WIP: Tamiya 1/48 P-51B

Recommended Posts

Ralph "Kidd" Hofer's P-51B. (This build is a data gathering exercise for future rebuild of 1/32 21st C. P-51B. If the HK kit comes out before then information will be applied to it.)


Yahu I.P.


Airscale Placards


Aires PE seat belts.


Aires Cockpit(modified): 


The a/c didn't have the fuselage fuel tank and therefore had a different radio installation than those so equipped. Added s/b SCR-695 IFF and sliding shelf; battery box. Moved SCR-522 and accumulator.


Scratched pilots armor as a/c didn't have first-aid pack behind pilot's head.


Added SS seat rails.



First Cockpit shot:





More photos to follow. All comments welcome.







PS:  Don't have a digital SLR w/ micro lens so detail shots are the best I can get out of my point and shoot. Maybe one day...... :)
