Differences between P-51B and P-51C?
Posted 13 December 2013 - 01:14 AM
P.S. I think I saw P-51B or C with P-51D fin extension, is that correct?

So i can have a good reference when remodelling my ancient but otherwise nice Hasegawa 1:72 -B kits, hahaha.

What Hal says ...
I personally don't think the incorrect floor is a deal-breaker, especially once the model is on the display shelf. Happily, if one wants to deal with it, there's a beautiful Jaguar resin cockpit set that's still in stock at their web site for $17.00:
In other respects, the Tamiya kit is beautifully engineered and fun to build. The optional open clam shell canopy works especially well.

I have the AM kit, but no decals. Would prefer to build it as something that is NOT NMF.
There's a photo of Bonnie B here:
...showing it in OD/NG camouflage with the dorsal fin fillet.
Kits World sheet KSW148090 has markings for Bonnie B (although the instructions show it without the DFF) It's out of stock at Sprue Brothers, but there's an eBay listing:

I said that recently - in response I was told that it wasn't true, that the main flaw in the Hasegawa kit was the leading edge sweep. As a result of which the kink was also wrong, but not in the way I thought. It does however have the correct 4 guns, but I don't think that's what you meant.

The Eduard PE perpetuates Tamiya's wells with "detailed" well walls. I used Aries resin on my -B, but it took a lot of scraping to get in. Tamiya stuck to their guns on their 1/48 -D, but in addition to various resin AM, A.M.U.R.Reaver has a nice PE set that I've have for the -D in my stash.
BTW, I found a marvelous video filled with great shots of a P-51B.
