    Nice! Is this some sort of limited issue of the Tamiya kit? I know of a good many different issues of this kit with different decals, but I've never seen it with this particular markings. Either way, should be good to see this one come together. If it wasn't for my Bf-110 project I prolly would have tried throwing in a Tamiya 'stang as well.

    Great kit, lousy box art! What ever happened to the inspiring artwork from when I was a kid? Wrong place for this rant. I'll start a thread elsewhere. Anyway, I may be wrong but i believe the pit should be interior green. Suggestions?

    Jerry, plenty of references on the net for your cockpit. Just google "P 51 cockpit" and select images.

    yep, it's just been released - same kit as before, with new decals, to coincide with the movie.

    Looking forward to this one as well. Might need to pick up this kit. I had done some Red Tails when I was younger, but they have all disappeared with time, so I've been wanting to do another.

    Got to agree, can't wait until the stash is thinned out enough so I can get one.

    Great model... Actually met a couple of those men at an annual airshow we have here every year. They are great to listen to.
