The reason for this build was that when I was a little kid I went to a Showground
( we call them the ' Shows ' in Scotland ) anyway I won
a lovely painted Mirror of this exact aircraft.......!

I have had the mirror for @ 25 years - I always thought -
who was George Preddy ?

Due to the Internet , I was able to learn he WAS the Top Scoring Mustang Ace before
being tragically shot down by American Flak in Dec 1944 -

This Model uses the Eduard Photoetch and also has the ULTRACAST Exhausts
which are far superior to the Kit supplied ones ( the Ultracast ones are hollow at the tips )

I used the Aftermarket EAGLE CALS - Decals Sheet for george Preddys Mustang Decals
and removed the Hasegawa Fin Fillet on the Rudder , which George Preddy's early Model
P-51D Mustang did not have !

The 4 Bladed Propeller by Hasegawa is really well designed , and very accurate -
it has 4 slots that provide the exact pitch

anyway

Enjoy

This Model is also displayed at MODELLING MADNESS - Mustang Picture Section

Why it is worth adding and using EDUARD Photo-etch

The end result is the best etch produced yet from Edaurd

I really loved the extra detail supplied

See if you like it yourself

This cockpit is state of the art, the EDUARD Photo-etch set really sky-rockets the model, beautifuul work.
I see that you prefer to build "personal" models, that's what I like as well
