Hi Jan,

Eagerly watching your build as this will be the next Mustang I build, from the Revell kit.  Looks amazing and the level of detail you are pulling out of the kit is really awesome - looks great.

Can you remind me what paints you are using for the interior green?

 

Thanks
Chris

Having just done that bit, isn't that cockpit assembly clever. Mine slotted itself together beautifully

Same here Richard, didn't have any issues so far  :)

Thanks Chris, really apreciate  :)

for the interior green I'm using Mr. Paint MRP-131 Interior green ANA 611

I'm not sure if it's the best match available with original color but I can live with it  :coolio:

small progress

brassin exhausts are really nice and easy replacement

Didn't have any problems with gluing cockpittogether and close the fuselage

there will be some filler and sanding needed but nothing significant

Looking great so far. I do have a question about the markings. What decals sheet has the markings you are going to use? Really like the Hurry Home Honey markings.

Thank you Jim. Regarding the markings, I still didn't decide whether I will use masks for insignias or decals. For the rest I will go with Zoukei Mura extra set SWS04-D01. It's printed by Cartograf so it should be fine.

I have added some PE stuff

and started to play with PE wheel wells.  When I consider that I want to keep central wheel covers closed, I'm not sure if it's worth the effort.

brassin propeller assembled. Better and crisp detail overall

Unfotunately even it should be the direct replacement of kit part, spinner diamter is 0,5-1mm smaller than the original part. I'm not expert to say in terms of accuracy which one is correct. I have sanded down front engine cowlings to get good alignment and will rescribe some lost panel lines later.

small update

finished wheel wells, the PE stuff makes difference

I didn't want to spend more time with detailing it cause it will be mostly hidden by central wheel covers
