P-51B Mustang

by Robert Ferrero

North American P-51B Mustang


Tamiya's 1/48 scale P-51B Mustang is available online from Squadron




Every now and then we all want to build and enjoy a subject that practically falls together. The Tamiya P-51B is just such a model. Tamiya's P-51B was first released in 1995 and remains a favorite in the modeling community.

Through trial and error use of a number of Metalizers, I've come to trust SnJ as a basecoat for most all my natural metal finish subjects. The P-51 wears SnJ with Alclad and Model Master panels.

Although there are numerous alternative markings available, I chose to use the kit decals and dress the subject as the "Bonny Bea", of the 339th FS, 504th Fighter Group.
