TAMIYA F-51D

Recommended Posts

Hello again!

 

Have there been any rumors about Tamiya releasing an F-51D to round out the offering?

 

Thanks very much!

If you can't wait, just buy the P-51D kit and get some AM decals and HVAR hard points and you have yourself an F-51D.

Was the Tiny Tim ever used on a P-51 other than in testing at Eglin Field?

 

And BTW, Tamiya has two sets of ejection seat harnesses on the PE fret for their 1/48 F-16 "Detail Up" set, yet we're still waiting (and waiting, and waiting, and waiting) for them to release a 1/48 F-16 station wagon.

I'll have to check this evening but I'm fairly sure that the wings have the HVAR mounting points located but flashed over.

MUST have another kit to add to my stash!!

 

Thanks,

The Grey Matter un-cuffed prop is a Aeroproducts prop not a Hamilton Standard (HS), the blades are a different shape. I believe the second release of the Tamiya kit in AP markings has both HS Props?

Thanks for all the feedback.

I was able to pick up the mounts for the HVAR and I could use the prop from the old Monogram 1/32nd Mustang - I believe that would work.

Still trying to confirm what the cockpit interior would look like and what "updates" would need to be done to make a post war/Korean War vintage plane.

If you've got any suggestions, I'd sure appreciate it!

 

Of course, 15 minutes before I finish this "conversion", Tamiya will release the kit with the very markings I've got in mind and that I will have to piece together.

What a fantastic hobby!!!

 

Thanks again,
