Product Description

Product Description

The Mustang was among the best and most well-known fighters used by the U.S. Army Air Forces during World War II, appearing in action in just about every theatre. Over 8,000 were built and the P-51D arrived in quantity in Europe in the spring of 1944, becoming the USAAF's primary long range escort fighter. The versatile Mustang also served as a fighter-bomber and reconnaissance aircraft. Few Luftwaffe aircraft could match the P-51D, and by the end of the war, Mustangs had destroyed 4,950 enemy aircraft in the air, more than any other USAAF fighter in Europe.

This is the latest in the new Airfix range of 'new tool' kits which replaces some of the old and dated models.

There are quite a few 1/72 scale P-51Ds on the market, including Academy, Hobby Boss,Hasegawa (now a bit old and pricey for what you get) and Tamiya (very expensive).

The kit has a good number of parts, with drop tanks, two canopy options and a nice set of decals, including stencils, for a 'Tuskegee Airman' aircraft. Detailing is good, with, for example, a nice and visible radiator, reasonable cockpit detail for the scale and a pilot which is much better than the old Airfix generic bods.

The only drawbacks are the heavily recessed panel lines, which will reduce with a coat of paint, and that there's only one decal option, but there are many after market sheets if you wish.

The kit fits together well, is easy to build, looks like a Mustang and is significantly cheaper than the competition: what more could you want, except the shelf space to build a squadron!

Well done Airfix.

Very impressed with the level of detail on this kit, the panel lines are great and the parts fit together very well. For a small cheap kit the end result looks fantastic, in fact I have bought another one so I can have both a wheels up and down version.

highly recommended for both beginners and also experienced kit builders, you wont be disappointed.

Ignore the daft 'one star' review. This is Airfix getting back to their best, with a good, new tooled rendition of this classic aircraft. An accurate and surprisingly detailed model can be built from this kit, and I liked the choice of markings. It's half the price of comparable kits from other manufacturers. You can't go wrong.

Oh, and don't forget you may need to buy some paints and glue!!!

A new tooled kit from Airfix, and what a kit it is.

A new cockpit set up with great detail, new surface detail with engraved panel lines, better detailed landing gear and even and updated Cartograh decal sheet. I have yet to build her but from reports from other builders the parts fit is out of this world.

Thanks to Airfix for a super new kit!!
