Amazing. I have never seen anyone attempt to replicate this. And there are a multitude of Mustang builds out there! This is truly something special. Way to go!


Cheers,  Tom

thanks for your kind words Tom,  although I'm not the first in doing this, I was inspired by Olivier's "Misurii Armada" wheel bay in 1/48 and also I've seen in other builds, thanks for comment anyway mate! cheers ;)

I like that.  What typeface and point size?


Thank you.



no idea Mark I didn't make it myself,  just  reworked  the one used in Olivier's build,  the  alclad sheet I posted needs to be reduce to a 15% to  make it 1/32 scale, hope it helps, cheers mate!

thanks man, I appreciate it, cheers

thanks Bevan,  I printed a pilot last year, it came out quite well in 1/48 scale so in 1/32 scale   will  have even more  resolution detail,  cheers



Thanks Master Mark B) cheers!


Thanks John,  yes, glad that this technology is finally affordable for our poquet and  hobby :). cheers 


Thanks kev, glad you like it man! cheers


Tonight  task, I decided to replicate the Alclad stamps on the  undersurface wing visible through  the wheel bays, I printed  it on transparent decal with my ink printer,  manage to complete one side, tomorrow the other ^_^.

 thanks for watching, cheers

if anyone want to print his own here it is
















Amazing work!  If anyone wants to take the easy way for these markings, Fundekals includes them on their P-51 stencils sheet.

I really like the extra detail you are adding to this model, which sets it off from the rest.  Great job!




Thanks Chuck, very appreciated from a superb  modeler like you, we are working both for NAA  aircraft at the moment :) cheers

thanks  John  for the info,  there is a new Alclad decals  in the market, coincidence? ;)




 I have not update since it's been boring stuff and not much visual, lots of sanding and filling rivets/panel lines... still more to sand and prime ahead but getting closer to the paint phase,  most of the "silver" paint has been striped using superglue cleanner, I find out by accident, it works fine and does not damage the plastic,  the wheel bay will be closed since is the position  depicted in the image I'm rendering, so that excuse me from losing my mind  with those pipes and wires detailing :lol:

also  a big shout to my friend Mathieu who kindly  sent me  stencils made  in the silhouette   for "Ferocious Frankie"  markings, cheers
