Description

 

Bill Freeman, a previous owner of P-51D Mustang warbird Su Su, showed me Brett Green's 1/48 scale Tamiya model of this aircraft last December. The model was sans legs so I volunteered to Slo Zap them back in place.

He subsequently linked me to Brett's Testor's ScaleWorkshop article on its construction. I asked him if he would like the same model in 1/18th scale. When he agreed, I contacted Mike Grant who agreed to sell me the SU SU suite of decals in 1/18th. Bad Cat Toys sold me the P-51D OLD CROW which was the basis for the conversion. Decals are also from Major Decals in MA with red checkers from Tauro in Italy via Squadron.

The model was painted with Testor's spray can Dark Green overcoated with Testor's High Gloss Clearcoat also in the spray can.
