Excellent model
By Jeff July 9, 2014
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

Manufacturer Comments
  • Marking option C is for an early P-51D without the vertical stabilizer leading edge fillet. This is depicted on the box art
  • but the instructions do not mention that the fillet must be removed
  • to accurately depict this aircraft.
