  1. Aside from a couple of antennas, are there any substantial differences between the standard D and Pacific D kits?
  2. Back in the mid `80`s, the California Highway Patrol started using Ford Mustangs as patrol/pursuit cars. So for this What If build, what if they had used P-51 Mustangs instead? They certainly would have been fast enough to catch any speeders on the road. Plus there's the added benefit of six Browning 0.50cal to shoot up slow down any one trying to evade. Just think what the television show "World's Scariest Police Chases" would have looked like. Some bank robber fleeing in his car only to get strafed by the Mustang. Chase over. I was looking to find an inexpensive Mustang kit for the build
  3. Hello everyone, This is my first time to post a build on here and I'm a little ways into my build already but I thought why not share my progress and gather some others' input for future builds. I'm making the 1/32 Tamiya P-51D pretty much OOB. I do plan to use some OOP Pyn-up decals I have. I can't decide which one I want to do first though, I'm torn between Passion Wagon and Moon Mullins' P-51D. Both of these birds are early production P-51s with a filletless tail. Before I post pictures of my decals can someone please tell me if it's allowed to post nude pin-ups that were nose art? I'l
  4. Hello all: Well, I got damn sick and tired of watching all the great builds going on here and not having anything to participate with. So, I canned the P-61 (actually put it back in the box and shelved it but "canned" elicits a more appropriate feeling regarding the Avionix sets that I attempted to use. Adjectives of disappointment with those sets fail me at the moment so I'll forget about it and move on.) Anyway, I pulled out a Tamiya first release P-51D from the stash shelf and decided to "have a go" (best British accent). Below are a few of the photos of the progress I've made on i
  5. AKA - Diving into the Alclad Pool.....I just hope the water is fine..... A very very generous soul here wished me an early Merry Christmas here with a package that he said needed to belong to a good Mustang home. I am very grateful and humbled. The package contained a whole slew of bits and pieces from more than a few of the old silver Monogram Mustang. In fact its so old its described as "3/8 INCH SCALE". I had never seen this kit in the flesh, though in the stash are two of the Phantom Mustang versions. Seems its the same kit minus the stand and electrical motor that goes in the
  6. After building both the Tamiya A6M Zero and Spitfire, I am eager to sink my teeth into their P-51D Mustang! Adding a few AM bits, Barracuda resin tires, G-Factor brass gear, and HGW seatbelts. Not certain yet which markings I plan to use, so for now will start with building the engine then move onto the wings until I figure out which production block the finished model will be, as the cockpit has numerous differences between them. So for now, a quick photo of the box and AM bits, and on to the build!
  7. About half an hour ago I got new pictures from Zoukei-mura, showing stunningly build up samples showing the four marking schemes given in this coming kit:
  8. Finished this one today, what an awesome kit! After building Tamiya's A6M5, I thought it was the best ever. Their Spitfire was even better, and I loved that one too. This one is even better, and I can only surmise that their Corsair will top this one. I will soon find out! Tamiya's 1/32 P-51D, built as Col. Glenn Eagleston's "Feeble Eagle" of the 353rd FS. Built mostly from the box, with Barracuda Resins tires, G-factor tailwheel strut and HGW seatbelts. Main decals are from Eagle Editions, stencil decals are from Fundekals. All of the decals performed flawlessly. I scratchbuilt so
  9. Well, this came as a complete surprise to me. I had been completely content with the Airfix 1/24 P-51D kit, and really happy to have scored the reissue P-51D/K boxing with all the extra bits and pieces, and much better plastic. BUT.............. I just had the amazing fortune of aquiring the Hobby Craft 1/24 P-51D, and all I can say so far is......WOW!!!! This kit is just amazing, and is probably worth the c-note plus, that they are listing them for, and so what makes this even better is that I paid just over a third of that for this jewel. So with this aquisition I am moving the paint schem
