After seeing the very nice example over on Plastic Pics a couple days ago, I went and dragged one of my two 1/32 Revell P-51Bs out to look over, and started making a "hit list" of what's wrong, and what I'd consider fixing. I'd be interested to hear other suggestions.

MUST FIX/REPLACE:
- New wheels (done)
- New tailwheel assembly (done)
- New prop blades (Ultracast?)
- Cockpit (Any resin options?)
- Sand/rescribe
- Exhausts (steal from another kit?)
- Markings (duh)

NOT GREAT BUT WON'T FIX:
- Wheel wells
- Nose width? (Looks like it may be skinny but can't really tell in the box)

LIVABLE:
- Canopies
- Overall outline aside from nose width

So, for those who know such things (Christian, you out there?), am I missing anything beyond the above?

Cheers,

Lynn
