P-51 Mustang – Tamiya 1/48

DSCN6337

The building (as expected on a Tamiya kit) went simple and clean. The adaptation of the Aires resin set didn’t bring too much problems.

 

 

The painting started with AlcladII paints, them aplied some decals and varnish before paint the olive drab.

 

 

I painted with Testors Olive Drab with masks to protect the decals already aplied.

 

 

Problems with masks that removed decals, paints that react with the varnish, scratchs that went beyond the limit… I almost gave up.

 

 

After a great time stopped, I retouched the paint where needed, bought new decals and finally completed the model.
