark, should be a cracker - I always enjoy seeing the Tamiya super kits come together. Engine looks good so far, I'm keen to see what you do with it.

Cheers
Jim

I have those decals and they are great, as are the notes in the instructions and I will get around to it one day, still looking for a green I like for the nose though.

Impressive detailing on the engine! I'm not an 'interior' guy. I admire those of you that have the patience to make it beautiful and then hide some or all of it.

Yeah, I've seen group photos with differing shades of Green some look like a Moss Green and some look Granny Smith Apple Green. I just dont have a shade I'm happy with to hand.

You chose the right seat. Crenshaw's Mustang was a P-51D-5-NA, so it would have the Warren-MacArthur seat...which you used.
