AVG Flying Tigers P-51D "What If" Chuck Older

Recommended Posts

Having the Dragon P-51D kit in my stash for quite a while and I wanted to build something fun so bought a set of KitsWorld Flying Tigers decals for a 1/32 P-40 to see if I could put the two together.  Decided on Chuck Older's aircraft as it had a distinctive blue mouth that I liked.

The building didn't quite go as planned, and I ended up with a lot of fit issues, but all in all, it was still something fun to try.  The decals, especially the sharksmouth, actually fit very well on the P-51.  The Camo was done using blue-tac, with Model Master Acrylics providing the colors.  MM gloss to seal the decals, then clear flat.

The decals went on fine, and especially around the nose which only needed a bit of paint touch up on the blue in the mouth.

This was very much a quick build, so was not as concerned  with various details as much as just getting it together to see how it would look in the AVG colors.  Something fun to do!
