Hello folks Been a long time since I asked for folks ideas here, but because I'm planning-on building the Tamiya 1:32 Mustang (and the implied â€˜cost' of this kit), I thought it may be a good idea to get some thoughts before I start hacking away at it. I'm going to build Bill Dunhams' â€˜Mrs. Bonnie' as it was right at the end of the war in summer 1945. The aircraft is a P-51K-10 it's quite well known as it was featured in some publicity photos in August or September. As you can see, despite it being a Dallas-built â€˜K' it has the cuffed Hamilton props and spinner â€“ the blade profile and decals give-it-away â€“ also the whole of the spinner is painted red/yellow/blue & black (front to rear). This is fine as the kit I'm using is the initial Tamiya release, 60322 (which also has the â€˜Dallas' canopy in the box too). Now here's the part where I need your insight & thoughts â€“ Tamiya in their paint & decal instructions show â€˜Mrs Bonnie' with the â€˜correct' Aeroproducts spinner & blades but also would have you paint the spinner back-plate NMF, the colours being the same but compressed. Has anyone got a photo that confirms the Tamiya instructions â€“ just being curious, I'm one of those folks who likes to have as much info as possibleâ€¦ Thanks in advance folks, over to you. Ian. ps Special thanks to Ben (PCBEN80) for supplying the decals all the way from the USA to 'Middle Earth', really appreciate it, matey !!
