  1. what about this free film decal paper? has anyone have experience with it? thanks to mathieu
  2. photos taken at the Flugmuseum Messerschmitt, they have two G models, none E model https://www.flugmuseum-messerschmitt.de/messerschmitt/aircraft/index.html
  3. great work on thant cowling John! interesting relic pics, cheers
  4. nice job on those rivets, some greta references here, cheers
  5. looking cool John, checking some ref pictures, looks to me that the wheels angle could be slightly more pronounced cheers
  6. Thanks Tom, yes, finally she is standing on her feet, cheers
  7. Thanks Chuck, very appreciated from a superb modeler like you, we are working both for NAA aircraft at the moment cheers thanks John for the info, there is a new Alclad decals in the market, coincidence? https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/PF32412P?result-token=mBaQK&fbclid=IwAR0v6EtqXi2X4XmsWFtM9X8zJLffqbX-ZTdVfoXWJy-4LYraxRZMGCsWD84 I have not update since it's been boring stuff and not much visual, lots of sanding and filling rivets/panel lines... still more to sand and prime ahead but getting closer to the paint phase, most of the "silver" paint has been striped using superglue cleanner, I find out by accident, it works fine and does not damage the plastic, the wheel bay will be closed since is the position depicted in the image I'm rendering, so that excuse me from losing my mind with those pipes and wires detailing also a big shout to my friend Mathieu who kindly sent me stencils made in the silhouette for "Ferocious Frankie" markings, cheers
  8. God bless you are back Peter, missing the progres on this build the lettering came out perfectly, nice 3d resin wheels too! seems like the tail wheel had a protection canvas, some nice reference pics from laurent Boulestin, keep the good, cheers
  9. looking really good Joachim, love your weathering techniques! you might find this pic quite interesting, cheers! Antonio
  10. no idea Mark I didn't make it myself, just reworked the one used in Olivier's build, the alclad sheet I posted needs to be reduce to a 15% to make it 1/32 scale, hope it helps, cheers mate! thanks mate, sometimes it is possible lol, cheers today I finished the decals applying.. some YZC formers and dark washes, next will be the plumbing fun cheers
  11. thanks for your kind words Tom, although I'm not the first in doing this, I was inspired by Olivier's "Misurii Armada" wheel bay in 1/48 and also I've seen in other builds, thanks for comment anyway mate! cheers Antonio
  12. thanks man, I appreciate it, cheers thanks Bevan, I printed a pilot last year, it came out quite well in 1/48 scale so in 1/32 scale will have even more resolution detail, cheers Thanks Master Mark cheers! Thanks John, yes, glad that this technology is finally affordable for our poquet and hobby . cheers Thanks kev, glad you like it man! cheers Tonight task, I decided to replicate the Alclad stamps on the undersurface wing visible through the wheel bays, I printed it on transparent decal with my ink printer, manage to complete one side, tomorrow the other . thanks for watching, cheers if anyone want to print his own here it is
  13. oh man, that is a superb canadian Mustang, love the scheme, glad you are so near the finish line, keep pushing mate! cheers
  14. Thanks Tom for the support, my pleasure to share with you guys! cheers after a couple of hours refining details on Wallace Hopkins, still more to do... cheers
  15. Thanks Mark , talking about sculpture, I'm also sculpting the pilot like in the reference picture which will be 3d printed once it is finished, cheers
  16. thanks Richard for your words, I'm following your awesome Mustang build, cheers! Thanks Master Mark , I 'm glad cheers thanks Tom, yes. those footages are pure Mustang gold indeed! cheers little update, today I recreated the canvas cover for the landing gear tail, used some milliput putty, some very useful reference pictures by Laurent Boulestin, cheers
  17. thanks Tom, always a pleasure mate! cheers thanks Mark, pure High-tech So today's update, the kit I bought is the "silver color plated" version which I did not know at that time, I personally would not recommend it as surfaces need to be sanded to let the glue make its work... I used a spare non fin tail from my previous Mustang the fuselage halves have been closed I decided to sand and engrave the fasteners on the cowling since tamiya represents them raised, this operation was done with the binding tool n6, the cowling piece is very thin and easy to go through.. so careful is needed! also the small panel next to the windshield has been deleted as not in use for this early model. Also been working on this, applying putty about the 40% of the front wings to delete the rivets and panel lines like in this very nice diagram by John Terrell showing the procedure used in NAA in order to maintain the laminar flow characteristics of the wing. thanks for watching, so until next one, cheers Antonio
  18. the masks went perfect, smooth job, you are about to have fun with the weathering, you got it Tom! cheers
  19. Thanks Tom, good eye mate, yes, it looks also like there is a strap in which the hose is clipped, I should revise that, thanks and cheers!
  20. thanks Peter, glad that you like it and are follow it, cheers Thanks Mark, glad to hear that you had fun in my country, I'm sure you enjoyed tapas and the sun of the south cheers Thanks Bevan So, the other sidewall is done now, hoping to close that fuselage halves pretty soon and move to the wheel bays which will be the next big task, thanks for looking, cheers
  21. incredible attention to detail Mark, this will be very handy for my wheel bay as reference! cheers
  22. Thank you Mark, I can't say less about your work, truly inspirational mate! cheers been working on the right cockpit sidewall, again Terrell's sims as a guide, used Barracudas cockpit resin and placards decals, added some white punched decals to represent the NAA inspection stickers also, cheers
  23. Thanks Mike and Tom, glad that this stuff is useful, John is a devoted Mustang expert, cheers talking about seats, yesterday I decided to change the back cushion color in to yellow, also wanted to use the Barracuda decal for it cheers
  24. thanks Tom, yes there were 2 type of seats used on the "D" model the Warren Mcarthur model and the Schick Johnson, I can quote some explanation from John Terrell himself written in the Mustang SIG forum time ago: The more I have looked at photos, the more it seems that the metal SJ seat only became prevalent, or at least more prevalent, in later D-models, past the D-15-NA era blocks. It seems that P-51D-5-NA's and D-10-NA's, if at least mostly, were fitted with WM seats. I don't recall seeing much, if any, photos showing WWII-era P-51B's or C's fitted with anything other than a WM seat, though a few of the P-51B/C's flying today are fitted with a metal SJ seat to the stock seat posts, while others have a WM seat (of which there are multiple types) installed to the stock seat posts. You really start to see metal-SJ seats on P-51D-20-NA's, D-25-NA's, and D-30-NA's, though I believe you can also find WM seats mounted to these blocks as well. If I were to model a P-51D-5 to D-15, I'd be more inclined to model it with a WM seat, and if I were to model a P-51D-20 to D-30, I'd be more inclined to model it with a SJ seat (without looking at actual photos of the individual aircraft before starting). and some reference pictures, first the Warren Mcarthur seat a view of a P-51 D-5NA cockpit with the WM seat Secondly the Schick Johnson seat SJ seat visible in the 339th FG D-20 picture
