Airfix 1/48 P-51D Mustang

Just a quick update to the Airfix P-51 cockpit. I resprayed the Eduard coloured etch first and using a paint brush moistened with Tamiya thinner wiped the green paint off the placards. 
I lightened the mix with some yellow and sprayed in between the panels to add some interest then oversprayed the entire cockpit with AK ultra matt varnish to deaden the shine of the Eduard coloured etch and to cover up the blobs of superglue.
I’ll drop some Tamiya X-22 into the instrument dials to represent the glass and do some chipping with a silver pencil for some wear and tear, the cockpit floor will be given some brown chipping to represent some wear to the floorboards.
There are a couple more details to add yet but hopefully I’ll be able to close up the fuselage soon;

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 50 plus years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
