When I built my 1/24 Mk.IXc, I used/modified the exhausts from the Airfix Stuka kit. The build was the subject of a two part article in the Nov & Dec 1996 issues of Scale Models International. The following are two photos of my model and the last page of the article which lists the parts used.

I found the exhausts for the Merlin powered Mustag here:

would that works as well?? I think so...I ordered it now

 

Hi Menelaos,  the very same 3D-printed Mustang exhausts are also available in gray resin directly from Model Monkey (click here).  Grey resin is smoother.  I am the designer.

 

Cheers!

Interesting topic. Can the windscreen and canopy of the Airfix 1/24 Mk Vb kit be used for a Mk IX ?

 

I have an Airfix 1/24 Mk Ia, but I think the canopy from that kit might not be correct for a Mk IX ?

this is another point. I have the Trump. Vb Kit. As far as I know for the early IXs the canopy was the same. The front part had in later models no outer armor glas (but intern)
