"Great kit!"
vitali_tkachenka (Lawrenceville, GA)
Great kit! The quality and attention to details is great. There are 3 painting scheme options but unfortunately they not include a Tuskegee one, but it is not hard to make it yourself if needed.

"Good Build, expecally for a beginner."
chrislehman05
I have built three of these, I am hoping to build about five more as I am useing them for a scale airfield. The kit is fairly clean minus some alignment issues. The parts don't require a whole bunch of sanding though. The instructions are pretty straight forward and simple to read. I have had an issue on two that I have made with the decals, no matter what I do, they wont soften that much. I have tried decal setting and softening solution along with heat. I think it is a problem with them being a bit thick.

 
"Good Quality, Value"
mutzken
The Academy P-51B is my first model in 8 years. That being said, I was a bit rusty, but this Academy kit was a good choice to start modeling again. Overall, kit has very good detail, engraved lines are very crisp and the cockpit detail is surprisingly good. Sprues were fairly clean except for some minor ejector pin marks. I decided to build a open canopy model after i saw how nice the cockpit came out. I had minor fit problems through out that required filing most seams. Fit was close but just missed. My main problem was the cockpit assembly pushed out the fuselage, I never could find where it was misaligned. Definitely dry fit all your parts. Very good quality for the price, Highly recommend!

 
"A very good early P-51"
hhpodesta
This is a very good model of an early P-51, for its price, is very well molded, great details. It comes with air-ground rockets and fuel tanks, which are nice additions. The decals were a problem, in my case, especially the Normandy-invasion black and white stripes and the propeller nose cone, i saw that they were too fragile, so i decided to do them with the airbrush instead, with nice results in this case. The assemble work was in general smooth. I liked the way the kit ended up being.
