You guys are going to get sick of these Mustangs! But I could not resist, right on the heels of finishing my Hobbycraft Mk.1, I got into the Revel Kit.

Decals I am using..."Flying Dutchman"

Step 1...Throw away Revell box and put all the sprues in a Hasegawa box leftover from my Ki84 build.

So far I have just cut all the cockpit parts off the sprues, de-burred and cleaned them up, primered, and sprayed on XF5. I still have to go and spray some lightened up XF5 for highlights.

lol!  That made me laugh. I dont really know of a single person who likes the side opening Revell boxes. What a PITA!

I just picked up the recent re-release of their older P-51B, and it has a conventional lid-and-bottom-tray box, and the decal/paint scheme option for a "Blue-Nose'r". ;)

I am still on the look out for a reusable plastic box with a lid that can be stacked, big enough to hold most kits while they are being worked and waiting.

Way too small. I'm looking for something around 18x12x6. Either they are too flimsy, or they have dividers.

An alternative

 

Tape up the end flaps, turn the box upside down, then cut down one edge

 

Instant hinged lid!

It's nice to see another Revell Mustang being built rather than just disappearing into the stash, and like most people I am not fond of the end opening Revell boxes, I just cut out the picture on the box top and tape up the ends, or as you are doing use a box from a completed kit.

 

Cheers

I'm building one too

 

In a highly unusual deviation for me, I have zero research material, damn all info on how it should look and am having a ball! Maybe it isn't 'right' however it is fun

 

Much like a paint-by-numbers 3D jigsaw puzzle

Nothing exciting, just painting.

I am playing with gray, green and yellow pastels here. Green is invisible, gray and yellow look similar.
