Here we go with the next project, N.A. 51 D Mustang from Tamiya. The kit will receive additionally the complete cockpit and wheel bay from Aires, Quickboost exhausts, M2 guns from Master and decals from Print Scale 48-039 (don’t know yet which one of the planes covered).
After few hours I managed to replace the detail in the cockpit, which was easy and fit the wheel well, which was a nightmare, with all the necessary surgery, thinning, swearing, thinning, swearing… But I’m sure it was well worth the effort. Did you know, that probably most, if not all, of the 1:48 Mustang kits have the wheel well completely wrong. Just find any photo and compare, the back wall of the well is positioned in reality much deeper than Tamiya proposed.
