Build Log - Tamiya 1/48 P-51 Mk. III

Have started my P-51 Mk. III. It is a nice kit from Tamiya, well detailed right out of the box. The cockpit and wheel wells are well done, and were airbrushed with Model Master Interior green. It was then washed with Vallejo black, and then drybrushed. Detail was picked out with Vallejo paints. I did add an UltraCast seat with belts to spruce it up a little. The kit did include a decal, but the Ultracast seats looks so much better. I did use the kit provide decal for the dash, and picked out each dial with Future, for the glass look.

The fuselage and wings went together well, a little putty to clean up the joints. Just finishing up before applying primer.
