P-51 D Mustang - a legendMuch has been written about the North American Aviation P-51 Mustang. I can hardly report anything new. For me, the P-51 is one of the most beautiful aircraft from World War II. I was particularly drawn to the many colorful variations of color design. Many pilots gave their machines a special touch.
The role model
A very good site to learn about mission machines is American Air Museum.com
Here you will find a lot of pictures and some additional information. I was able to experience the following there:
- 'Nancy Lee' Production block number
- P-51B-20-NA Manufacturer
- North American Markings and paint scheme/livery
- Coded E6-A.
Blue nose, spinner and anti dazzle panel. Yellow nose air scoop. Blue diagonal stripe on tail vertical surfaces. Blue canopy frame.
A P-51 Mustang (E6-A, serial number 44-72322) nicknamed "Nancy Lee" of the 402nd Fighter Squadron, 307th Fighter Group, 9th Air Force. Handwritten caption on reverse: 'E6-D, 44-72322, "Nancy Lee". 402nd F.S., 307th F.G., 9th Air Force.'
The model - a building with obstaclesI wanted to give the model more details. The good piece has been around for a few years and is no longer up to date. A lot can be done, especially indoors.
- Hasegawa P-51D
- Aires Wheelwell
- True Details Cockpit
- Ultracast Propeller
- Ultracast Auspuffrohre
As you know, you grow by your tasks and so I am very happy that it finally worked out.
Cockpit and propeller fit perfectly. I can especially recommend the latter.
Painting - keep it simple!
