  1. 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
  2. looking really good Joachim, love your weathering techniques! you might find this pic quite interesting, cheers! Antonio
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. oh man, that is a superb canadian Mustang, love the scheme, glad you are so near the finish line, keep pushing mate! cheers
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. the masks went perfect, smooth job, you are about to have fun with the weathering, you got it Tom! cheers
  12. 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!
  13. 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
  14. incredible attention to detail Mark, this will be very handy for my wheel bay as reference! cheers
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. Thanks Gazas, much appreciated cheers thanks Albert, it's all for the Mustang passion cheers jejej, gracias Tag, rock duro! Thanks Thor, glad you like it, kind words! Cheers Glad you like it Sepp, hopefully will keep it going ! cheers Progress from last session on the seat, printed some dashed lines on white decals and some barracuda leftovers also, hope you like it, until next, cheers Antonio
  19. thanks Mark, it's great to have this wonderful build back cheers
  20. wow, great cockpit John, really stands out!!! one small detail of the control column caught my eye, the central portion was also black not grey, some ref here, keep that beast forward mate, cheers
  21. Thanks Tom, glad you find it interesting and useful, cheers Thanks Gazas, hope it is worth it although won't be much visible when he canopy is on lol, cheers progres from today is the Instrument panel, used as reference guide the amazing work of John Terrell simulators, they are so accurate. Used mostly the Revell kit decals which are for the D-5 block, it's been a labor of love, had to cut each one independently to transfer to the panel, neck hurts but I'm satisfy next is the seat, cheers
  22. progress from today, I try for the first time ever the hairspray technique to create the wood floor chipping, seat and instrument panel are base painted now and will be ready tomorrow, cheers some actual reference
  23. great Job Tom, love how the mottling came out!! cheers Antonio
  24. Thanks Mike for sharing, it's a beauty, great job and love the fact that your model is at the Bottisham Airfield Museum!!! cheers
  25. pics from today's session, some paint on the fuel tank, although the radio rack will cover mostly of the surface, cheers
