The infamous Dragon P-51D in 1/32, denounced widely as un-buildable. 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 exercise in stubbornness. Despite the challenges and limitations of this kit, I am very happy (and proud) of the end result.
