Tamiya 1/32 P-51D Mustang - George Preddy

By Jeff Owens

This is the fantastic Tamiya P-51 mustang using Eagle Editions decals. I added a few extra items to the build such as the battery wiring behind the seat, HGW seatbelts, Barracuda cockpit decals and adding a little plumbing for the drop tanks. My Mustang was painted using Alclad dura-aluminum for the wings, aluminum for the airframe and control surfaces and dark aluminum in a few other spots. The black and white invasion strips were by Mr Paint and, the blue nose is from Mr Paint Su-27 dark blue. I added some weathering to it using a Flory wash, and then Tamiya pastels for the exhaust stain and gun ports, then the blue was given a semi-matt finish.
