Ok, I just cant NOT do this.....

I dont know if I can take credit for the term I came up with last night while making a post on another thread....but I like it....
(Im not usually that clever)
"Revellstang" (rev-el-stang) n. 1. A moderately inaccurate P-51B/C or P-51D 1/32 scale plastic model kit produced by Revell Inc. Usually the subject of a love or hate modeling experience. 2. Fictional P-51D Mustang Championship Air Racer with paint scheme loosely based on the Funny Car Drag Racer of the 1970's

The paint inspiration: (web find)
RevellutionDodge-vi_zpsd6d50633.jpg

The kit; (I have had this kit for a while, swiped the canopy, and used the wings as a paint test panel (knowing one day it would end up a racer) so there it sat).

The IDEA: (hope I can pull it off)

I hope to mod the canopy, streamline the belly scoop, clip the wings a bit and add wing tip fences.

:D

THANKS Mark.....dude, thats a huge compliment. It actually made me go back and revisit some of my build threads....(what could possibly be that great?)....but what I did notice, was how sincere, friendly and complimentary everyone here has been to me. I am relatively certain I have not returned my fair share....guess I will have to work on that (I am pretty sure my ENTERTAINMENT value does not count..... :beer4: )

Cool.......Nice project!

Thanks Brian, pretty sure its going to test my airbrushing skills....

Very nice...you are very prolific aren't you? :speak_cool:

Well I had to look that up.....considering I my first marriage started when I was 16, :oops: I guess its appropriate
....but then, maybe thats not what you meant :hmmm:

Well I have nothing accomplished (on any of them), nothing to report, and have only quickly checked in as of late.
So I apologize for not thanking you guys sooner for the cudos.....
O.T.
but we did get to see Huey Lewis and.....wait for it.....JOE COCKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A must see!!! especially Joe Cocker.....hes still got it!

Thanks so much MARU5137!!!! I am stoked you like the design, I cant wait to get to the point of painting the airframe. And yes I am getting withdrawls. I am now thrashing on that pick up truck, but am very much needing a Mustang fix!!!! :blink:

Louie,
Honestly you are like a new housewife not knowing what's the next job on the list,
or trying to do everything all at he same time..
:whistle:
So now I think I have to ask , have you painted the airframe or are you stuck under the truck's bonnet.

You certainly know how to keep us on our toes ...Have fun and post soon...

:)
