Tamiya's 1/32 scale P-51D Mustang is available onine from Squadron

 

Description

 

Here is my 1/32 Tamiya P-51D-5 NA Mustang finished in the markings of LOU IV from 361st Fighter Group, 375th Squadron, 8th Air Force.

This plane was flown by Lt. Col. Thomas Christian during summer of 1944 in England from Bottisham Airfield (located 5 miles east of Cambridge).

 

 

There is no need to talk about the model. Everybody knows what it is. I can describe it as “fantastic”.

I started to built with cockpit components as usual. The cockpit was painted interior green and finished straight from the box.

 

 

I decided to add some modification on the wheel wells. Some lead wire from “Plus Model” used in this area to upgrade details.

 

 

Tyres replaced by Barracuda Studio P-51 Mustang diamond tread tires.

 

 

Painting was done with Gunze Sangyo acrylics and Alclad metalizers.

The camouflage color of LOUIV was a mystery for years. But due to general concensus LOUIV was a natural metal aircraft with upper surfaces field painted dark green.

The upper surfaces invasion stripes were painted Olive Drab, which is a lighter tone than Dark green.

Decals are from EagleCals #EC140.

Happy modelling!
