North American P-51B
Tamiya's 1/48 scale P-51B is

Here is my 1/48 scale P-51B "Shangri-La" as flown by Cpt.
Don Gentile in early 1944.
The model is the from Tamiya. It is easy to build and
wonderful in detail. I addeda resin cockpit from Hi-Tech and new wheels from
True Details. The rest is straight from the box.
The finish is airbrushed with colors from Xtracolor, but
the decals are out of the box (a little thick but still okay).
After a coat of varnish I started weathering the panel
lines with watercolors.
