1/48 Collect Aire P-51H


The vacform canopy was very clear.  I posed it closed to highlight the shape of the P-51H, which was not at all the same as the earlier Mustangs.  The planform,
airfoil section, and fuselage shape are all different.  More in common with the F-82.  The wing and stabilizer were both one piece, and the vertical
fin was combined with the upper rear fuselage.  Not a bad way to do it in resin.  The radiator housing was also a separate part.  I hollowed out the
inlet to improve the look.  The red commander's stripes were supplied in decal form, but I masked and painted them.  SNJ and Tamiya paints were used.
