Hi all,

I have been working on the test shot of Revell's 1/32 scale P-51D Mustang this week, spending most of my time in the cockpit.

I have just posted a new article showing the assembly and painting of the cockpit. You can see it on the What's New page or by following the direct link below:


I have been very impressed with this kit so far. More to follow!

Bye for now,

Sorry Anon,

No news on either.

The sprees I am working on were described as the final test shot, so I gather production will be starting soon.

I reckon you can pre-order with confidence though!

I will advise when I have more details.

Bye for now,

Hannants has it listed for October under their Future Releases for this month. Hope that this is the latest information they have from RoG and that it's the case. Looking forward to this kit and Brett's work in the cockpit is just stunning.

Happy modeling!

Great article

Well this is one article I am going to print out and save for the upcoming kit. I am curious on which cockpit placard decals will be included with the kit since Mr. Sutherland helped out with the decals?

I have found myself looking forward to this release more than just about any other, because I know and trust the designers, and because the anticipated price point will allow people to buy them by the boxload. And looking at that interior more than justifies my enthusiasm. happy.gif

Definitely. That said....

....I want a late D or K with the fin fillet and HVAR stubs so I can do Pacific Theatre. From the sprue shots I've seen, it's obviously forthcoming, I just have to be patient!

great cockpit Brett, but...

to be historical accurate the wooden cockpit floor was painted with black non-stick paint, also the ventalation system and the beam behind the armour seat were black, and also was black the radio rack mount as you can see in this still image from the North American production plant footage film, also the balsa wood blocks can be seen on the right side, they were usesd to secure the fuselage fuel tank, cheers
