Thanks Apophenia, there's three nights work in that plateing one to stick it on, one to paint it, and one to weather it. The back story explains the bizarre paint scheme.

  • An outstanding, creative builder.
I started this one a few years ago. It got abandoned right after a base coat and some masking applied.  i decided recently to clear up a few of the oldies on the shelf. Amazingly, the masking hadn't damaged the base coat. Probably because I used a spray can of Krylon Brilliant Silver. That stuff sure is tough. It didn't peel off at all. I finished it with Model Master Metalizers. The decals are from the Academy F-51 Korean War Mustang.

The original story was an idea to convert the P-51 to jet power as an interim measure during the later part of WWII. I figured with the low power jet engines available, two would be better. I constructed the engines from some old drop tanks. I removed the intakes from the nose and reshaped it and added 4x .50 cal machine guns, since wing guns were removed to fit the jets. I moved the main gear wells aft to make it a tricycle gear and added a wheel well in the nose. Obviously, the belly radiator was removed as well. I added some 5 inch rockets and tip tanks for a combat ground attack mission.
