I have always liked the Bout One Mustangs of the ROK AF so now that Tamiya has provided us with the needed decals and bits needed to build one I'm going to get with the program and model this one flown by Dean Hess. Should make a eye catching model. :)

Having built a trio of Tamiya Mustangs, finding a unique scheme and markings keeps adding to the variety of markings and interest. Going to be a great build to follow.

Keep 'e comin

Yes indeed Peter. This will be my 9th! Close behind the Corsairs LOL. :)

I hadn't realized I'd built so many until I decided I better count 'em! LOL P-51's and Corsairs are like rabbits around here! :)

Just a thought but maybe you can mount a light weight plexiglass or two on the wall above your glass display cases.

Thanks Peter. Unfortunately that will not work. :unsure:

Nice! Looking forward to see your progress! Are you planning on using the kit decals or do you source the markings from somewhere else  / masks?

I plan to use the kit decals although I do have some after market ones which are for his later markings.

Interesting! I'm very curious to see how they'll look, once on the model. I always hear horror stories about the being too thick. Interestingly enough, Cartograf decals are not the thinnest, either, but I have never seen anybody griping about them. Or I just haven't seen them doing it! :D

I've used Tamiya kit decals many times. I would prefer them to be a bit thinner but they are still usable.
