First off all, I wish you a happy new year 2017!
I started painting the pony. I decided to go with "Salem Representative". Life Like Decals offer a very nice set for Mr. Hofers P-51. Actually I ´ve used a mix of Life Like, Printscale and Academy Decals.
The modell exclusevly painted with Revell Aqua Color. I have sealed the decals with layer of clear matt paint. This will hopefully give a good base for the oil color wheathering.
I followed the Life Like instructions but if I had to do to the paint job again I would do a full set of D-Day markings. You can see it clearly if you follow the link under the first picture.
|"Salem Representative" is a Printscale decal. I managed to get the wunderfull Life Like Decal destroyed 😥.|
The stencils are very nice and lendt from the Academy P-51B, printed by Cartograph.
The two under wing bombs are also from the Academy Kit. Hofers missions were to protect the bombers and so I will not add them to the to my Cadillac.
|The decal doesn´t really fit to the kit part. The white flanks on the tires are Life Like Decals.|
