1:48 P-51 Pilot

#AL4072

Introduction

Plusmodel offers aeroplanes modellers fans, a quick and easy way to complement a simple vignette with a 1:48 scale P-51 Mustang (WWII).

 

 

When I sat on my workbench and opened the box containing this item, my first thought was: “Nice! No need to glue parts!”

If I could label this release I would retain: efficient and straight forward.

What’s on the box?

The clear plastic box, shows what you get, one resin piece containing a 1:48 representation of a WW2 P-51 jockey in a relax pose, retaining one hand on the hip and another one above the parachute bag in a pose that I could describe as looking for his plane after another working’s day!

Despite no painting guide is supplied, the label’s back is printed with a large full colour draw of the figure. Lots of inspiration on this subject through a quick internet search using your favourite search engine.

A small mould line is detected along the length of the legs, most probably due to the cast process, but nothing that a modelling knife and low abrasive sand paper won’t fix.

As by the pictures, the detail is adequate and good quality brush and steady hands can create a very appellative complement to a P-51 in 1:48 scale

Conclusion

This is a nice and easy addition to any 1:48 WWII P-51 Mustang out there!

A simple base with the bird and pilot is always a perfect duet. Like ying and yang !

Highly recommended!
