    Been wanting to build a GOOD model of a P51B/C in 1/32nd Scale for years! Nearest I got was cross-kitting the old Revell kit with the Hasegawa P51D, which turned out reasonable, but written off when it tried to land from 6 feet after 'flying' from top shelf of display site!
    Seen an ad for a UK hobbyshop site showing the Trumpeter P51B in 1/32nd, but don't want to commit £40 (relatively expensive for U.K.) if it not very good.
    Anyone built this or even seen it? Any reviews or comments would be most welcome. Particularly want it with original canopy, not 'Malcolm' hood.
    Thanks in anticipation, Blue Skies to all!

    Thanks Lucky, that's just what I was looking for!
    It seems I'll have to raid the penny jar! I'll let you know if I eventually get it, but I think I'm going to have to move my studio around, shift the easel and build new shelves; I'm rapidly running out of space!
    Thanks again, and by the way, that was a quick reply!!

    Hmm....those were a couple of interesting reviews, to say the least!
    Thanks Lucky...

    I've been studying 'Ding Hao' as a 1/48 project...soon!
