Well that will be a nice mustang model that I will almost certainly never pick over the Tamiya.

Hoping for a no rivet wing...if so will buy one, should be a nice build also.

As I guessed in the thread relating to Tamiya's new tool 109 -" what's next- I know - another P - 51 " Had the subject right at least if not the manufacturer. If it follows their recent style I'm sure it will be very good but sorry folks - I just can't get excited over an aircraft that has been kitted to death.

Hey guys, where is the problem? Buy it or leave it, it's as simple as that .... We are not the majority of all model kit builders, maybe we are 5 % of them or even less. Those kits are not (mainly) made for us. Happy modelling! Torsten PS: I'll stay with my Tamiya ponies, still have a few of them in my stash.

Hi all I'd be more excited if it was a P-51B/C - and really excited if it was a P-51H (with a P/F-82 to follow)! But it's welcome in my book. The cockpit and wheel well look great, so it should be more accurate and better detailed than the classic Tamiya kit, and better detailed than either the recent Meng kit or Airfix's imminent release. Price-wise, the Profi-Pack will probably sit alongside Meng's kit in the UK, while the inevitable Weekend versions will compete with Airfix. Interestingly, Eduard have had early shots of the Airfix kit to prepare a mass of new upgrades to accompany its release. That clearly hasn't dissuaded them from releasing their own kit, so they must be pretty confident about its chances of success. It would have been nice to see it without a tail-fillet - but, as I say, it's a welcome release and could become the definitive 1:48 P-51D if Eduard don't drop the ball... All the best Rowan

Now if they do a family of variants to include the F-82. I'd be ecstatic!
