The P-51D/K with its bubble-top canopy was perhaps the best-known version of the Mustang. It was also the most widely used variant of the Mustang, a grand total of 8102 machines of this type being produced (6502 at Inglewood and 1600 in Dallas)

The very detailed instructions leave no doubt about the placement of every part and will faithfully follow you , if I intend to make it OOB .
Since the general fitting of the parts is excellent , all you need is to gather the proposed materials (paints, tools , glue ) and start building the model . I chose to use the suggested colors (Vallejo) although I have a small complaint about the Lime Green (70.827) , and its use as Zinc Chromate primer green . The construction goes on easily , and does not need much comment , so let it go as a photostory .

So , this is it ! One of the best models in the market is just finished and gone to my collection .
The real question that lingers in the minds of many of us is : how much distance there is (if any) between theory (on the box review) and reality (building the model OOB) ?
Let’s try to give an answer to those questions …
Starting from the overall fitting of the model parts , and giving a score up to 10 this kit takes...11 !
Yes , fitting is far and above any kit that I has build in the past , although some pieces are quite complex .
Overall detail is obvious the best you can have  in and out of the model and is beyond and far the best it has to offer the market at this time .
Decals are the most elastic , durable, well printed , properly centered and realistic in their shades , with excellent adhesive  abilities .
Who prints those decals , are a big mystery , but he know very well his work .
Even the instructions are perfect and really professional , leaving no doubt about what goes where , and with “different than usual” print .
So , not miss anything from such a kit ? Hmm , yes , maby … another one SWS kit !
Very highly recommended , a must for modellers .

After all , I like to thanks Zoukei – Mura for honnored us with their trust and provides this sample,as well for their ongoing  collaboration .
