North American P-51D Mustang "Petie 3rd" (Dragon 1:32 #32001)

The infamous Dragon P-51D in 1/32, denouced widely as unbuildable. This model was started before Tamiya announced their kit, and I have to admit that during this build I did consider scrapping it more than once.

In the end, I am glad I did not, if only to document an exericise in stubborness. Despite the challenges and limitations of this kit, I am very happy (and proud) of the end result.
