I have never done anything in such a big scale
I guess you can almost test-sit the cockpit in 1:24... Looking good, expectations connected to build owners reputation are being met...
6. August 2019 at 19:33:00
Indeed! This will be a rather impressive bird(s)- merely with its size.
Charming words, Slavo- and very motivating ones!

My little flock of Mustangs is still growing
I will have to bent the wings careful to form a slight resemble of the Mustangs dihedral. The unaltered kit shows wings completely even- that does not look good!

"The more danger, the more honor".... that's the most positive thing I can think of

When there is no suitable group build around, Roland creates one at home...
Nice work-in progress collection and progress - you will be able to do some cool fake-perspective shots with them once done in the different scales...
How were the model monkey parts? Is the material easy to work with?

Looking Awesome! You're having fun with this Old Airfix Classic, Keep up the great work.
13. August 2019 at 15:05:46
Thank you Slavo and John! Splendid idea with the fake-perspective, Slavo, I will give it a try!
Model monkeys parts are a joy to work with; I will present pictures of the cowling and exhausts as soon as I have mounted them, tomorrow perhaps. Well, the fit is impressive anyway.

Both Mustangs have taken a few steps further... On one I succeeded in finishing all the overflowing filling and sanding; this one is the topic of the new pictures. I guess I will be able to apply the black priming for the first coat of Alclad tomorrow. The second P-51 is still awaiting sanding of the fuselage; the wings have been treated.

A late night update: a few pictures of the surfaces being in the progress of getting their final appearance.

Thank you Bart, some new progress pics will further illustrate this rather demanding projects soon.

How did I miss this?! Looking good, Roland!
Taking a seat.

Your words have motivated me through this weekend- here are a few new pictures, showing the actual status of both Mustangs. I am quite keen to get the "CAM" decals on the bare metal one. It will display the markings of "Skeeters Scooter", a colourful P-51 flown by pilot McAlevy in 1944.

After following the Gate-guard Tunnan, I definitely keep my eye on any NMF work coming from your corner - the base looks superb, really looking forward to the further treatment!

Your words are a pleasure to me- thank you Stephan, Slavo and Bart!
"Skeeter´s Scooter" turns into the home straight. There is not left much to do- except the prop and some finishing touches.

A Mustang is a nice bird, so this model due to capable hands too
6. October 2019 at 18:30:08
I love how these two are coming out, making me want to get going on my two. Perhaps once the aggressor group build is done

I'm a Lover of the Pony ! Whether it has wings,wheels or hooves ! Beautiful !
6. October 2019 at 19:23:40
Thank you all mates and guys! That´s motivating- and I actually need some kick in the.... to get these two done
7. October 2019 at 05:32:25
Looks great so far!
7. October 2019 at 06:06:11
Can´t imagine that looking at the model is not kicking enough - in case it is not, be aware that we want to see it finished in a group pic with the little bro´s so keep it coming!
7. October 2019 at 08:36:49
Thank you Jim and Slavo! Actually I am looking forward to this gathering of Mustangs, Slavo
Even better: a few more should join in in the foreseeable future: Revells 1:32 early P-51D is at the start- as a Trumpeter P-51B of the same scale.
8. October 2019 at 08:43:44
Nice! I´ve got the Revell 1:32 in stash for a future "Cadillac of the Skies" scene flyby vignette from the "Empire of the Sun" movie... Appears to be a rather nice kit, will probably just build it OOB + pilot... Some time in the 2020´ies
8. October 2019 at 09:17:18
A great movie and and a impressive scene Slavo! Good choice- I am looking forward to that!
10. October 2019 at 18:25:19
The first Mustang was tamed- or should I say finally mastered?- the second one will be saddled this weekend and should be presentable as well in a few days.
I hope you like the pictures of "Scooters Skeeter" - for me two of these old Airfix kit-veterans are definitely enough
12. October 2019 at 12:06:17
Great result Roland, very impressive.
13. October 2019 at 07:14:05
13. October 2019 at 08:42:59
.... and here comes the second one: "Edmonton´s Special" has been done in parallel with wheels up, with no aftermarket stuff but some- so I hope- home made improvements. Turning prop has been simulated with transparent sheet and airbrush.
I hope you like it!

Nice work Roland. Love the markings and the prop looks very realistic.
13. October 2019 at 15:50:55
I can only dream of pulling off that level of detail & finish, an inspiration, thanks for sharing!
13. October 2019 at 16:16:58
Roland, that is fantastic!
13. October 2019 at 16:34:53
What a fantastic work and Presentation Roland.
13. October 2019 at 16:43:03
Another Mustang triumph Roland, excellent.
13. October 2019 at 16:59:06
Well done. Very cool idea and execution on the prop.
13. October 2019 at 18:09:05
I have to agree with Jim J !! Beautifully done!

Wieder eine Augenweide. A joy to watch this build!

Thanks to all of you mates for these great and enjoyable comments! That makes me happy - and will continue to make me a little more experimental!

that is a nice thing with the prop, had to look a few times how you did it... looks much better than any prop-blur seen till now. Also the models are exquisite...

Ganz schön Mustanglastig bei Dir. Hast Gefallen gefunden, wa?
18. October 2019 at 07:28:55
It was a great pleasure and honour for me to meet the builder amidst his models in Ried
The pictures are great, but in real the birds are looking even better!

Your words are true motivations pusher and I am quite happy and proud! Dear "bughunter", it was a great honor and joy for me!
21. October 2019 at 16:59:07
Roland - would you care to explain how you produced that rather convincing "spinning prop" of the in-flight model? Was it "just" a matter of fashioning wide replacements for the blades and painting them with a blurring effect?
30. October 2019 at 11:11:10
Roland - great and inspirational build - as always.
I'm also interested in how you created the spinning prop effect
28. November 2019 at 06:17:47
Thank you both mates! I'm taken with your interest. What could I explain? In fact, I cut the transparent film into shape and then carefully treated it with the airbrush. It was important to me that the edges of the foil didn't form a hard paint burn. This is different with the outer yellow propeller seats - these should end on the outside with an edge. I am happy you like the outcome!
By the way- I have tried this technique on a Bf 109 some time ago, look her if you are interested: Bf 109 G-6, JG 52 "Barkhorn"/ Trumpeter / | Album by Roland (1:24)

Thanks, Roland - "transparent film" is the clue I was looking for.
