Well i picked up the last of the models that Garry left me in his will on sunday.

I gave one to Monz and have kept the other three.

one of them being the mustang i built for Garry 5 years ago,
It has been stuffed into the ground at some point and badly repaired, so i have got my work cut out to get it sorted.

i fixed all the breaks in the wing and recovered the surface with some more tissue and floor varnish.
so it was time for a repaint.



I am going for RAF colours as every one has a silver one.
i am alos going to convert the fuselage to the "B" design rather than the "D" as it is now.

Looking good Tony. I do prefer the look of the earlier P51's, and in RAF colours too :)

Looks really good, but is that fus roundel correct? The normal outline to the C1 roundel was yellow, not white, or is it just waiting to have the yellow applied?
