Welcome to my first ever Mustang build. The Revell 1/32 P-51D Mustang. For the 453rd Bomber Group Museum. Last year I think it was I was asked if I could help out along with a few other members of our fine parish to build some kits for James Clarey who owns the 453rd Bomber group Museum that @CedB took the Americans ( PC and Cookie ) to when they visited a year or so ago. I agreed and was sent a list to choose from. Like a kid in a tow shop I dived at a !/32 mustang. I have never built one but did have one in the stash. The one I was sent was the Revell kit that I do already
OOB with SSI decals. So, definitely not Tamiya quality, but it’s very nice and good value. The only shape issues I encountered were the main gear doors. They are flat, with no contour. You’d have a time getting them to fit for an inflight model. Fit was excellent all around. No major issues. The wings have no rivet detail, so it’s coreect for a newer bird with hadn’t had its coating worn and ablated yet. But also no rivet detail on the flaps whatsoever. Cockpit detail is good, but strangely NO effort was made to add a harness. No parts, no decals.
