  1. Ah, well there you go. Cool. I'll be looking forward to that.
  2. .... it says Zvezda in the subject line?
  3. Hmm... One of my least favorite japanese fighters. And I already have several of the various Hasegawa versions anyway. So I'm not too excited. I would have been happier to see a new japanese twin from Tamiya. A light bomber perhaps. Oh well. I'm sure the kit will be nicer than the Hasegawa, and I like the included engine. Will probably pick one up eventually just because it's Tamiya. But still..... eh. Not setting my pants on fire like the new Airfix releases or even the nifty new Meng P-51D.
  4. I wouldn't be surprised if Eduard does a Tempest II after they get around to releasing their re-tooled Tempest V.
  5. I'm thinking the possibility of a Special Hobby Vc rebox is quite possible. Revell has reboxed Special Hobby kits before.
  6. Has this been mentioned already? Is this an old kit, a modified version of an old kit, or an all new kit? Anyone know? http://hlj.com/product/REV03940
  7. Would this in fact be the first kit in 1/48 to have a 'no fillet' option (assuming the Airfix kit DOES have it)?
  8. He was commenting specifically on the point raised about Corsairs re: wing fold options so there was no need for him to say anything to other posters, unless I'm much mistaken. He mentioned due regard for the fact that the topic is about P-51s by way of apology for veering off topic to address the wing fold issue.
  9. I want to highlight a few points of interest from the official announcement: "The new 1/48th Scale North American P-51D Mustang (A05131) will feature the impressive levels of detail associated with this slightly larger scale and will also incorporate a number of different build options for the modeller to consider. As you would expect, the model will be able to be finished in either flight, or static configuration, with the latter providing the modeller with a number of alternative options, such as canopy position, flaps and undercarriage door positioning. The kit will also allow t
  10. Since the Tamiya kits can be built with wings up or down, I can only assume you're hoping for a kit with 'one piece' wings that can't be built folded without major surgery on the modeler's part? I don't know about anyone else, but I think I'd prefer all kits of subjects with folding wings to come with the option to build with wings folded, when possible.
  11. At least the Tamiya kit is highly regarded. Is there much to be improved on? Hasegawa does later versions but I have no idea how good they are as I'm only interested in WWII era stuff.
  12. Yes, it's a topic of discussion at LSP.
  13. Tamiya has a pretty significant problem with the wheel wells. Both Airfix and Meng seem to have improved upon that shortcoming. Given that the Airfix is supposed to come with a load of optional extras, and will probably sell cheaper than Tamiya, I could see it possible becoming the 1/48 P-51D of choice... The Meng kit might be nice, but I suspect the price will be higher. Eduard version (if they don't cancel it in light of the competition from Airfix and Meng) will probably have great surface detail quality, and will benefit from the usual inclusions of PE, masks, and m
  14. So we've got a 1/48 P-51D coming from Meng soon, and also now the Airfix, with yet another announced by Eduard for later on. 3 new 1/48 P-51Ds. Hmmmm.... I like Mustangs, but even I'm feeling a little oversaturated.
