I'm hoping they come out with a new B or C. I have the Tamiya already in my stash.

I wonder if Revell managed to get the wheel wells right and the other oft made mistakes from other manufacturers?

I would love to see a new tooled B model . The Trump kit is in the stash , but there are a lot of issues with it .

Chris , from what I have see of the test shots and builds for the release of this kit . It does have the wheel wells going back to the rear spar .

Tracking says that it is here in the city , will have it Monday !

Chris, they did get it right! The wheel wells are correctly depicted with the straight rear "wall" (i.e., the front of the forward wing spar) as well as separate parts for the ribs and structural details. NICE!

Hi there

I'm really looking forward to Terri's review. For around 30 instead of 130 for Tamiya's kit, this should be a huge hit if Revell have nailed it!

It's nice to see they've gone for an early tail first, but I must admit I'd have preferred a P-51B/C - and that could have cornered the market if they'd done a good enough job on it. But if you're aiming for the widest possible market, it's probably the bubble-top Mustang that will always sell best.

All the best

Rowan

mine arrived. Looks magnificent in the box. Under 30 GBP inc of postage via model hobbies in the UK (although I believe RRP is around 36). First thing that struck me is that there are an awful lot of build stages to complete before you get anywhere near to putting the fuselage halves together - lots of detail! Revell really appear to be pulling out the stops on this 32nd range - good luck to 'em!
