| Description

The North American P-5 l Mustang is viewed as one of the most iconic American fighters of the Second World War. Designed to an RAF specificatopn the Mustang was transformed once the Rolls Royce Merlin engine was installed. Its long range and excellent firepower made it a superb escort fighter, able to protect the bombers all the way to Berlin and back. After the war the P-51 saw service in Korea and was used by some air aims up untiol the early 1980s.

As one of the most capable fighter aircraft of WWII, the North American Mustang allowed Allied pilots to take a heavy toll of Luftwaffe aircraft, both in the air and on the ground.  With many units painting their aircraft in highly visible schemes, they hoped to lure Luftwaffe fighters into combat, whilst also aiding recognition of friendly aircraft in the melee of a dogfight.

 

Always a favourite with the modeller, this latest Mustang marks an aircraft flying with the 352nd Fighter Group, the famed ‘Blue Nosers’ of Bodney.

Worth it

The kit went together well with no problems at all with very good detail. The only complaint I have is the pilot is moulded in a weird way and doesn't sit all the way in his seat. It isn't a problem though. Decals are standard Airfix quality. This would be a great kit for both beginners and experts.

Airfix P-52D Mustang...

The fit of this kit is that good that if you are careful with dryfitting you need no glue to connect the fuselage and wings together. Knowing that can save time and work during assembly, masking, painting and decaling. It makes it easier to paint as well. There are also no need for any filling and sanding...

Concerning the canopy it´s easy to paint the frame first, dip the canopy in Johnson Clear and put it on the painted frame and let it dry. Then it´s "glued" to the frame.

Sad thing is that Airfix doesn't provide any uncuffed Aeroproduct's propeller for the RAF Mustang Mk. IVA. But other manufacturers have that propeller. Airfix just provide one type of exhaust as well but there's other ones that fits almost as good. There's also a nice photo etch set available for the Airfix P-51D.
