    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.


    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
    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.
    2 styles of exhaust stubs, optional position flaps, drop tanks.
    Detailed pictorial instructions.

    OPTIONS: Single sheet of InvisaClear decals by Scalemaster. These decals are
    very precisely printed so that the clear carrier layer is kept to
    a minimum and does not show on the completed model.

    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.
