After a long time away from the forum for health problems, I'm back with this old kit Hasegawa P-51D. It's very old kit, with raised lines, poor details and other issues. But as all the old hasegawa kits is accurated. And as I bought some time ago a lot of PEs for this kit, I think I'll get a reasonable result. This is the kit: These are the PE sets that I Have: I'm not intend to use all of them, only the necessary. The remain parts will be left for any other Mustang. I will use too a resin wheel set, by True Details: The version to be executed will be the plane nº44-15569, piloted by Ltn. Roscoe Brown, in the exceptional 322 Squadron, the "Tuskegee Armein" at Lamiteli, Italy, March 1945. The markings will be painted in the kit using a mask set designed by me for this. And to start the kit, I raised the correct lines and removed the rivets of the fuselage and wings, then rebuilding some rivets in the fuselage, as would be the real plane. Then I began to detail the basement of weapons, with the PE set. And as the set only has the machine guns part, I closed the cover of the cartridges because it would be with a much lower quality than the parts with PEs: These PEs caused me a lot of extra work because they are designed to the Dragon Kit. The fitting are poor, and I has to reshape them to fit in the Hase kit. Thias caused some torsion in some PEs. But as the rough parts will be covered with the guns, I left them as is. So I sawed off the flaps to let them lowered. I simply could not resist to start the cockpit assembly, then I solded the PE seat and glued this to the cockpit part. Soon, I will be posting new pictures.
