If you want an easy-to-build, perfect fitting, well detailed kit, this is it. The only complaints I've ever heard leveled against the Tamiya Mustang is that the main wing spar is in the wrong position in the wheel bays, and the canopy tends to sit too high when open – which I corrected. Cool Finished with various shades of Alclad, Swiss markings were masked and painted.

That is puuuuurrrty. Very Happy I have a Swiss Me-109 from Franklin Mint that is a fave with the larger WWII Swiss markings.

Wonderful work, Mike.

Thanks pw Smile Pretty much any aircraft looks good in Swiss markings, IMHO.
