P-51 Mustang D – The 1st Annual Jesse Bauchsbaum Memorial Build


Here is the Airfix 1/48 scale P-51D Mustang. There were a lot of accuracy issues with this kit, however, the fit was good and for the price of $26 USD, I would say you can’t go wrong. This was my first attempt at Natural Metal Finish on an aircraft so I think it turned out ok. Also, I hope Jesse would love this aircraft, and everything it really stood for, including standing up for bullying which was represented by the Red Tails of WWII.
