Two Big Mustangs. One Old. One New.

I’ve got my hands full right now, with three fantastic kits on the bench – Tamiya’s 1/48 P-51D Mustang and 1/32 Spitfire Mk.VIII, and Cyber-Hobby’s Panzer III Ausf.L Vorpanzer.

But that doesn’t mean I can’t look ahead, right?

And, looking ahead, I’m seeing something big.

Okay, two somethings.

Two 1/32 scale Mustangs. One old. One new. Head-to-head.

In one corner – a 1/32 Hasegawa P-51D.

In the other – the brand-spankin’ new 1/32 Tamiya P-51D Mustang.

Why?

Three reasons.

  • First – to demonstrate the Tamiya kit’s superiority versus the vintage Hasegawa.
  • Second – to show that the much cheaper Hasegawa ($20 on eBay) can still be built into a pretty great looking Mustang
  • Third – becasue, why not?
Now…I still have to finish the Spit, at least before I take this on. Oh, and I have to get my hands on the Tamiya ‘Stang, which is still on pre-order. But maybe a month from now…watch out!
