Got this a little bit ago and got the urge to build an airplane. Going to do it as Betty Jane flown by Col. Charles M. McCorkle 31st. F. G. Commanding Officer in 1944.



I already started it but don't have any picts yet.

I got the P-51B replacement in yesterday



I'll start on it next week and it looks like a better kit than the Monogram plus it's all there!

Here are the spruce shots





The decal work sheet


and the decals by Super Scale



Looks like a clean kit with very little flash so it should be fun to build.

Hi Gang, I got some done on Betty Jane but didn't many pict. Got the cockpit done and put the body together with the wings and tail feathers,












Have to fix the left wing fairing which is higher than the wing, fill and sand the seams so I can get her ready for paint.
