Thanks, I was trying to go minimal with the weathering, because I was trying to depict a newly built F-6A, flying over Normandy during the invasion. These aircraft were rebuilt specifically for this Task and were kept in reserve until the landings, so my theory was that this aircraft would have been spotless on the morning of June 6. They did get beat up later in the following weeks and as they started operating from improvised airfields in France.

Sadly, this is the second and probably the last Hobbycraft Mustang I will build because they are getting to be so hard to find anymore, or the prices are astronomical. Someday, if I find an A-36 Apache, I may build a very early version with the 2-tone camo and American markings.
