Some attention is necessary to guarantee a decent fit or we are going to have lot of troubles with joints. In the end it will look like a early P-51 Mustang The beginning (cockpit what else...) All parts were removed from the spruce and prepared for primer and interior colo

Painting with the first stage of weathering ( oils ) Finished model And the
