Here is the Piper PA48 Enforcer built as a new airframe in the mid 1980's loosely based on the Mustang unlike the Cavalier Turbo Mustang III which was originally a P-51D I believe. Since both prototypes have been restored and placed on diplay there are hundreds of good photos of both that I was able to correct most of the mistakes I hope. The line drawing was horrible with multiples of mistakes and did not have a front view. I took the Neville Franklin Cavalier Mustang front view, placed the nose section minus the radiator scoop of a
P-51D over it then modified it into what I think is a reasonably correct front view of the Enforcer. I did the Enforcer that is on Display at the National Museum of the United States Air Force. The other prototype is displayed at Edwards Air Force Base in California where the two prototyoes were evaluated. I hope you like them.

So that will be it for the moment as I have yet to begin a new set. Thanks for all of your kind comments, I appreciate them.

Great stuff ... and cool techniques James. I really like your mixture of photo bits and line art  :)

Thanks! I still need to learn how to highlight to take it to the next level, but so far my attempts have been disappointing.

One possibility is applying a lighter colour with the airbrush tool over a transparent layer and then flattening the layers.

Once again awesome work James.

We need someone revive the Dart and Lycoming conversions in 1/72 and 1/48.
Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.
