P 51 Mustang

Hey I just finished modeling this, and I was wondering if you could give me some feedback, and tips to improve it.


I think you could use the same technique you used to make the flaps to make windows in the cockpit, and a seam around the propellor mount so it doesn’t look like its welded to the fuselage. The propellor blades need a little twist to them.

Here is another shot. There is something wrong with the air intake, but I can’t figure out what.http://blaylocks.googlepages.com/P-51Render2.jpg/P-51Render2-full.jpg

This is my favorite airplane and one of these days I’m going to finish the one I started.
Your overall shape is good but not great. There are lots and lots of good reference pics on the net. Download all you can find and start tweaking:eyebrowlift:

Before you do any heavy research on the design of your P-51, MAKE SURE TO SELECT A SINGLE MODEL like a P-51E. I have made the mistake before on a hornet project and ended up with the rear of an F/A-18E and the nose of an F/A-18C. I think the model is a pretty good start overall, but far from finished. One thing about your engine exhausts, I believe they have a curve in them as opposed to jutting straight out.
