Revell P-51D "Short Fuse" finished


Recommended Posts

Calling this one done. Those Revell kits are nice but they do have their problems. See here for "fixes": https://forum.largescalemodeller.com/topic/19047-more-revell-p-51d-fixs/

I decided to model Dick Turner's last a/c "Short Fuse". There are no decals in 1/32 for it so I made my own using my computer and laser printer. I'm pleased with the final results (after re-doing the name about a dozen times!). Painted with Alclad. National insignia is from the kit. I hope you like it! :)

Awesome build and the finish is meticulous and perfect. I find it amazing how you create the decals on your pc (way beyond my abilities) and the high level you continue to work, at the pace you do. Best of all is the fixes you shared with us regarding the major issue of the Revell kit.

Beautifully done

Thanks Peter. I appreciate the nice comments. I'm pleased with the way the model turned out. I'm considering another "B" conversion but need another Revell "D" fuselage to take the nose off for transplant on to a Trumpeter "B" fuselage. I hate to buy a kit just to use the nose but maybe someone here might have what I need. We'll see. :)
