Barn Find

This is every vintage car fanatics dream, the barn find. You’re passing through a rural area, decide to stop for lunch at a little greasy spoon. As you dig into your chicken fried steak an old timer at the counter spots your hat, a distinctive but maybe obscure car logo (mine would be an old VW Wolfsburg crest) and walks over. As he drops in the seat across from you he points at your hat “you like old cars huh?” As you nod yes with a mouth full of food he tells you about the old car he has in his barn. He bought it 40 years ago and was going to fix it up, but it’s just been sitting there covered with a tarp ever since. You agree that this needs to be seen, and the rest is a hell of a story for the people in your car club. Builder Norton74 shows us what this might look like with a classic Ford Mustang, and it’s a dream come true.

P-51 Mustang

This appeals to me on so many levels. The Mustang is one of my favorite WWII fighters, and this supremely accurate 1/10 scale model by crash_cramer is just jaw-dropping. It's detailed inside and out, with special attention to structural accuracy. The chroming is a combination of parts ordered on Bricklink and clever use of chrome skinning vinyl. The canopy is custom, and while that may put off some purists out there, I'm personally totally ok with it. It all adds up to a stunning model of one of the greatest airplanes ever to soar through the skies.
