Could somebody with a good knowledge of P-51s say if there is an Alison-engined variant that has the wings of the B/C ?

 

The A-36 Invader and the P-51A both have the same four .50cal wing guns, so you could use the wing from the Arma kit when it comes out; the landing lights were not the same. (You would have to add the dive brakes if building an A-36.) All of the Allison Mustangs had the same wing and landing gear, but  the landing lights, armament, and radiator inlets/outlets aren't the same for all of them. The Valiant Wings Airframe in Miniature on the early Mustangs would be an excellent reference to see all the detail differences between all the variants.

I'd advise caution on that recommendation - they don't spot the difference in fuselage depth between the Allison engined and Merlin engined variants for a start.

The photo's and technical manual extracts are good, but any scale drawings and isometric drawings or descriptions purporting to show differences between variants need to be verified for errors and omissions

 and I don't think the P-51A had wing pylons for stores or fuel tanks.

 

This is not exatly true....   they had it mounted. They carried fuel tanks and bombs, and even bazooka tubes.

Yes, and they failed to comment on the main spar/rear wheel bay inaccuracies in any of the kit reviews, but it still is an excellent overall reference, which is what I said. (Not everybody is blessed with the encyclopedic knowledge of an Edgar Brooks or a reference library like Dana Bell- myself included!)

Yes, I missed that, but I just now got my copy, and I haven't had a chance to read it carefully in its entirety. I have removed the incorrect statement in my original post- thanks for letting me know, Dave.  I apologize for the misinformation. If I have any Mustang-related questions, I always go to the P-51 SIG and ask the experts.
