It’s been a while since I posted anything. My apologies but I got caught up.

I have been working on the new Airfix P51 D for our clubs “Airfix Cup” to be held at the NSW Scale Model Show on the last weekend in April. This is a quick overview of the build as I am fairly advanced on the build. AM consists of Ultracast seat, Eduard wheels and HS standard cuffed prop. Paints are MM or Colourcoats enamels, AKI Extreme Metals and varn8ishes:

AE0_CF924-4105-49_C9-99_BC-05800_A2492_E

As this was my first NMF scheme, I primed the build with AKI black base. I then obtained a set of homemade masks from. A mate of mine with a silhouette cutter and placed these prior to the AKI Extreme Metal 479 Aluminium:

The results are not too bad:

I edited this to get the images up on the page.

The sub assemblies are also being done:

This is the current state of play as I am away for 10 days:

Thanks Gents,

In reality she’s good at a metre, closer not so much as far as the NMF is concerned in some places. Still a very good build experience with few vices. Good enough to warrant a return with another kit already purchased and a slew of Eduard AM to put in it. I view these as practice for the 1/32 kits I have stashed and looking at the new Revell.

Question is how long do we  practice? I have the Tamiya 1/32 P-51, but too scared to attempt it. Looking at your build, I think I must drop down to 1/72 again :doh:  Heaven forbid I try my 1/24 Mosquito.

Welcome back,

Rested from holidays, it was time to get back to the bench. I masked the flying surfaces and a couple of upper fuselage panels and sprayed them with AKI Extreme Metal Polished Aluminium. I then masked the anti glare panel with MM Olive Drab enamel:

17_C598_AE-16_B8-4170-9742-485_CA8254_C3

Next up is the masking for the US insignia and tail serials.

That’s a nice result! Hopefully mine will end up as good. I may resort to masking the serial, so if I do, you are more than welcome to the decals if you want them.

Thanks for the offer... Ill leave it as is..

 

If I do another P-51D in 1/48th it'll be the Meng Kit probably in RCAF markings... Or another Tamiya... How are you finding the Airfix kit??

 

Cheers

 

John

I like it John,

There are some small items such as the seat and wheels that Ijust don’t like but all in all an excellent kit.

Well the US insignia are on. My first attempt at multi part masking so I wasn’t expecting perfect but happy with the result:
