Tamiya 1/48 scale P-51B

Paul Mahoney
Larchmont, New York

A friend gave Paul some ICM decals “so I could build something with my wife’s name on it,” says Paul. That turned out to be Tamiya’s 1/48 scale P-51B. “This was my first attempt at natural metal,” he says. He modified the decals to match his references, added brake lines and seatbelts, and used a punch-and-die set to make a rearview mirror from aluminum foil. No word on how his wife liked the plane.
