Preview: Airfix 1/48 P-51D
Kit arrived Friday, took five careful hours to assemble without filler. Done OOB other than used Tamiya decals from the "8th AF Aces" release to do Bud Anderson's "Old Crow" ID stripes, invasion stripes, personal markings). They fit the kit like a glove.
Full review Thursday at Modeling Madness.
Here is the M2 review:
There has been some commentary elsewhere about comparing this kit with the Meng kit, so I will state a bit more clearly what I mean about this being the best 1/48 P-51: FOR PRICE, it is unbeatable. The Meng may be better (haven't seen one personally) but it is also 2.5x as expensive.
