Looks a very serviceable replacement for the old Hasegawa kit, and probably the Dragon kit, too.

No expert am I on shape issues for this type ... but so far the subdued and smooth surface detail looks to be right on the money!!

It does look good! Ill bet the price point alone will attract lots to it.

I'm thinking that they've got a decent kit going.  I can't speak to any shape issues as I don't have the kit and there are no glaring shape issues apparent in the photos.  The design team got the right sidewall correct (for the chosen version) without the IFF bell.  The wheel wells look to be correct and may very well give those who either can't or don't want to afford a Tamiya Mustang, a decent option at a fraction of the cost of the Tamiya kit. The interior placard decals are a very nice touch and really dress up the cockpit.  I've already built one Tamiya Mustang so I'm not really interested in another, no matter the price, one's enough for my case.

Can anyone comment on the infamous upper forward cowl that so many seemed to get wrong (as brought up by Jerry Rutman)?

I like it. Looks like a P-51 to me

I'll probably buy one now that I 've seen it.

Graft the nose to make an accurate B?

A fine representation of the North American + Rolls-Royce & Packard P-51 Mustang.

If you call it a Boeing I ain't buying one, just in case there's a hidden 219% tariff

You can bet there will be a "Boeing Licensed Product" tag on the box.
