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.

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.
highly recommended for both beginners and also experienced kit builders, you wont be disappointed.
Oh, and don't forget you may need to buy some paints and glue!!!
However first impressions are good.
Another reviewer mentions this is re-tooled. I never built the original P-51 (which is one reason I bought this), however the detail level is superb; cockpit is 5 parts alone including gun sight! control surfaces a poseable and separate to the main wing.
Its almost 25-yrs since I last built an airfix kit and now I am rediscovering them with my children. Early kits lacked detail and were eclipsed by the likes of Hasegawa. However these re-tooled kits give them a run for their money.
Overall amazing kit for a gift or an experienced modeller.
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!!
