Brickmania P-51 Mustang

NK Custom-ized

The P-51 Mustang from Brickmania was one of the first aircraft modifications I did.  I enjoyed changing the color schemes on builds so much, it soon became a habit to make multiples - never being satisfied with one specific color scheme...

Mechanized Brick's Sherman was a good platform to modify to a "Fury".  I also started incorporating Brickarms components.

Don't misinterpret my modifications.  The original's were designed by very talented builders at Brickmania (www.brickmania.com) and Mechanized Brick (www.mechanizedbrick.com).  I really enjoy their builds  / products and have a decent collection of both of their kits.  Modifications are just my way of personalizing them, not "making them better."  That is what is great about Legos - the ease of which it is to change things - to customize a creation and make YOURs unique.  I also have a habit of not being satisfied with a build, especially my own, and routinely find myself redoing even my own designs, always wanting to add details, change colors, etc.
