Just thought I'd join this one seeing as these are starting to progress down the workbench after an afternoon of decalling.

1 x Airfix P-51D (new mold) and 1 x Academy P-51C, all out of the box, paints are Aeromaster Warbird Acrylic in the correct WWII ANA shades and the decals are from the later incarnation of Aussie Decals.

Airfix P-51D CV-<> KH677.
I believe that the paint scheme for this maybe the wrong pattern as per Steve Mackenzie's article in a past APMA magazine, but this is what Aussie Decals show in their instructions. Sky Blue Band and Rudder are painted with different blues from Gunze.

Academy P-51C CV-A KH593
Sky Blue patch and Rudder are painted with different blues from Gunze. Gunze WWII British Green used for overpaint of light blue fuselage band, it closely matches the Aeromaster Warbird Acrylic Olive Drab.

All the decalling is finished and as soon as it stops raining, I'll be gloss coating them in preparation for final assembly and weathering. Photos to follow.
