The Mustang came into its own when it was fitted with the Merlin engine. Its long range enabled it to escort bomber formations deep into enemy territory and the numbers produced and performance provided eventually helped to clear the skies over Western Europe. This kit includes four acrylic paints, paint brush and glue.

This kit has been manufactured using new moulding and the kit has fine recessed panel lines.It is assembled quite easily and the instructions are straightforward.The decals are opaque,accurate and easily applied.It is a great kit for beginners and accurate enough for more experienced modellers.The acrylic paints are very accurate as you would expect from Humbrol. Airfix have really improved in the last few years and some of their kits more than equal the best Japanese manufacturers.Their new Fairey Swordfish kit is excellent and has been reviewed very favourably by expert reviewers.The 1:48 Westland Lynx kits are also brilliant.For those wanting super detailing many brass etched and resin parts are available from specialist manufacturers.

This model is extremely fun to do in your spare time and although the stickers are a bit hard to do at first you get the hang of them. For any person who would like to start airfix I would strongly pick this one first
I bought this for my 10 year old son as a first Airfix model. The instructions are clear and easy to follow and everything needed is included in the kit. Having paint as well as decals included makes the kit good for a starter pack as it doesn't assume that you already have done models before. The kit is easy for a novice yet still challenging enough to make it worthwhile buying as it will probably take us 6 hours to complete.
