I was eagerly looking forward to this, since it's quite different as an interwar model. But I'm disappointed and put off by the vinyl tracks. Boo ICM!

Katya Hodgson I watched a Russian review, and whilst subtitles were not great, apparently superglue worked very well on the rubber tracks.

Either way, i'm really looking forward to building this little one, just need to decide on how to paint it before it arrives. :)

Rui S Rubber tracks are Also easier and Much faster to finish ;).
Trumpeter Has the right policy in this Mater, (IMO, YMMV etc) but i give the to ICM too.

Nigel "Rubber tracks are Also easier and Much faster to finish"

I didn't realise that it was a race! ;)

Katya Hodgson Not everyone likes or is able to fiddle around with independent links... the Hobbyboss T-18 I ordered for example has them, and i'm honestly terrified.
11. April at 07:46:45
Nigel Some companies, some kits, have both vinyl and independent links (or link and length as a second-best option). Best of both worlds! :D
11. April at 07:49:02
Kamil Feliks Sztarbala best, but only for track links with separate tracks construction.
11. April at 13:42:45
Rui S Not a race but it could be. At least they don't ruin My mojo. ;)
For me cleaning individual track links his a race that never ends :(
And with the quantity of ready made solutions in the aftermarket like pigments (like eurpean earth, Russiam earth etc.) colours, mud, grime, streaking etc, by vallejo, mig and ak, and others, sometimes the ONLY thing missing his a already made and painted kit. A very expensive race, if you get my drift 8)

The Old Tanker I remember when all we had were rubber tracks... Actually, RUBBER BAND tracks, because most of our kit's had electric motors in them, so we could drive em' around after they were built. To me, it's actually so 1960's!

Nigel My Achin' Back was a P-51D-25. The Zoukei-Mura kit offers a tail antennae option for later variants, so that will be included.

My Achin' Back was actually a P-51D, not a P-51B (correct on the KW website)

But that's not the only problem with this decal set. KW state that this aircraft was flown by Lt. Robert Dickmeyer. According to the source that they referenced, though, not only was it flown by Lt. Philo Burney but the serial number was 44-73165. There is no photo of this aircraft on the site.

Needless to say, although I have raised this with KW, they are either very busy or this falls into the 'awkward question, let's hope it goes away' category.

Nigel I should point out that it wasn't my intent to find fault with the decal set. I wanted to know what version the aircraft was because the Zoukei-Mura kit offers a tail antennae option for later variants.

I'm going to assume that because this aircraft was NMF it was later war and therefore had the antennae.
14. June at 18:57:44
Nigel According to the American Air Museum in Britain, it was a P-51D-25, which is in keeping with antennae according to the ZM instruction booklet:

Funny. AeroScale's review of Eduard's previous Bf-109 noted the only low as being "Not the most colourful of markings".

Now Eduard up the ante with not one by three marginally less colourful schemes. Talk about thumbing your nose. :)
