  1. After wards, the decal on the tail number, at the rudder also broke up. I deduced it may be due to not enough sealant. During the process of removing it, I lifted off some paint. But since I didn't attached the decal, I decided to place it aside, and decide later if I reprint another decal, or just mask it. Anyways, I now decided to place clear gloss, did a panel line wash, and started weathering the kit. Looking at different images, the undersides of the P-51D was very dirty, so I aimed for it as close as I can From what I understand, smoke stains from USAAF aircraft was mostly dark gray, so I went with it. Light at the end of the tunnel, finally!
  2. Ok, disaster struck and the letter decals broke up. so I made a set of masks and just painted them
  3. Finally updating my build! I got sidelined because my house underwent major renovations, and because I lost the decals for the tail number for the vertical fin during the moving around. So fast forward to 2 days ago. While fixing up some stuff in the bedroom, I found the lost decals. So I placed on the tail, touched up the Donald duck decal, and here it is: https://photos.app.goo.gl/Fsu9wFDn3r3EXzes7 So I hope to finish a gloss coat by next week, followed by weathering! Light at the end of the tunnel!
  4. Just a quick question: Are the decals for Cpl Pumphrey P-40 artworks for a short tail or longtail F? Thanks!
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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.

  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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!
  12. At this point, I decided to measure the sizes of the artwork that I'll use. Untitled by Docdodj, on Flickr
  13. Afterwards, I decided to paint the invasion stripes on the wings and fuselage, and the flaps Untitled by Docdodj, on Flickr Untitled by Docdodj, on Flickr
