Lemmee step back a bit and include the new nose contours and exhaust stubs. Hmmmmm, it's getting closer to what I have envisioned.

The cowling things really turn out of the right shape!
but an other point should be to be careful with the wing dihedral as the Hasegawa is a bit less than it must be...

Who let that mad man back into the house? (Happy New Year to you ). As usual, very much a 'Rusville' production going on here, and who knows where it will all end up? (It will be an interesting journey though ). I am guessing that this is the Hasegawa kit you are recrafting? (I like the detail extras, especially the pilot figure). I shall stay tuned and hurl abuse/encouragement/advice as required .

Bahahahahaha! Happy New Year to you also Derek! You go right ahead and blast away buddy, I've got the hide of a rhino.....a brain the size of a pea,....the placidity of Buddha, and I'll be chattering away like the village idiot so you'll probably think I'm ignoring you anyway?!
Where wuz I, and what was the question? Yes, the P-51....so I was just getting ready to spray this with a primer coat after getting all the seams on the wings and scribing some engine panel lines. I've been robbing a Dragon kit for parts, as it will become an air racer in the future and won't need what I'm swapping. Using the pylons, shackles, and 110gal. tanks (after I removed most of the raised detail on em) in lieu of the Hasegawa parts. Kit parts were shaped smoother, but I liked the Dragon tanks fuel filler detail. Here's the wings ready to go together,....if I don't have to do more work for the dihedral. Also, the fabric on the elevators has been filled.
