Terri, your P-51 came out really, really well. Have followed your thread more or less silently and I'm surprised how good the checker decals lay around the cowling. If I would have done it, the decals would probably throw folds and have cracks. I know me .... So, what's next on your bench?

Thanks guys for stopping by and checking out the final build pic's and fir the kind comments .

Russell , no need to be silent . Always nice to get that little encouragement . It really does help ..

Joel , yeah ; not the greatest when it comes to taking photos . I still need to get a better set up , working on it though .


Well guys , I'm not sure what is next on the bench . I do have a shelf queen on the bench right now and is pretty close to paint . No build thread on this one but I will post a few final pics when I get her done .

Other then that I was thinking about doing another meat ball one . Then a twin engine came to mind so maybe something German .Maybe even a Mossie ...

I always have a hard time sticking to whatever my next build game plan is. Something always seems to pop up that catches my attention.

Nice work Terri, pretty slick in all respects, but two particular highlights for me were the nose decal and the speed of the build (two months?).
all the best.

Terri & Richard,
Everyone knows that Richard is biased towards aircraft with big Red circles.
