Wingman Models' 1/48 scale
by Rafi Ben-Shahar
Tamiya's 1/48 P-51B Mustang is available online from Squadron.com for only $26.99!
This is a challenging model that represents a unique member in the Kfir family. Building experience is well within the mode of a short run kit.
There is plenty of work to cover seams on KInetic's Kfir plastic platform. Major surgery is required for the process of combining the plastic air-frame body with the resin nose.
Details are good in both plastic and resin parts, but the panel lines differ in shape. The vacuum formed canopy and its crude outlines stands out in a sharp contrast with the fine cockpit details.
Drop tanks seem to be old stock with crude joints and details.
In all, the TC2 is an attractive addition to an existing Kfir collection (as long as it does not receive close scrutiny.)
