Tamiya 1/32 P-51D "Fighting Lady"

By John Bardwell

I decided to do a little diorama with this one. The aircraft was painted with Alclad, Xtracolor, White Ensign and Model Master. Decals are from Kagero. Cockpit details and wheels are Barracudacast. I added plumbing to the wheel wells although you can't see it in these photos. I also added some plumbing and wiring on the engine. I used a Testor's/Italeri field workshop with necessary modifications as a basis for the crane, etc. The work stand was hand made and was in my parts graveyard from long ago. I'm glad I still had it! The base is from Custom Dioramics (Squadron has, or had, these under their name not long ago). I hope you like it.

There's a build thread for this model in the forums.
