Currently working on another Tamiya P-51D (my 8th). Here is the scheme I plan to use. As these markings aren't available in 1/32 I've made them by scanning a 1/48 Aero Master sheet, resizing and then printing on clear decal paper with my laser printer. WIP photos soon.

It's been about 3 weeks so I guess it's time for a couple of pics. Cockpit just about completed (I haven't attached the throttle yet because I'm sure I'd knock it off and lose it as the build progresses).

This is looking nice, John. I remember Peter's and your builds. They inspired me to build one too.

 

Thanks Ernie. The crappy photos really don't do it justice as it looks much better "in person" LOL. :)
