Live from Telford: New Airfix 1/48 P-51D Mustang – sprue preview
Another big news from Airfix at the Telford snow was the 1/48 scale P-51D Mustang. Do we need another Mustang kit in this scale you might ask? Well of course we do...! It looks impressive on the sprues and is apparently nearly production-ready. It also features seeminhly manh options - all types of drop tanks, underwing stores, separate fin fillet, separate parts for in-flight pose with closed landing gear. Two types of canopy are provided, with single hood part and windscreens moulded integrally with an adjacent fuselage panel for seamless assembly.
Like the ither new Airfix releases, the design of this kit was laser-scanned from a full-size original.
