Korean War Photo Recce Mustang
« on: June 21, 2022, 02:23:24 PM »
I have started the Eduard RF-51K Korean War Mustang.
There are lots of pieces of etched brass in the cockpit, making up most of the radio sets etc.
Closing the fuselage will be interesting!

Lots of intereting detail Bill along with some nice paintwork.

I think it might be 1/48th.
Whatever it is, it looks good.

It's I/48 scale and I have manage to close the fuselage halves together.
More photos to follow, including the wings and wing to fuselage which are all very tight!

These photos show the fuselage together and the lower wing with the u/c bay in position.

I found that the shape marked with the arrows 'A' just fits into the position marked on the view looking up into the cockpit. It will then fit almost perfectly!

Hi Meremodeller,
Nice work. Looks like Eduard thought a lot in the planning of this kit to make it easy to all line up properly.
