North American P-51B
Tamiya's 1/48 scale P-51B Mustang is available online from Squadron.com
I recently finished Tamiya's 1/48th scale P-51B Mustang, built
out of the box using decals from Aeromaster Sheet 48-211 "Fighting Mustangs
P-51B Part 1".
The only problem I had with the decals was the fit of the sharks
mouth. It was not precut to allow for the curvature of the lower cowling - it
was a real bear to get on and look right.
Paints used were Modelmaster Olive Drab for the anti-glare panel
and Modelmaster Aluminum Non-Buffing for the overall bare metal color. A few
panels were masked and sprayed with Micro Flat to achieve a tone look.
Exhaust and gun residue streaks were done with black pastel
