Tamiya's 1/48 scale
Mustang Mk.III

by Hector Lopez


North American Mustang Mk.III
3 Squadron RAAF, Fano, Italy, Winter 1944/45


Tamiya's 1/48 scale P-51B Mustang is available online from Squadron




This is Tamiya's 1/48 P-51B Mustang finished in the markings of 3 Squadron RAAF, based at Fano in Italy during the winter of 1944/45.

I was inspired in a model I saw in an article about Aussie Mustang Mk.III. That model was made by Chris Wauchop and I followed every indication he wrote in the article.

I used Mr. Color Paints and Aeromaster decals.



The kit seat was changed by an Cutting Edge one, and the wheels came from True Details.  I installed an Eduard Zoom set too.

The control column is from a Cutting Edge set for the Sea Fury, but I think it works well here.
