"Excellent model"
Jeff
I recently finished building this kit and came away very pleased. The amount of detail for the price was excellent and I would think that for the average modeller there is little to no need to purchase after market upgrades. Having said that, there is no shortage of additional products that can be added should the builder feel a need. The fit was excellent with only a bare minimum of putty being required. The instruction sheet was well laid out. As with all builds one must look at the construction sequence recommended by the manufacturer versus what actually works in regards to finishing the model with a minimum of issues. The decal sheet as supplied was more than adequate but I did purchase aftermarket decals to make the finished product a little more rare. The decals supplied are for a couple of very famous ships and while there is nothing wrong with that I prefer things a bit more obscure. Again there is a ton of after market decals available for P-51 Ds. This is certainly a kit that I will purchase again and would have no problem recommending it to other builders. Cheers, Jeff

"Excellent build"
Blue2thecoreaf
No complaints on this one...great engraved panels and no fitment issues what so ever. The blue nose version looks amazing finished!

 
"Tamiya P-51"
chukpilk
To use an old saying, throw this kit into the air and it comes down assembled is almost true here. Excellent fit of all the parts. Virtually no glue needed to install the lower wing, just popped into place. Same with prop. No filler needed anywhere and very little sanding. Maybe a little fiddly mounting the external tanks but no real problem. Bravo , Tamiya Highly recommended.
