    Finished this litle one...
    nice model but only thing what is not good is canopy...
    canopy from start looks like blured glass, almost no panel lines, owfull fit...
    but in the end I have enjoyed building this fella :)

    Looks good. I like the wear on the wings.

    Nice work Roman. It's an old kit, which might explain the canopy. But the canopy doesn't look too bad - a polish with toothpaste might have improved it, followed by a coat of 'Future'.

    Probably a similar product to Future (known as Johnson's 'Klear' in the UK). Strangely, my usual sources of Future/Klear don't seem to have any recently, and I'm about to run out !

    Great work Roman!

    Yep, nice kit, built it myself about 10 years ago. Only problems are canopy as mentioned, and wing root fillet: not pronounced enough, and undercarriage doors sloping too far back as a result.

    nice job on the p51,i had the same problem with my canopy on this one,its more like poor quality plastic being used rather than because its an older kit,your detailing really is top notch and in 1/72nd well done love it

    Bob, my local Tesco and Sainsbury's normally have the Pledge Klear, but neither have stock at the moment for some reason. I'll find some somewhere !
