P-51D Mustangs

So, I have been planning this for some time
and now its finally happening!

A new series of Mustang kits...D Models.

First off some more Tuskegee planes.
Hopefully some Canadian planes
and then...
well, to be honest, I am open to suggestions.

I am still in the early design stages...
and I am maintaining a progress thread on my Forum.
I'll try to update here regularly,
but if you want to keep an eye on the entire design process, you can keep tabs HERE

Sweet! Don't get me wrong, Dr. Zarkov's Mustangs are wonderful, but your textures are splendid!

If I may be so bold, who is the designer you commissioned? Please send my congratulations to him/her on such a wonderful design!

And I agree with Don, please do keep us updated!

EDIT: Dave, how's the cockpit on this one? Will it be nice and detailed :D?

How about doing a Pacific Mustang?

There are a couple of local P-51s that would make great models! One, "Barbara Jean", is a WWII vet that was converted for air races, and then returned to original trim.

"Gunfighter" is another vet that has been restored and on the airshow circuit for years. It is owned by the CAF wing in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

I have lots of photos for both for reference if you're interested.

ooooh these are some nice choices!

Remember, my Mustang is based on the "early version".

If you're knowledgeable about D model Mustangs, you will know that
there is an "early" and "late" version.
Seems like they have minor differences ...like a slightly narrowed canopy.

And obviously Race versions and more modernized versions of the Mustang
would have a few more differences over the original early D model.

I have already recognized this fact and although I intend on maintaining some
accuracy, I think I can get away with a few repaints using my "early" template.

the Graphic Artist in me wants know more!
...but I would have to see some photos of the actual plane.
(I never work from profile artworks)
