Another model that is here at home for a long time. A P-51 D Tamiya in 1/32 scale. I think it is time to try to finish it. I have the parts of engine  and of the interior already glued.

 

How not like to build natural metal models will try to get a sheet of decals with other colors. I have met one, I have done the order and just hope that is still in stock.

 

The model.

Thank Doogs ATX. Already managed to get a sheet of decals. P-51D Mustang EagleCals EC-102 and intend to do the version «Ol Flak Joe».

 

I started the engine. I was gluing by parts ...

Wonder fittings. Almost do not notice where the parts were glued. I'll have to sand to rectify the error.

Looking forward to this one!

 

I hope to tackle my first 1/32 Tamiya later this year and will do the P-51, but not NMF as well - I'll be doing Passion Wagon I hope - overall RAF Dark Green top but heavily weathered, so maybe more difficult than NMF!

Thanks cib2265  :) .

 

Continuing. And after I glued the engine started to interior that is what I like. Here little to glue only the two small parts in PE, the sides of the seat. I used the Interior Green mixture of Tamiya paints XF3 (2) and XF 5 (1).

Thank you  :unworthy:  and I think that this model well worth the money I paid for it.

And it's almost. Amazing how everything fits right and nothing is glued.

I did not like the additional deposits painting. This time first painted glossy black, then aluminum.

 

P-51%20D%20171.jpg

 

P-51%20D%20172.jpg

 

Machine guns. Painted black and then a kind of dry brush with graphite.

 

P-51%20D%20173.jpg

 

Flaps and ailerons.

 

P-51%20D%20174.jpg

Once'll let the engine covers open the air duct missing.

A few more pieces aluminum.
