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.
