1:48 Eduard Kit Review And Build Showcase USAF


A brand new P-51D Mustang kit to close the book on this aircraft in 1:48? Perhaps...



Here is my build of the brand-new Eduard 1/48 P-51D Mustang that replicates Freddie Ohr’s mount from the 52nd Fighter Group.

This is a very fine kit that’s a lot of fun to build and actually, a bit of a challenge to paint – especially in this scheme. Once again, I’ve tried to recreate the look and feel of the natural metal fuselage and then painted wings and trim and then, tried to capture their weathered look without overdoing it – I hope I’ve achieved that aim!

This one will form a very long review in the October 2019 issue of Model Airplane International. In the meantime, I really hope you like seeing this impressive new kit, built and painted.






I'm formerly the editor in charge of Military In Scale magazine and latterly, Model Airplane International. Editing duties to one side, I'm now a full-time modelmaker with Doolittle Media, working to supply modelling articles and material for a number of their group titles, including MAI and Tamiya Model Magazine International. I'm also an avid fan of Assassin's creed, Coventry City FC and when the mood takes me, a drummer of only passing skill. Here though, you'll find what I do best: build models and occassionally, write about them!

    Spencer: Such a beautiful kit. I asked myself this week,”what will that beauty look like when Spencer Pollard builds it?” Now we have the answer. Great build. Thanks for sharing!

    A very nice, clean build of a classic!
