Ralph "Kidd" Hofer's P-51B. (This build is a data gathering exercise for future rebuild of 1/32 21st C. P-51B. If the HK kit comes out before then information will be applied to it.)

 

Yahu I.P.

 

Airscale Placards

 

Aires PE seat belts.

 

Aires Cockpit(modified): 

 

The a/c didn't have the fuselage fuel tank and therefore had a different radio installation than those so equipped. Added s/b SCR-695 IFF and sliding shelf; battery box. Moved SCR-522 and accumulator.

 

Scratched pilots armor as a/c didn't have first-aid pack behind pilot's head.

 

Added SS seat rails.

 

 

First Cockpit shot:

More photos to follow. All comments welcome.

 

 

Cheers,

 

D.B.

 

PS:  Don't have a digital SLR w/ micro lens so detail shots are the best I can get out of my point and shoot. Maybe one day...... :)

Nice work, Damian! Hard to believe it's only 1/48 scale.

Oops, never mind! I just re-read the first post - airscale, of course! Looks great, and I still reckon you're pulling our legs about it being 1/48 scale.

Yep, looks good, D.B. The Tamiya Mustangs are great kits.
