Welcome to Large Scale Modeller: The home of the large scale military model builder. 

Recommended Posts

Here we go! 

I will be building one of the F6A's that took pictures for the D-Day landings and were one of the first squadrons to be based out of France to support the push inland. I dont have any pictures of the exact plane yet, but it will be AX-C or AX-D, which so far it seems does not have any nose art.

I am using the Hobbycraft Mk.1a, the guns will be removed and the holes faired over. It will have a camera and the Malcom hood.

I have two Eduard detail sets for the Trumpeter Mustang that will be donated to this build, Cockpit and Placards.

I have not decided yet if it will be in-flight or sitting on the ground...TBD.

All Markings will be painted from masks, custom and generic.

Don’t worry, I’ll probably do a tank too!

If I could find decals for "The Stars Look Down", I might consider converting Revell's P-51 B for this GB...

I'm excited about this, Mark.  This was a highly utilized aircraft throughout Overlord and beyond.  After my truck's done (after the Lanc), I have an MDC Tiffie I've been chipping away at that would be good company to your F-6A.  If time allows, I'll be onboard

I can’t start until I finish my two kits for the Nats. After then, it’s go time.

yup, me too. The Lanc is full time now. Tomorrow is Duild all day Day, followed by the weekend.  Hopefully, much will get done.

Although, this build will go quick, it’s being built OOB mostly, the last P-51A I built took about 6 weeks.
