An updated, old Airfix P-51D Mustang in 1/72

Postby fjs » Tue Oct 10, 2017 7:50 am

My latest project complete at last! this was an old 70s kit I got from my uncle. It had crude panel lines and very little detail, But after puttying the surface, rescribing, and going over it with a rivet maker, It came up quite nice.
