Hi all

Completed Tamiya's 1/48 scale P51-B Mustang in the markings of Capt. Don Gentile, 336 FS, 4th FG. First time I have ever used aftermarket detail parts. Was a joy to build.

Now that is a very nice bit of work - Well done. The finish is superb.

Lovely kit this - I've built a couple and rate it as the best kit I've ever built.

A great piece of work, Marc and it's good to see a P-51B for a change.

Very well finished - I like the weathering well used but not overdone. A fine balance!
