Thanks Roland! I'm going to roll with it. I can always add some green oil filter on it to tint it a bit. And it gets not just an engine, but REAL MERLIN SOUND synced with the engine!!! Check it out: Youtube Video

This is looking great and I love the electronics. On the cockpit green - I read a great article about the colour used and basically it's pretty hard to find two cockpits that match in real life. Colour tones were quite different from a vibrant green to a yellowish green. I think the oil filters will do a great job.

This project suffered a major setback, but I've got a vision and so I'm pressing on... sort of. I had the base green laid down and then added some masking stickers to get the camo right. I applied them and removed them to see if there'd be a problem pulling paint and tests seemed okay. Leaving it overnight may have been the issue because when I got around to painting the dark earth and removing the masks I lost a lot of paint (but gained a lot of sticky gunk, yay). I tried removing the paint & gunk, but I wasn't able to get it off to my satisfaction, so I'm chalking it up to lessons learned and starting with a fresh kit. The decision came when I realized it'd become a chore instead of fun. Extreme, maybe, but I've got a test model to work with now plus all I learned during the first go around.

Looks nice. Hope you can polish out the tape marks. I always de-tack my tape some when masking NMF's just stick the tape to the top of your hand a few times.

Ok, stick a fork in this build cause I'm calling it done!

I decided against doing a panel wash on this one, because I was too afraid I'd screw up the paint even using an acrylic wash. To be honest, I'm not sure it really needed one anyhow.

Looking at the photos, there are a few decals I may treat with Mr. Marksofter to try to take care of some slight silvering, and I do need to fix one of the gear bay door position. But those are minor things that are more repairs than adding to the build.

Overall, I'm fairly pleased with how this came out, especially since it's my first (completed) aircraft build and my first extensive bare metal finish. I like the lightly weathered look it's got, and I think it'll make a decent addition to the display case.

Thanks to you all for the encouragement and advice!

Looks great Paul. I've been doing aircraft for years and I'm still terrified of metal finishes. The fact that you took it on for your first is a big THUMBS UP!

Hey everyone! I'm hoping you can answer a P-51D question for me. On the underside of the starboard wing, there are three circles. I only really noticed them because the mask kit I got has masks for them.

What are the three circles and what color should they be?

Hi Paul, These lights (if my memories are right) are identification lights (friend from foe). The colors are red, amber and green.

Thanks for the kind words guys. I just finished this guy last night and took some photos in the light box. Not good photos, mind you. I'm a modeler not a photographer.

This build took forever. Well, the build was quick as Gunpla tend to be, but the paint job took far too long. I did an experiment to see if painting section by section to completion would be better (more fun?) than just painting the whole thing in one fell swoop. So I panted a leg, then another leg, then an arm, etc.

The experiment has concluded and the results are in - NO! Don't do that again!

Not only was it de-motivating for me, but I improved my skills and changed some materials (switched to MLT, tried a different acrylic varnish, etc.) which I think gives the model an overall uneven look aside from the asymmetrical paint. I'm especially mad at the acrylic varnish from Mig because it tended to peel off. Next time I'll use Aquagloss even though it has the scary "Clean your Airbrush Fast or Else!" warning on the side.

I'm happy this one's finished, but I'm not ecstatic with the result.

Thanks Kim. I did some chipping, but I think it's time to move on to another project. I was getting burnt out on this one. But who knows, maybe I'll come back to it and add some grime one of these days.

I agree that it still came out fine, and you're right about coming back later to weather it if you want to.
