1:48 P-51D Mustang Landing Light

I decided to make my own 3D design of Landing Light, because the one in the kit was badly moulded and its details were blurred. The new part is much more crisp and better detailed.


The light was sprayed with MRP Surfacer and painted with MRP GLOSS BLACK and 003 Super Silver. “Glass” was made from Nail Top Coat UV Gel applied inside the cone and consequently hardened with UV light. This gel is unbelievably clear and if applied carefully you can even form lens shape on the top!

CAUTION: source of UV light usually produce some heat so I recommend to cure the gel in a few 10 seconds intervals.

Note: the wooden roller in the bottom part of the reflector was used for automatic retraction of the landing light by moving landing gear struts.
