RAF Mustang MkI, photo recon. Hobby Boss 1:32

Another recently complete commission for same client. For a 1:32 kit, it was bereft of detail and the carb intake on the nose was completely misshaped so I sculpted a new form for it. My first foray into creating D-Day markings so I am quite pleased with the results (much easier than I anticipated!). :Biggrin

Very pretty.

I prefer the early pre bubble canopy Mustangs for some strange reason.

Didn't know they popped 20mm cannon in them (they are 20mms aren't they?) - thought they always stuck with the 50 cals.

Cheers Dutch, yes they are 20mm cannon. It's a pretty aeroplane apart from that sicky-out nose bit!

Very nice. Thanks for posting the four pictures for all-around detail. 1/32nd gives great canvas for detail.

Are those landing lights on both wings or the photo-recon camera ports?

Yes Sparky, they are landing lights, the camera is mounted behind the rhe pilot (note hole in the rear cockpit window). ☺
