Accurate Miniatures P-51B "Salem Representative" Part III


Hi all,

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 đŸ˜„. 


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.

I reworked the decal on the wheel well door with Revell Aqua colors



All the best

Pete
