    These planes and their color schemes are so nifty! Great work, David! Wish I had the ability to crank 'em out as you do

    All the best,

    Love the razor-backed 'Stangs and Thunderbolts too!)! Again, these make me wish I could go 1/144, but too much sunk in the "official" scale.

    I agree, Karl - the early P-51s without the bubble canopy are very cool - and the OD scheme is so iconic...

    Well done, indeed!

    Not my area of expertise Kevin, but those Mustangs do look spectacular in formation. Neat job!
    The cards for them look great too Mike.

    These are my P-51 Mk. III from Scotia Grendel.
    They will harass enemy planes in the European and Med front one of these days.

    And two Mustang IIIs of 19 Squadron somewhere over France, early May 1944. Shapeways FUD models (AE Models) with AA prop discs. Paints used were Vallejo and Italeri, while the decals were from Mehusla (the set is intended for 19 Squadron Spitfire I/IIs in 1940-1941; so far I've used it for 1942 Spitfire Vs and 1944 Mustangs flown by the squadron. One of these days I'll put it to proper use ).

    Good Day Chaps! Stellar Work in here!

    Here are some of my efforts on Scotia Grendel Minis, still sourcing for the proper decals in 1/200 in London:

    Mustang Mk1A (I know, no 20mm guns, i need to find a suitable item to substitute)

    and a Red Tails P-51D

    I have four AIM Mustangs to finish up, this just prompts me to get stuck in to them sooner rather than later.

    A couple of AIM P-51B's, "Ding Hao!" and (with an attempted modification to the canopy) "The Iowa Beaut." The Ding Hao decal is actually 1/144 scale - nice to actually be able to see what I put on the side of a fighter for a change. Click image for larger version.

    Guys,
    I have been rooting through my Battle of Britain Starter Set doing Ace Skill and Equipment cards, and noticed something. The Plane card I did up for Kinninmont is using the Axis colors for the info boxes. So, upgrading was necessary:

    Nice clean paint job, Ross. I thought the canopy came out too blue, then I noticed the nose was rather dark, so probably the camera?

    Here is my first shot at some P51s. They are from the 78th Fighter Group. I took some artistic liberty with tail and tip colors for ease of game play. The correct color is black.

    The decals were very challenging to get lined up. That was way harder than the very basic paint color scheme.

    Thanks Peter. I was really happy with the windshields. Whenever I look at Mustang, or other bubble cockpit pictures, the windows always look dark.

    Using the slick metal paint as the base allowed the paint to flow nicely for a realistic look. When I use blue background, the wash absorbs into it and just makes it darker.
