After starting in February, Tamiya’s 1/32 P-51K is finally complete. Aftermarket accessories include Eduard resin wheels and Aeroscale 1/32 instrument decals. The kit was a dream to build, highly recommended. The only problem that I had with the kit were the decals. even with aggressive setting solution they would not conform to panel lines and rivet detail. they were the only letdown of the kit. It was painted with various shades of Alclad, as well as Tamiya acrylics. This was my first time painting a NMF finish, so there are a few mistakes painting wise.
I would absolutely recommend this kit to someone who wants to try their first 1/32 kit or even for someone who is highly experienced in the scale. Due to the high part count and complex assemblies it is not the best kit for first time model builders however.
