Zoomie P-51D, update 4
I didn't have black brush on paint, but I did have a jumbo sized Sharpie. I think they look good enough as-is. I also painted the cockpit. I tried thinning white paint, adding blue streaks, and ended up leaving them a somewhat mottled sky blue. Not what I envisioned, but not bad.
The big change is the exhausts from the P51-D's Packard V-1650 V-12 engine. You may notice that the simple dowels were replaced with something a bit snazzier. Anyone want to guess what these are?
