Santa goes Royal

Arrived today in the mail my own Xmas gift to myself, pretty hedonistic I know 🙂
Royal Class edition of Eduard”s P-51 D.

Lots of sprues, 2 full kits as usual, fin or fin less Versions, 4 different PE that covers all D variants IP, 2 sets of resin wheels and also 2 for diferente types of exhaust pipes. 14 decal options is simply overkill (I guess it’s overtrees bait, smart marketing move).

The only let down is the fact that most clear parts went lose inside the bags, hazards of postal services. From a quick look I reckon nothing is damaged but have to look again to confirm.
I’ll be starting a dual build WIP sometime soon… just need to clear the workbench first.
It’s my first 1/48 Mustang kit and I”m really excited about this one.
So Merry Christmas to all, hope Santa also gets you some new kits!

  1. Good choice as a gift to yourself. I got myself an ICM Ju-88C-6 with Vector replacement/corrected engine cowls and an Aims cockpit set. I’ll be opening them on Christmas Eve. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  2. This looks like a wonderful kit !!! I agree that it is the perfect gift for you. The ICM Ju-88 has been working it’s way to the build pile. Maybe we can add those in with our friendly Dornier builds ??

    As a Christmas gift for me, I have been eyeing some of those Wingnut Wings kits. Rumor has it that I have a Pfalz D-3 and an Albatros D-5 coming. If I have been really good I just might end up getting a Fokker D VII, according to the boss who also happens to be my wife.

    Maybe you can post a kit review on this model and I’ll do the same thing with the WNW models if and when they arrive ??

    Well done my friend. I’ll be looking forward to seeing your Pony build up soon. This looks like a winner here. Thanks for sharing this with us.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  3. Nice Christmas gift Pedro, and Merry Christmas to you and yours.

  4. Pedro, Merry Christmas, since I have everyone taken care of first, then it’s my turn to give to myself. Your choice is excellent for the season. Eduards really does have some nice kits with the extra gifts with in the box. I gifted myself the new AMK F-14D. I think I added more to the stash than build this year.

  5. Olá Pedro!
    Looking forward to follow your progress with this kit. It really looks like a blast!
    Feliz Natal!
    José Pedro
