This is the start to my build
The Kit box
Inside the box
The aircraft I am going to build
The finish on the aircraft is a rather faded HSS -High Speed Silver
An interesting fact about NZ2413 is that she was the only RNZAF P 51D
to have a cuffed Propeller. All her other stable mates had un-cuffed props.
This makes life easier fro me in that I don't have to replace the kit prop
Decals from ventura
Interestingly I have read that the blue on the roundels was a house paint which
ended up fading rapidly.....
RNZAF Mustangs arrived in New Zealand in 1945 circa Late August early September
too late to see action in replacing the very war wary F4U-1/FG-1 Corsairs.
The Mustangs had been fitted with rocket rails, the kit does not
have them, so I will have to build some and attach
A TAF Mustang pulling target towing duty, but you can clearly see
the rocket rails
