 Nice…….finished by next Saturday………..???……

Well maybe not quite that soon. LOL However, I already had a Trumpeter "B" started and will redirect the build which will speed things up. :)

OMG, you're on an incredible roll. Great choice for your next racer.

I should have hired you you to be charge of my reno crew - we would have been done by now but unfortunately a good ways still to go. Hoping to be done in a about four to six weeks and then by then, I'm willing to bet, you'll have modeled almost all the Racer in the Draw Decal Line.

Keep 'em comin

Staying busy for sure Peter. Too bad this Trumpeter kit isn't of Tamiya quality but it is what it is. I'll get all the needed mods done and proceed with the build. I hope it will be another eye catcher! 😉

Nice work so far, John.  I think you need to jump back on that Sherman to slow yourself down a bit.  The rest of us can't keep up.

LOL Gaz! The Sherman sits on the shelf staring at me as if to say just that. LOL I'll get back to it before long. :)

This particular P-51 had the dorsal fin which is a little unusual for the B/C birds. I have some resin conversion rear fuselage parts with the dorsal fin but, instead of trying to splice the whole rear end, I decided to remove the required part from one of the pieces and graft it on to the kit rear end. Seems to fit fairly well.

Nice progress on yet another cool looking racer.

(I still need 2 Tamiya exhaust stacks, part #J19 for this bird. Anybody?)

I have the exhausts if you still need them John. 

I had to check the subject that I was doing to see if I needed the shrouded or unshrouded exhausts. 

Let me know and I can pop them in the mail for you.

Holy smokes the tail fillet looks perfect- now that's sweet for sure.

It worked out well Peter with just a bit of "adjusting". I wish I could remember who it was I got those from a while back but can't. (Lots of other stuff I can't remember too! LOL)
