1/72 North American P-51D Mustang “Red Tail”

July 14, 2017 in Aviation

This is my third Mustang build, the first one was P-51B which is my first kit ever and the second one was the P-51D from Hobbyboss, attempted to make it into shining Red Tail but fail due to insufficient experience on painting side.

This kit is from Academy Plastic Model, it’s a nice kit with great details and parts. Academy’s re-release of the 1/72 Mustang is a welcome sight as this kit is still one of the nicer P-51s (F-51s) on the market.

The kit is molded in light gray styrene, features nicely scribed details and has those key distinguishing features that modelers like in their Mustangs – deep main wheel wells, positionable wing flaps, detailed cockpit, and a canopy that can be posed open or closed.
