Re: JC Wings P-51D
its "correct' for an airshow circuit warbird in super polished just out of the paint shop condition.
chris, you may want to read forums such as this in the future before buying models. while a shiny p51 can actually look pretty cool, i think the overwhelming consensus is that witty wings p51, which serves as the basis for jc's repaints, was irredeemably awful. "stinky", the republic of korea one, and a few others were selling for GBP 2.50 at uk airshows at some point.
while not perfect, hobbymaster's 1/48 p51d is quite a lot better. if you look very hard you might still be able to find their 'petie' somewhere. lovely model by my estimation.
if you're committed to 1/72, then do a search for dragon's petie. hard to find at this stage, sure. but a very nice model and the search is part of the 'fun' of this hobby.
