Hello Rui, Clifford, Patrick & Murad. Welcome to this build log. I have been busy on the computer a lot for the Dora, but this part will be unfolded later. For the good old modeling, I got my pawns on the beautiful Eagle parts cockpit. It will mostly be kept for a later build as the installation requires heavy mod on stock parts to get fitted. However it serves as an inspiration for recreating the most visible parts that needs enhancements: the back of the seat, map holder and so on. The ip is the magnificent yahu. Hardest thing now is to get the right RLM66 mix to blend the ip in. Cheers

Hi Felix, Welcome along.
I found some spare time to crack open the magnificent Airscale Placards and Instruments. I think it does really bring life to any cockpit.
RLM66 is such a pain to photograph, it was impossible to get a decent pic with the phone.

Clifford Keesler
Very nice cockpit.
15. November, 18:20
Hi Clifford, thank you for your encouragements!
Last pics before the fuselage closing. The removable motor pod contains one mini dc motor and the cr123 holder. It does connect to the switch wich is hidden under the hole on the upper cowling, I guess it's the crank starter hole on the real thing. The upper seatbelts aren't worked out yet as I intend to put them lying on the fuselage sides. Next big chapter is onto the wheel wells. Cheers

Nicely done!

Il est très beau ce P51 bravo, juste une chose pour être un peu critique, je trouve qu'il a pas assez de vieillissement sur le decal damiers sur le nez de l'appareil ca semble neuf, alors que sur le reste de l'appareil c'est très subtile j'aime bcp. Ou trouves tu cette tige transparente pour que l'appareil soit en suspension stp. J'aime bien cette présentation sur un socle brut en bois. Bravo et merci pour cette présentation.
28. March, 16:06
Hi Tim. Thank you. I am glad you like it.

Bonjour Pierre. Merci pour le commentaire. En effet c'est un parti pris car toutes les photos d'époque de cette monture montrent un damier très propre (comme la plupart des autres mustang du 78th Group) la seule usure visible est sur les vis de montage du capot (Que j'aurais pu représenter alu je le conçois) l'état général de l'engin est toujours très bon et je trouve que j'ai même été un peu loin sur le vieillissement. D'où le contraste avec le nez.

Les tiges en polycarbonate sont commandés sur un shop eBay en Angleterre. Je peux te donner le lien en mp.

Pour le socle j'aurais voulu un socle en acajou comme sur mon spit précédent mais les magasins de bricolage sont tous fermés en ce moment particulier..
Au plaisir et merci pour ton retour.
28. March, 18:08
B Pierre
OK merci pour les informations Mathieu concernant le P51 sur les photos d'époque. Pour ce qui est des socles je vais m en inspirer j ai ce qu il faut en arbre chez moi pour me les fabriquer. Oui je veux bien que tu donnes le liens Ebay concernant les tiges.
As tu eu des problèmes particuliers pour l assemblage de ce kit Eduard?
Allez hop je l ajoute dans ma liste d envie.
A bientôt et merci.
28. March, 22:33
Pm Envoyé,
Concernant l'assemblage, comme sur tous, attention au joint Aile fuselage. De plus vu que je montais l'avion en vol, j'ai omis l'assemblage de la baie de train, grave erreur car je n'avais pas le bon profil d'aile une fois monté, j'ai du rattraper le profil avec des cales, grosse galère...
Sinon ça se monte tout seul

Brett P
Fantastic! I really like how you've displayed it too!
26. November, 22:10
Hi Mark. Thank you. As you can see I also recopied the wrong outline on the exhausts on this build. This was corrected in the 1/32 build of this machine. You did a very nice work on your side. Cheers

Excellent work, beautiful model
3. November, 21:20
Thank you James, Spanjaard, Sebastian, Eelco, Stefan & Rui for your very kind words. They are much appreciated. I feel a bit lost for now as this is a project I was very fond of, and it is going to be hard to find another long term build that keeps a steady mojo level. I am leaning toward the Focke-Wulf factory for an attractive scheme. Cheers
4. November, 21:51
What a beautiful build! That's stunning Matthieu, you did a fantastic job
4. November, 21:55

Yes. A Focke-Wulf is a great idea ;) I'm already in :D

nice job. did you cut the mask for the "big beautifu doll" by hand, or with one of those cameo machines?
11. March, 11:47
Slavo Hazucha
You really are dedicated to work on one particular aircraft type - I wonder how many "shades of Stang" you can produce... ;)

Very much like the job on the wings, the structure and pattern of the weathering seems to hit what is seen on some pictures really well

Xavier B
Merci pour ce beau partage, très inspirant pour mon futur montage !
11. March, 15:27
Hi mates. Thank you for your kind words.

Spanjaard. There is no way I could cut so precisely. I designed the cutting pattern under the silhouette software using various decals sheets, profiles and period pictures. The cameo3 then did the job. I just still need to find the correct setting for cutting the small crosses on the victory board.

Slavo, yes ! Some could say I am ocd :-D I can not contest that. I would rather say I have phases. Few years back I was building focke wulf, then I had my spitfire time. I have still a few mustang to finish before I can say I am done with the subject. Btw I am still waiting to follow your rendition of the Cadillac of the sky.

Xavier, merci cher compatriote, content qu'il te plaise j'y mets pas mal de cœur. J'espère pouvoir suivre ton montage également ! Au plaisir
11. March, 20:34
Thanks, I have been thinking in getting one if those silhouette machines....

Mathieu, alvast schitterend werk met het detail in de vleugels en cockpit. In de cockpit is toch een deel scratchbuild of niet? Super
29. April, 21:39
Hi Gunther, Thanks for your kind words. There is a few scratch in the cockpit. mainlay the wiring and piping. Placards are from barracuda, seatbelts are HGW and the IP is from Yahu. Cheers

Günther Decock
Super. Zo begaafd ben ik niet.
30. April, 14:39
she looks simply stunning
28. October, 10:53
Ha, Thank you Spanjaard :)
The nose is just holding together with the magnet, I still want to add the Merlin, but struggling with the motivation in front of all the piping. I notice a lot of small paint correction looking a the pics, so i have an excuse to delay it further :)

I agree, loking great all arround
14. September, 19:42
Thanks gentlemen. Last update can not be fully appreciated on this platform but I think it is rather cool (see the link below) current progress is on the wings as I am in a stall on the fuselage waiting for the resin pilot figure lagging in the postal services.

Absolutely stunning work so far
6. October, 08:37
Slavo Hazucha
wow - what will come next - puffs of smoke and mini-loudspeakers? ;)

The engine really is a piece of art, with the data-sheets and wear... hope it does not stay hidden behind the cowling permanently!
6. October, 09:20
Welcome Spanjaard Sebastian & Slavo :) I much appreciate your comments.
About the engine, yes the side panel should not be glued, I still have to work out a solution for this part.

Point of no return has been reached with the scheme main decals dipped. Wish me luck.. Cheers

Beautiful build. Might give me the confidence to try riveting mine.

Slavo Hazucha
Nice details, dash & seatbelts particularly looking good - The conversion here is basically the tail-swap, or is there more modding?
20. June 2019, 11:58
Thank you Slavo. I need to redo the upper belts as I want to display them rolled over the armor plate as often seen on photos. For a complete conversion. The dashdoard is of the late type, but doesnt exist (yet) for the Revell. This one is a eduard for tami modded to fit. Next I need to change a few console on the right cockpit. The panel under the engine needs engraving. And I have to search the a correct rear canopy and a late gun sight. Cheers and thank you for your interest.
