This one has a story to it. When he was doing his P51A I made a remark that Hobbycraft was not available in Holland. Two weeks later a parcel landed on my doorstep with the kit in it, also two P47 models and a lot of lose stuff to finish the Razorback I was building at that time.

 

He made me promise that I would make Mrs Virginia.

 

So Russ, here we go.

I am sure that, whereever you are right now, you will have a good laugh about this so every now and then.

 

Cheers buddy

I never forgot about this one but just didn't start with it. That has changed. Got the Aires cockpit and started too chop some plastic. Since the layout from a P51A and B cockpit were pritty much the same I use the side panels, IP and some other stuff from the Aires set. Cannot use the floor because the A had no floor, the top of the wing was the floor. So hope I got that right.

Nice work Rick! Im sure Russ approves.......... :closedeyes:

 

Out of curiosity, with the unusual pose of the pilot, what is he supposed to be doing? Looks like it would be hard to fly in that pose...... :lol:

 

Cheers,

Brian

He ain't flying, just sitting or hanging on a wing. You'll see when it's ready, which means I haven't got a clue how to rap this one up......

Nosejob done. Trying too do what he did with this kit makes me realize how incredible talented he was. Took me quite a few hours..
