Mary is finally completed. The yellow stripes on the iron bombs were hand painted. I may add a standing pilot later on just to add some interest in the vignette. Please use the 6th picture for the completed page.

Photographed the Mustang out in natural light this morning to capture some of the Alclad metallic reflectivity that is present but subtle consistent with weathering in an operational combat aircraft.

Hi there, Castel,

I would like to join your group build if possible.  I'm not sure what I will be building, but will be looking through the stash this week.  I'm thinking about a 1/48th scale P-51 Mustang of some kind.  Or the newish Revell 1/32nd scale P-51D?  Decisions, decisions!!

Thanks,

Dave

2022 New Year's Resolution:  Enter 1 group build and COMPLETE a build this year!!  Why Photobucket did you rob me of my one Group Build Badge???  Must be part of the strong anti-Monogram cartel!!!

PJ, fantastic work on Mary the Mustang. There is superb work wherever I look. The cockpit, the checkerboards, the fine cockpit framing, the base, the drop tank, the metal finish it’s all great.

 

JB, your Mustang is looking great too. Nice detail in the cockpit and great work on the preshade and olive scheme.  Looking forward to seeing it finished.

 

Castel, super work on the Birddog. Love the scheme you have chosen, not going to miss that one! Great interior too.

 

Cbaltrin, the Super Bee is coming along well, love the look of the metallic finish.

 

Update on the Winjeel, the canopy is masked and in place

 

Then the frame painted black.

 

The initial coat of grey primer showed up lots of pinholes in the wings that needed filling and sanding.

 

And then the Tamiya spray can white went on, showing up a few corrections required, including more pinholes, this time in the wing roots and leading edges.
