Cheers Andy, and to carry on here's a 'small' update.


Basic build and painting should be finished tomorrow, then they get a coat of Klear ready for decals which will have to wait until next week.

They look great.
Are they both going to be in American markings ?

Thanks Andy, yes both American they are the P-51's as flown by the two pilots pictured below.


Top is Capt Don Gentile (red nosed P-51) and the bottom is Lt. Col James Howard (white nosed and Malcom hood)
Capt Gentile's P-51 will be finished as seen on its last flight with red wheel outers and no horizontal stabilizer white bands.
Below is a close up of Lt. Col J Howard's markings

Ok next days progress.

And a little something I'm also working on at the same time for the Fabulous Phantoms campaign.
