Since it was "Mustang Madness" week on the D&S FB page, I started this 1/48 Tamiya P-51B last Sunday afternoon and finished it this Friday evening, for a 6 day build. It's generally OOTB, though I did add a few doo-dads I had in the box: Moskit exhausts, resin tires, pe seat belts, Eduard resin 75gal wing tanks, a Quickboost resin N2 gun sight, MV lenses for the underwing IFF lights, and individually punched instruments for the featureless kit panel. Markings for the Boise Bee are from Aeromaster. The only drama in the build was when the black hole surrounding my work bench swallowed the left rear fuselage clear panel, forcing me to make another from clear sheet to replace it.

All in all, this was a fun, fast build that puts the stash down one more!

So, do you just have all that extra "stuff" in stock on hand? Most would spend months just trying to assemble all that. Great work, as usual, by the way.

Wow Gil, that’s one sharp looking Mustang, and in six days. Always loved the B model.

RON: Most of those items were in the box when I opened it. As I bought things, I just threw in the box for the future, and last week the future finally arrived!
