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.

Box Contains

1 x unassembled model kit, 1 x instructions, 1 x decal sheet

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!!!

I'm extremely surprised with this kit on many levels, it's very detailed inside and out, beautiful panel lines and a very good quality plastic. I didn't expect this sort of quality from a series 1 kit. very easy to build and paint, there is a more expensive kit of an F-51 mustang which is basically this model with another sprue added with rockets and such. This is an option if you want more detail and different decals. The decals on this kit give only one option, I personally used the universal mustang decals and custom made my own by slicing up other sheets but for this design it's great. There are also lots of other after market declass for this popular kit!
Overall amazing kit for a gift or an experienced modeller.

Bought a pair of these for a game I've got coming up as they are about the cheapest single seat fighter model in 1:72 I could find, wasn't expecting much.

They are however very nice little models, crisp and well moulded, easy to assemble and with good instructions.

I've not built this yet, just opened the box and studied the kit (anticipation was always one of the joys of airfix!).

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.

I bought this kit to experiment putting a motor in during the run up to me getting a Tucano from airfix. I had already painted the F-51D mustang from airfix which was a bit more expensive for different decals and a different armament. This kit is exactly like the F-51D without a few missiles, meaning the quality is fantastic. The interior detail is great, the decals only have one option which is marginally disappointing, but other than that it's an amazing kit for the price. I highly recommend it! The only problem was amazon taking around 3 days to dispatch and even longer for it to come through my door. other than that it is an amazing kit!
