  • PRODUCT INFORMATION

    This is a Plastic 1/48 P-51B Mustang Airplane from Tamiya.

    The first Allison powered P-51's were good airplanes but lacked the high
    altitude performance to be effective bomber escorts. That changed when the
    basic P-51 airframe was mated with a Rolls-Royce Merlin engine to create the
    P-51B. Tamiya's rendition of the Mustang builds up into an impressive, highly
    detailed 1/48th scale replica with accurate interior and exterior detail. High
    quality water activated decals are included for three aircraft.

    FEATURES

    Highly detailed 1/48th scale plastic kit for static display.
    Approximately 60 parts in medium grey and clear with fine recessed
    panel lines.
    Accurately captures features of P-51B: wings, gear doors, canopy.
    Multi-part canopy may be posed open or closed - Malcolm Hood
    included.
    Main wheels have separate hubs for easy painting.
    Highly detailed cockpit with accurate instrument panel, seat, control
    stick and rudder pedals, bulkheads, and sculpted pilot figure.

    COMMENTS

    As exquisite as the cockpit detail in this kit is it does suffer from
    a small accuracy problem. In the original Allison powered
    Mustangs the cockpit floor was actually the top surface of the wing
    , resulting in a curved surface. The change to the Merlin engine
    require modifications which made the fuselage taller.
    Consequently, a flat wooden floor was installed in all P-51's from
    the B model onwards. However, this kit has the curved floor
    appropriate to an early Mustang. It's easily fixed with some
    sheet styrene.
