Speed build - Airfix 1/48 P-51 Mustang "Dooleybird"
Sun 11:35am - Humbrol 25 Blue did not match the blue in the decal.
I chose to re-paint this using Vallejo Model Color Intense Blue (seen in the background)
Sun 11:48am - The Intense Blue matched better.
Sun 12:00pm - Despite my best efforts, this was all I could do by the 12pm deadline.
Sun 12:59pm - Pressing on. Let's see how much more I can do before the 2pm deadline for photo submissions.
I sliced along the canopy frame before peeling off the mask. This gave a clean separation line.
Sun 1:07pm - Part of the cockpit lip was obscured by the canopy. This will be painted with Interior Green.
Sun 1:10pm - More brush painting.
Sun 1:14pm - Cockpit lip painted
Sun 1:19pm - With the exception of tiny decal stencils and a panel line wash, I stopped here to take the photographs for submission.
