Revell 1/32 North American P-51D-5NA Mustang

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I have just completed Revell's 1/32 P-51D early Mustang. This was OOB with the exception of the HGW textile harnesses. I used Tamiya acrylics and lacquers, Vallejo Metal Color, Windsor & Newton oils and AK weathering products. I really enjoyed this build, fit issues aside. I decided to use the supplied decals rather than masks for this build. The quality of the decals is fantastic. I believe they're Cartograf.

 

I used flat and semi-gloss clear coats to represent the sheen in the areas of the hotly debated 'was it blue or was it green?' topic.

Beautiful Pony, I just picked this kit up. You can’t beat the price. 

 

Regarding fit problems, can you share what they are so I don’t step on the same landmines. 

 

Cheers

Collin

The main one was the intake join. Just needed a bit of sanding to get it to sit nicely and then filling as there were a couple of decent gaps. Nothing major to fix. The tail insert needed a bit of sanding to get a nice profile, again nothing major. The rest was just minor filling of joins. The wings fitted beautifully along the wing root though.
