"well built kit"
kennethlinger (Raleigh, NC)
This Model kit from Academy was a wonderful build. Not only did the parts go together very well, I only had to fill in some very small areas with putty and no issues with fitting. I used after market decals from Cartograph and Photo etching from Eduard. I so pleased with the instructions and painting schemes. I am going to build another 5 more with the same decals and paint scheme for a flight of six on an airfield diorama.

"Academy 1/72 Mustang"

The kit went together well. I enjoyed building and painting it. The decals for the invasion stripes were a bit difficult for me. I used micro sol and set for the first time. Needless to say, I should have done more small decals before jumping to big ones.

 
"Good Build, expecally for a beginner."

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"

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!
