P-51D "Petie" 1:33 Halinski

The P51-D "Petie" from Halinski is my next plane.
A shot of the front side.


The paper is kind of glossy,so I'm having some troubles focusing on the tiny outlines......
I wanted a soft start so I started with the battery arrangement.


Then I started on the cockpit floor.


This kit seems very nice with the "aluminium" print.
Since this is a big step for me.....to start a Halinski kit without very much experience, I will proceed kind of slow I guess.....

Oh goody! Another Johnny airplane build. And a Mustang, to boot! This will be very enjoyable.

Looks like a solid start to me. This is a beautiful model but intimidating with all the bare metal. I'm quite sure you are up to the challenge!

Looks like a good start, as always. This one is on my build list, so I'll follow this closely
When I get to this one I 'think' that I'm going to work a way to scan the model and build the interior parts out of normal card stock with a matte finish and just deal with the glossy paper for the metallic bits. That is if I can work it out right.

Hello my friends!!

I guess this will be an exiting build for me. To jump on a Halinski kit wasn't what I had in mind.....but I often bring myselves into a bit too deep water
So lets just see how it goes!!

Johnny way to go, no problems. I think you'll enjoy the quality of this one, but we'll be watching to pick up tips. I'll post some pics of the merlin today hopefully

The start of the P51......
I start with making the internal framing for the cockpit section.
The drawings in the Halinski kits is really good I think.


Here is the first dryfit of the parts I have cut out now.I have some other parts that I'm doing some hardening ties on....I'm soaking the backside of some parts with thinned varnish just to see if that's any good.




I hope to have this frame section done today If I'm lucky...

The frames of the cockpit section is done.



I'm missing two parts called InP and InL who will go in there somewhere....when I have figured out where to put them

Now it's time to start on the sidepanels, and now I see more of the halinski details....This is really fun!!

The drawing of the left panel shows that it contains 17 parts....


Of course there was some internal framing


That frame should be covered by another skin...


It doesn't look quite as bad as with the macrolense....

First instrument in place
