Now a P-51 and maybe a Bearcat !
C'mon Harry, WE FOUND YOU !
OK youv' got a very special wand with phoenix feathers inside. But tell us, just to entertain us poor Muggles : What is the spell for putting kits together so fast ?
Great job Russ. Your work is really admirable.

That does not qualify anymore for a box stcok derby, but yes I like it! and I will follow this one closely.
I keep being amazed at your speed and skill in building kits. I have been laboring for months on a ship kit, before I dare tackle a LSP.
It should be the old Grumman Gulfhawk from Monogram...although I am tempetd by the Macchi MC2 from Brach Models, which I cannot wait to lay on my workbench !
Nawwww, I do not believe your donut story. The only thing chocolate donuts do for me is build my waist, not kits
I think I have found your spell "Kitusexpeditusprestissimus !". Now where is thsi wand for me to try it ....

Uh, oh..where wuz I? Aaaah, yes...2008. Just to show pics that I WAS going to fake everybody out and actually build this as a stock Mustang(heh heh)...here ya go. Placards, PE detail set, blah, blah. Even got it all jigged up. Waited too long to post as I wuz finishing off other things. (I don't FEEL tardy?) Well, all this stuff, and that resin WWII pilot and wheels kept my interest about as long as it took to take that pic. As Derek so aptly put it, "it's time to violate another kit"!

I don't know if everybody here follows the truly decadent American sport of 'Unlimited Air Racing' at Reno, so I'm going to include a short pictoral presentation of where I'm going to be going with this kit...and beyond. Anything is possible in plastic, and I'm only limited by my imagination.
Here's what I call a 'phase 1' Mustang mod. Cut down canopy and wingtips, cleaned up airframe, and a fancy paint-job. Lotsa internal mods, but we won't go there for now, OK?! Here's some examples;
