Code: 4950344996353
Price: $36.99
**Tech Notes/Specs**
This is a Plastic 1/48 Scale RAF Mustang III Airplane Kit from Tamiya.

It's not widely known, but P-51's also served extensively with the British
Royal Air Force during WWII.  The Mustang III was the RAF equivalent of the
P-51B with a Rolls-Royce Merlin engine and the "razorback" fuselage.  Tamiya's
rendition of the RAF Mustang builds up into an impressive, highly detailed
1/48th scale replica with accurate interior and exterior detail.  High quality
water activated decals are included for three aircraft.

FEATURES: Highly detailed 1/48th scale plastic kit for static display.
Approximately 60 parts in medium grey and clear with fine recessed
panel lines.
Accurately captures features of P-51B: wings, gear doors, canopy.
Multi-part canopy may be posed open or closed - Malcolm Hood
Main wheels have separate hubs for easy painting.
Highly detailed cockpit with accurate instrument panel, seat, control
stick and rudder pedals, bulkheads, and sculpted pilot figure.
2 styles of exhaust stubs, optional position flaps, drop tanks.
Detailed pictorial instructions.

OPTIONS:  Single sheet of InvisaClear decals by Scalemaster.  These decals are
very precisely printed so that the clear carrier layer is kept to a
minimum and does not show on the completed model.

COMMENTS: As exquisite as the cockpit detail in this kit is, it does suffer
from a small accuracy problem.  In the original Allison powered
Mustangs the cockpit floor was actually the top surface of the
wing, resulting in a curved surface.  The change to the Merlin
engine required modifications which made the fuselage taller.
Consequently, a flat wooden floor was installed in all P-51's
from the B model onwards.  However, this kit has the curved floor
appropriate to an early Mustang.  It's easily fixed with some sheet
sheet styrene.
