I just finished this kit yesterday afternoon its the accurate miniatures F-6B which is a p-51a allison powered photo recon mustang . I built this model OOB , I used tamiya and model master enamels with inks and pastel chalks for the weathering . I decided to use the malcom hood instead of the typical greenhouse canopy which early p-51's used . I was pleased by the overall fit of the parts but I had some seams to sand and fill which is usually typical of most kits anyway . Sorry about the photo quality the plane is painted a dark olive drab and where I live not much sunlight makes it through the windows because of the trees . Thanks for viewing my post !!

Regards, Earl

You've locked out the pilot!

Nice build Earl!

The Malcom Hood slid fore and aft so the antenna mast was deleted and a small whip antenna was installed farther aft on the fuselage spine.

I borrowed this P-51B profile to illustrate what I'm saying.

It might help to add some artificial light, a simple hardware store clamp light with a higher-wattage bulb is what I use. Shooting at the kitchen table you can clamp the light onto the back of a chair and point it at the model. Daryl's right, that radio mast is in the way for the sliding canopy to open.

Nice looking model.

To post an image of your models, you will first need to find somewhere to host your photos on the Internet. Your ISP will often give you a limited amount of free web storage, and other online photo storage is also available.

To post a link or an image, simply type in the URL (web address) of the destination page or image. The URL will appear as a link (for an HTML link) or an image (if you link direct to a .jpg file) when posted. You can use the Preview facility to see how your message looks before posting to Plastic Pix.

Please try to keep image sizes to 800 pixels wide or less, as larger sizes will be too big to fit on many computer screens. Also, file sizes should be kept to around 100kb or less, otherwise download may be very slow.
