My dream will come true when somebody releases a nice P-51 Razorback.

I don't know much about this - no invasion stripes?

Invasion stripes were ordered to be removed from upper surfaces in late June of '44. Some units painted over them, others literally removed them. Later in '44, only the stripes under the aft fuselage were required until they were omitted altogether in early '45. 

 

HTH,

D

I think a LOT of us have dreams about a beautiful new tool "B/C"!  Im hoping companies like Revell and someone higher end like Tamiya or KHM still bring us one, so like the D, we have choices of price and complexity.

I'm so glad he posted that. I am right now in the process of scribing the kit lower belly panel using correct drawings. Will be including it with my "late" tail set. Should have it molded tomorrow.

Good on you Radu for making that upper cowling piece separate for the early and late D’s!! Most manufacturers would ignore the panel line differences.

The part in question on the new sprue is the underside of the nose. The upper cowling is part of the fuselage sprue and is probably going to be the same in both kits. In the current D-5 release, you have to fill a panel in front of the windscreen, which I assume you won’t have to fill on the late release.
