Assuming this has not been posted on LSP, click the following link to an HLJ-produced YouTube video from the 2011 Shizouka Hobby Show. Fast forward to about 02:35 for the Tamiya 1/32 P-51D.

I have said it before and I'll say it again. That is one SWEET kit! I suppose that if I had to be put out of business it was nice for it to happen with such a wonderful product.

It really does look like a marvelous piece of engineering.

Hey Scott, thanks for sharing the link :thumbsup:

I love the thought that appears to have gone into this kit and the options that Tamiya have included from the get-go.
The facility to display the finished model either on her own wheels or on an in-flight display stand within a few minutes depending on ones mood is very appealing.

I'm not a prop bloke normally but my goodness this model is a tempting.

Tamiya.....you rawk!! :punk:

Great Scott...(no pun intended),

I've got to get my wife to pre-order one of those
for Father's Day! What an AWESOME Mustang. This
is just amazing!

I could keep blathering about this kit, but I'd
probably run out of adjectives to describe it.

I have to watch that again!!!

It is a sWEEEEEET lookin piece!!!!! I cant wait to build one of the presumably thousands that will be built........32nd models that is. This kit could really put a visible change on the 32nd scale map, and bring a lot of NON LSPers into the fold, as it will likely be one of the best and well engineered, well fitting and accurate kits in any scale.

I wonder how many people are going to "lock" the gear down, and fill or glue in those panels...... :hmmm:

I was thinking the same thing. Scott was manhandling that canopy! :)

That's cool but I hope that you don't fill those panal lines as they were not filled like the rest of the leading edge area. That access panel was used to service the landing gear pivit area. I know thw panal line thing has gotten old but I wanted to point that out.
