Thanks for looking
Yes Pup the false P-51's would have their own markings and oddly enough invasion stripes...possibly nose art even (the build is still young)
I hope to use decals for the call letters, although I may paint them on if required. A gloss coat is up next in anticipation of doing those decals.

That's hilarious! I never did understand that fuax cockpit on that old NATO Scheme, especially on the bottom of a BUFF.

That's soo cool! I can see it now, no german fighter would engage because he's got all those fighters flying escort!

And dig the defused camo up top. :thumbsup
I told you photobucket sucks...

Hahahahaha
I remember that show! Damn he was funny! Veddy intedestink.
I've finished the gloss coat, decals and flat coat. I went really light on the weathering...mostly because I forgot to do any! I can be a real idiot at times!
Enough of that, I removed the masking and here's where I am at. I went with Ye Olde Pub 2 I painted the 2 by brush. I also wanted the painted on Mustangs to look like they were in front of the fuselage codes, so I painted the codes...or at least what you can see of the codes.

Thanks guys!
I know it's an odd project, I'm ok with it :)
I've added the guns and exhaust pipes today and pending weathering the basic build is nearly done, awaiting propellers and spinners still.
But that's a work in progress.
Being as how the aircraft had lost so much weight in the re-powering, I took the idea that it would have to add ballast to maintain C/G so with that in mind I've upped the gunnery in the nose and tail with rotary machine guns up front and high cyclic rate machine guns and heavy caliber cannon in the rear (the rear gun barrels are left over from (oddly enough) the Hong Kong models 1/32 B-17G

I’ve been missing this one! What a great idea and the execution is awesome! Those false mustangs are the bomb!
