Good work there Mr P, looks great. What's next?

The opening essay isn't ready yet, but I hope to have "Swords of the Unjust" begun this evening. Just some research to finish up.

Beautiful model! Happy you finished it but then selfishly sad I can no longer enjoy this excellent thread. Hopefully another build soon!

And we're live. Stay tuned for my next thrilling adventure, inevitably involving at least one gluey fingerprint, in Swords of the Unjust:

But enough about Terry's P-51H.

 

I couldn't possibly comment on Terry's P 51H as I've never seen it!

The big question is, does it really exist .............. 🤭

Well it's a typical RS kit. Nice fine detail and it looks accurate for sure, but nothing like a top quality injection moulded offering. The usual things like no location pins and although there are nice internals, they all need work to make them fit. Some of the finer U/C parts that support the main gear are resin and extremely small and delicate and not that well moulded. I managed to break mine and had to scratch build those and the tail wheel. But with some decent effort, a nice looking build can be obtained. I just think that this Arrma offering looks to be way way ahead!

 

I'm sure you will enjoy the challenge!

This is good to know Terry as I just got one from my wife for Christmas.  I saw there were no locator pins and pushed it a little farther down in the stash until I have the courage.

Arrived late to this. Great to see you back, as usual a stunning build, woven into the always interesting PC life journey. I'm not one for building Mustangs but this has whetted my appetite. I have an Arma Hurricane in the stash and this has stimulated me to go and retrieve it.

I succumbed to temptation on the strength of this thread, and the kit arrived today.

I have a few things to finish off first, but shall content myself with fondling the Precious in the stash every now and then until the time comes.

Success! I always hope my builds help people decide if they like and want a kit after watching an idiot build it.

Please don't do yourself down; we all make errors.

Much, thank you! Grant, who was too young for vaccination, was the hardest hit, and aside from some lingering issues with Grant South, is pretty much all recovered. He is, unfortunately, still home with me while I try to work, but I just found a distraction for him:
