  1. Just a quick question: Are the decals for Cpl Pumphrey P-40 artworks for a short tail or longtail F? Thanks!

    Have ordered before from PWMP, received my resin parts and I have to say, they look good. He's easy to deal with, and you should have no worries.

    The alignment issue is actually the firewall. You have to shave and trim the top. It seems if you follow the instructions the firewall is placed in a wrong angle. I believe the reason for this was when the first issue wildcat was corrected, they corrected the fuselage, wings, canopy, but not all the interior.

    Same thing happened with the letters. From my standpoint, these are fixable. I'll use acrylic paint to touch up the artworks and serials Untitled by Docdodj, on Flickr Untitled by Docdodj, on Flickr

    Another update: So I made my decals, but unfortunately they shattered on contact with water, even with the liquid decal film sealer. So I made another on, waited 48 hours for all the ink to dry. I then applied microscale liquid decal film solution, brushed on the decals at least 5 times, spaced in a 24 hour period. Then the moment of truth.... Untitled by Docdodj, on Flickr I cut the Donald Duck artwork as close as possible. On placement, it looked good, but afterwards had some minor cracking and discoloration.

    Building a Revell P-51D

    Thanks so much for the comments. Anyways, I'm down to the final stretch. Decals are on! The airframe markings are a mix of the revell ones and spares, deciding on those most likely still up on the airframe after invasion stripes was placed on the aircraft. Unfortunately, there are no accurate 1/32 decals for Emerson's mustang, especially the striking Donald duck artwork. So I looked at different sources, chose the most accurate, and made my own artwork. Decals are printed, I just need to paint the tailplane/rudder recognition stripes before I put on the decals Untitled by Docdodj, on Flickr Untitled by Docdodj, on Flickr

    Thanks for the comments. Here's the link to the aftermarket set. I got mine via hannants, I think you can get them in most online stores http://master-model.pl/product/am-32-100.html

    So after measuring twice on the sizes of the artwork, I decided to paint the antiglare in OD, and the red nose for the aircraft. After some thought, I also decided on using the dropped flaps, so I had to paint the also in invasion stripes Untitled by Docdodj, on Flickr Untitled by Docdodj, on Flickr Untitled by Docdodj, on Flickr Untitled by Docdodj, on Flickr That's it for now, next up: tails stripes and serials using stencils!

    At this point, I decided to measure the sizes of the artwork that I'll use. Untitled by Docdodj, on Flickr

    Of course, the smaller parts got airbrushed too. Untitled by Docdodj, on Flickr

    Major update on my build. Paint is on!, I used Vallejo metal color for the aluminum. Decided to just use one shade for the mustang, but I did use steel form Vallejo to create the different panel over the exhaust area. Untitled by Docdodj, on Flickr Untitled by Docdodj, on Flickr
  14. As the title suggests, how wide was it? Was there a specification on how to measure where exactly place them, similar to orders on invasion stripes size, width, distance from national markings? Thanks in advance! :-)

    So after trying to look for a suitable replacement, I used a ben, and cut staple wire, then superglued a bead from a bag of dessicant silica. Will paint it black later once the superglue dries. Untitled by Docdodj, on Flickr So that's it for now. Hopefully I can primer the kit by tomorrow, crossing fingers.
