Some progress on the Wurger. Was afraid it would gather too much dust and disappear. Rivets applied on the belly. Ready for some RLM fun
3. June, 20:14
While the belly is still at work, I designed this mask and sprayed it right away. Ppl should now know where to walk on the wings and stop putting foo.. fingerprints all over it

Exhaust stains still at wip on the belly, fuselage ones are hard to spot over the black, but are giving a greyish tone over it with natural light.

Looking extremely nice.

Thank you Clifford, very kind of you sir.
While someboring surface repair work is happening on the wings, I also worked on something motivating on the belly. Liquid stains over the airflow grime.

The additional work on the cockpit panels really makes it go 3D. Also love the technique to bring out the rivers, but I'm not sure I trust myself with mineral spirits on a fresh paint job.
5. May, 13:28
Rivets, gotta love spell check
5. May, 13:44
Hi JW, thanks for your nice comment.
As for the mineral spirit, over enamel I would not dare this, but over lacquer it does really act like a softener. Doesnt disolve the paint (like when you spread panel liner) but makes it easier to rub and scratch.

Been after a 1:32 Fw190 A5 kit for ages. Love what you're doing with this. going to be a stunner
5. May, 16:26
Thanks for the word Alan 🙂
Indeed, I didnt realized how scarce they had become... I was wise buying them when they were released.

Looking very nice.

Thank you Clifford. Been able to start the fuselage. Right side was a total mess so I have to do it again. Left side makes me happier. First mottling job in my modeling life... needless to say I was anxious to get to this point

Patrick Hagelstein
The mottling looks great! Cool to see the difference between the heavier dots and the faint squiggles. A lot of trigger control here. 👍

Clifford Keesler
Looking very good.

Thank you Clifford and Patrick! Much appreciated.

This weekend was christening ceremony. (Some would say christling for a bad joke) the lady's got markings and a name !

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 2020, 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 2020, 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 2020, 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

Fantastic! I really like how you've displayed it too!
26. November 2020, 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

nice job. did you cut the mask for the "big beautifu doll" by hand, or with one of those cameo machines?
11. March 2020, 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 2020, 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 2020, 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 2020, 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

Super. Zo begaafd ben ik niet.

she looks simply stunning
28. October 2020, 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 2020, 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.

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 2020, 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
