I built these airplanes for kids toys for some guys in church that were around 5-7. After plenty of hours of online research, I drew a pattern, cut out the plane, sanded, sanded, and sanded some more and came up with a fair shape of a plane.
Then with more research of the P-51 from World War II actual planes and paintings etc. I settled on this paint scheme based on real planes from the War. There were many options. If you have looked at them, you know what I’m talking about.
A close friend of mine actually requested this p-51 paint scheme for one of his children. All I can say is practice with a pencil and then use the paint pens. I painted the silver/gray and did the rest with pencil followed by paint pens. Look close and you will see the shark teeth. I had to do this one for his son, a blue one, and a pink one for his daughter. It was a great experience. They will take a beating also toy-wise being thrown across the yard in “make-believe” flight and dog fights according to my top notch “focus group” professionals…
