Hasegawa 1/32 Israeli P-51D

Recommended Posts

I had this kit laying in the stash for years. Dad bought it at a swap and sell for the drop tanks and then gave it to me, but it was missing the spinner. Fortunately Wumm was able to send me a replacement and Iain sent me some decals for Israeli Mustangs he wasn't going to use which probably saved it from being turfed into the bin (because I don't normally build older kits). I scribed some surface detail including dzus fasteners and knocked back all the raised rivets and panel lines. I did consider putting a resin cockpit in, but for the price, it just wasn't worth it. It's not a bad older model and although being surpassed by the Tamiya offering, if you're on a budget you can generally pick this kit up for 20 bucks at a swap and sell. As for white 19, it was shot down by ground fire over the Sinai peninsula in October 1956.
