The Merlin looks great. Colors and finish look awesome. Any tips?

Thanks guys, I sprayed the engine Floquil Engine Black. Quite nice paint, I wish we could still buy it up here. It takes on that yellow reflection like sun bleached black paint can get.

 

I picked out some of the bolts with silver also. More to come

Dang!, late to the party, sorry Ron. :closedeyes:

 

You're off to a super start. The engine looks splendid.

 

I'm trying to ingest as many of these on-line P-51 builds as I can.

Modelling vicariously.

 

:goodjob:

Thanks

 

I have some more work done on the pit now. I have no idea if I am accurate with the interior for a post war RCAF Mustang but I am not shooting for 100% accuracy here. This is intended to be a fun build not a research project.

 

Thanks for looking,

Wow, that has got some very nice detail and very nicely painted Ron, wish Tamiya would make a 1:24 scale of this. :goodjob:

Hi Ron,

 

Looks great so far. Where you getting the deekals from?

 

Brad

 

Thanks,

 

They are rather rare. Printed by Leading Edge for GOMB's (Grumpy Old Model Builders) Modelfest 2005 in Calgary. I didn't attend but got a set from a friend several years ago.

You interested in a set Brad? I have the same sheet, but won't be using them. No instructions, but placement is pretty obvious.
