    WOW !!! I haven't seen a such great P-51D model. The camo scheme is quite unusual thuogh. But I guess it was used during the US invasion on the USSR. :thumbright: :lol:

    Not bad, but is it a P-190D-25 or a FW-51A-5 ?

    It is very difficult to say Terry. Judging by the placement of the Pitot tube it might be the P-190D-25-FW. ;)

    Or is it a B-1RD ?
    Oh dear, I hope this doesn't end up like the 'Colour pics for a model...' thread. We don't want to intentionally scare off a new member!

    So the cover of the next Fw-190 Volume by Smith and Creek will have P-51 Mustang written on it I assume.

    Ummm.... yeah....

    It is a beautiful build, regardless of the inaccuracies in the thread title, which I think was intended to confuse the weak-minded like me.

    Hit the Edit Post button at the bottom of your first post . Then go for the Go Advanced button. Then scroll a little bit down and find the Manage Attachments. Click it and attach your pictures to the existing image.

    Outstanding detail. How did you find the fit and finish of the Dragon P-51 to be?

    Excellent job!
    I built this kit when it was first released and, overall, found it wasn't too bad. However, there are a number of areas which are over-engineered, and/or too 'gimmicky', and the cockpit did not fit - none of the parts would reach both sides of the fuselage !
    I had to so a lot of additional work to fit the cockpit, and also had to hack apart the engine cowling frames, in order to get the cowlings to fit.
    Oh, and the horrible vinyl tyres did not fit the wheel hubs either - I had to 'shim' them and seal them in place!
