Falconxlvi Posted August 25, 2019 Share Posted August 25, 2019 I know, another Mustang...do we really need one?! After spending about two weeks on the new Eduard kit, I think the answer is a resounding yes! I got so into the build that my Corsair project is effectively on the the back-burner until the P-51D is done. Here’s a quick recap of the progress I’ve made on the Mustang so far. The cockpit is highly detailed - I augmented the kit cockpit photoetched placards with the excellent set by Barracudacals. Primed with Mission Models Black Primer The floorboards were painted Tamiya XF-57 Buff and then streaked with Burnt Sienna oil paint for the wood look... ...then oversprayed with highly diluted Tamiya XF-85 Rubber Black. The seat was assembled and painted US Interior Green, with highlights added and then chipping with Aluminum. The seatbelts are from Eduard’s Steelbelts range and come with the aftermarket LOOK resin instrument panel that I purchased. They are a bit more refined and detailed than the kit supplied photoetch belts. Finally, everything is brought together with the excellent cockpit sidewalls which are adorned with all of the Barracudacals stencils and placards. The gear bay is superbly detailed and features an interlocking assembly to ensure rigidity and alignment. And that’s where things stand at the moment! It is a superb kit and I highly recommend it. Thanks for taking a look. Steve Quote Link to post Share on other sites
