Good Quality, Value
By mutzken August 31, 2014
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!

Good kit
By jeremy.s.michels1 October 30, 2014
It builds well with little in the way of fit problems. There are essentially 4 halves of the plane. Each side is split into two sections, and when pairing them together there can be some alignment problems. There is a good number of decal markings available on the sheet, it has several optional loads and the kit has good detail to it. The price is reasonable for a kit of this type and the huge majority of builders are not that concerned with the finer details of things and be very happy with the results.

Great build
By rlsundquist May 14, 2015
The separate tail section is the only curious aspect of this kit, which is excellent in every other way. The fit is superb, as it is with every other Academy model I've built, and the detail is terrific, especially for the scale. The wooden floor of the Mustang's cockpit is recreated, as is the tread on the tires. The box comes with two types of exhaust stacks, bombs, drop-tanks, and rockets, and a choice of standard or Malcolm hoods, which can both be posed open. There might be some issues with the shape of the wings being incorrect for the P51B, but if you can overlook that minor shortcoming, this is a wonderful, hassle-free build.

Great kit!
By vitali_tkachenka June 23, 2015
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.
