  1. Hi Olivier, The MENG flaps are slightly bigger, than Tamiya's offer and it seems more correct. Tamiya's ailerons slightly longer, than MENG, so it is possible to shorten them by 1mm and made cutout in the wing slightly bigger in depht and width. The broader chord will not be notiseable in extended position. Have you seen the A.M.U.R. Reaver other PE bits for Tamiya P-51D? Cockpit and Radio and Wheel Wells ?
  2. Look at this P-51D-10NA 44-14245 Floogie II. She still does'n have the button but already has new K-14 field-installed gunsight. http://www.americanairmuseum.com/media/459 And one more interesting detail - the front retractable part of the flap is also painted over by green.
  3. There are masters for new resin sets. 1/32 for Revell new P-51D DSC_9746 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr DSC_9742 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr DSC_9754 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr DSC_9753 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr DSC_9750 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr DSC_9749 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr DSC_9748 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr 1/48 for Meng kit this time DSC_9759 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr DSC_9755 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr DSC_9761 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr The masters are maid using original NAA plas, so the rivets size and number are true for scale.

    The flare buckets will be in production soon!
  5. Hello Olivier, This is flap riveting pattern drawn for Meng P-51D flaps replacement. Rivet patterns here from NAA plans. Flap by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr
  6. This picture gives you an idea how it looks like DSC_0450 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr
  7. There are templates for fuselage part master (for vacu) and armored glass. I made the upper fuselage part from thin clear sheet using vacuum formihg process. Take in account that P-51B has different engine cowling profile. It rises slightly higher towards winshield in comparison with P-51D, so yo'll need some additional work to blend smoothly the new fuselage top and P-51D cowling.

  8. Hi Antonio, some years ago I started to convert Dragon's P-51D into B model. This work haven't finished yet, but I made some research and drew scale plans for some parts. Here is 1/32 P-51B cockpit. You need just download full size image and print in real size to get 1/32 paper drawing. P51B_cockpitarrangement1 by Alexey Matvienko, on Flickr
  9. This is lower cowling panel for D-5/D-10/ D-15 models. and this type was introduced on D-20 model. Tamiya's layout represents D-25 and D-30 panels and even such representation is just slightly similar to real thing, so you need to rescribe this section completely.
  10. There are two new versions of discontinued sets. RC4823 instead of RC4817 New PE set PE4820 Su27/30 louvres and meshes intended for these two types only. There will be separate sets for Su-33 and Su-35S versions.
  11. Just for Su-35 or Su-30MKI/SM. They will fit to Hobby Boss plastic with slight modification.
  12. New set of 1/48 vectoring thrust exhausts for Kitty Hawk Su-35 release.
  13. Exactly! BUT... You don't know true sizes of the model. If you take into consideration, that HB fuselage is shorter about 5-6mm at the wing trailing edge, than should be, so the overall proportions will be absolutely different. The HB model is made using 4+ drawing and absobed all the mistakes from it, but the overall shapes are very good, exept front canopy sides, shorter fuselage, more swept trailing edge of fixed wing section and some minor issues.

    Not bad kit. In accuracy aspect - very good shapes generally. One bad thing, that it's made definitely using 4+ drawing, so collected all mistakes from it. They are: wrong windscreen sides shape, fuselage is 5mm shorter somwhere in the wing trailing edge area, wrong angle of the wing fixed section trailing edge (inner flaps sections), some minor surface details mistakes. Overall - much easier to build, then Kitty Hawk, with pretty decent level of details and accuracy model. I like it.
