Two great additions to your airforce Lou, excellent work. What programme do you use to make your decals? Regards Paul J.

Thanks Paul. I just use MS Word to make my decals and images downloaded from the web.

Two new subjects: A Hellcat and a shelved Mustang. The Hellcat was started from scratch but the Mustang was carved to block shape before I put it away last year.

All major carving has been done with sealing and sanding coming later tonight. The first Mustang IV was done some time ago. I have started the exhaust pipes by slant cut to a 1mm bamboo stick from my place mat. Super glue ties it together and then sanding will bring it down to the size needed.

An accident on the assembly line lead to a cracked P-51 tail assembly. The operator forgot that the tail was only tacked in place and added putty before finishing the glue job. That allowed the Hellcat to take the lead and move to the spray booth first.

The Hellcat and Mustang were completed within minutes so I will present them both. The Mustang is a P-51D from the Tuskegee Squadron Duchess Arlene and the Hellcat an F6F from the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm Pacific Theatre.

With the addition of the Hellcat and new Mustang, this brings my WWII ID + Squadron numbers up to 19. Some are not true WWII ID planes, but they were built in the same fashion and level of detail.

Excellent pair Lou, I like the colour schemes and your decals with the nose art. The exhaust look very effective, there are so many tips and methods used on this site to pick up.Regards Paul J.

Starting another WWII ID + Model namely the Lancaster. She is big in comparison to single engine fighters. At 17 inches of wing span and just over 11 inches long, she will barely fit in the new display case. Next to it will be a Halifax Mk III. Lanc drawings are printed but the start date is not yet set. I am using the ID plans from the site.
