This review is from: Revell 1:48 P – 51D Mustang (Toy) Customer Video Review Length:: 1:28 Mins This is another great model from Revell. The kit comes with a easy to read but very detailed instruction sheet that includes photographs of the real plane for reference as well as suggested readings. The kit itself is very straightforward to build. The details are very good and you have optional materials to put on the plane such as external fuel tanks and machine guns. It took me a few evenings to build it. I recommend this kit to everyone. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (5) Reply 42 of 46 people found the following review helpful Great model kit, August 8, 2009 By James Glen Tidwell – = Durability: = Fun: = Educational: This review is from: Revell 1:48 P – 51D Mustang (Toy) This was my first model kit to build in almost 10 years. I was impressed by the simplicity of putting the parts together,as almost no fitting was required at all. Everything went together as you would expect them to. Attention to detail on the part of Revell was very nice. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (3) Reply 21 of 23 people found the following review helpful Unbeatable Value!, May 7, 2014 By UKguyInUSA – This review is from: Revell 1:48 P – 51D Mustang (Toy) Customer Video Review Length:: 8:10 Mins After putting together my first Revell kit- P-40B Tiger Shark and being extremely disappointed about the quality of that model kit, I was a little shy about giving Revell a second chance. Well, I’m glad that I did, because after building this historical classic in the Big Beautiful Doll colors I was pleasantly delighted! The positives: This kit goes together extremely well, without the need for filler- just smoothing down of the glue joint. The quality of the molded parts are very good, considering the mold was manufactured in 1977- very little flash, very little sink, no ejector pin stress marks and minimal part-line miss-match. The decals are excellent, as you can see from the photos of my build, they look painted on. The cockpit was reasonably detailed, along with the pilot and the inclusion of molded in seat belts on the seat. The bubble canopy is crystal clear, except that mine had a couple of small scratches on the port side. The bubble canopy is designed to enable it to be displayed open or closed and the wheel assembly is nice and sturdy. Wheel wells are included in this kit, unlike the P-40B Tiger Shark that just had holes through the lower wing sections. The kit offers two sets of decals for different aircraft. The negatives: Because of the age of the kit, there are no recessed panel lines for highlighting, just raised lines and rivet details, which can be lost when smoothing joints down. The air flow exhaust flap when assembled is floppy and just hangs down, so I permanently glued mine into a position I was happy with. It would have been nice if the ailerons / flaps were separate assemblies that could be modeled in the down position showing the internal structure for contrast. Regarding the squadron recognition letter / number decals, I believe their scale to be incorrect and larger than the actual plane. Overall Conclusion: This kit is a joy to build, goes together well, looks great when complete and is unbeatable value at $11.99 for what you get inside the box. Revell have redeemed themselves with this one and I want to buy another one already so that I can paint and decorate it in the second version of colors and decals that are offered. If you’re a beginner…it’s a must, just be patient with the decals! If you’re a more seasoned builder, it’s still worth buying to fill in some quick build times and you can always add some extras to enhance it. You won’t be disappointed! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (4) Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
