Here is Tamiya's 1/48 scale P-51D Mustang.
This bird was built
almost 4 years ago and also straight from box. I painted her overall
with Testor Chrome Silver. Anti-glare section in front of
wind-screen was with Olive Drab. The rest of the model was finished
with Model Mater paints except Matt Cote of Humbrol to reduce the
gloss. The top cote was Testor's Gloss Finish.
For weathering, I had to used 2B pencil for pastel chalk as another
kinds were not go well with gloss paints. Exhaust stains were
painted by airbrush. At that time, I did not know how to deal with
antenna wire so I just left her without one.
Decoration with red and yellow rectangles on nose were painted by
airbrush and masking tape because I had to struggle with decal and
it almost drove me nuts.
Hope you will enjoy my incomplete model.
