Accurate Miniatures P-51

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Finished this one right before New Year's for a Christmas gift for a friend. It's the AM 1/48 Tuskegee version of the kit, found on clearance for $15 at the local Hobby Lobby! I was going to do the Tuskegee scheme, since the gift was for someone from Alabama, but I couldn't really get into it. So I went for a Checkertail Clan aircraft, and found a sideview drawing of Major Roy Hogg's (six kills) a/c. I don't believe the nickname is in the right font, but everything else seems to look ok. I couldn't get decals for the tail in time, so I painted them on. I am not a big fan of the Mustang (I believe the Corsair is better :smiley20: ), but it is a good looking a/c and I really enjoy the AM kits! This is the second of their Mustangs that I've built (their F-6B is the other one).

 

Thanks

Glenn

I love checkertails! It's even more impressive since you painted them perfectly. What NMF did you use? It looks sharp! Nice 'Stang!
