Let’s Build…
The P-51 Mustang

by Spencer Pollard

G.W.H.s 1/48 scale T-33A Shooting Star will be available online from Squadron.com




Let’s Build… The P-51 Mustang

Following on from the release of his Spitfire and Sea Fury books earlier this year, Spencer Pollard has released a detailed guide to the building and painting of the famous P-51B/D.


Following closely the design and philosophy of the earlier Spitfire and Sea Fury titles, ‘How to Build… The P-51D Mustang’ offers the modeller everything that they need to build a collection of models of this iconic aircraft in four scales: 1:144, 1:72, 1:48 and 1:32. In so doing, the reader will be taken through builds of the following subjects and kits:

  • Sweet 1:144 P-51B, ”DING HAO", 356th FS

  • Airfix 1:72 P-51D, 112 Squadron RAF

  • Tamiya 1:48 P-51B, ”Shangri La", 4th FG

  • Tamiya 1:48 P-51D, A Modern-Day Warbird

  • Airfix 1:48 P-51D, ”Little Indian", 2nd ACG

  • MENG 1:48 P-51D, City Of Winnipeg Squadron

  • Revell 1:32 P-51D, 307th FS/31st FG, Italy, 1944

Each chapter deals with the construction and painting of the models, offering ideas, hints and tips and where needed, additional details on getting the best from each individual kit. High quality paper, printing and layout, ensure that no detail is missed across the extended 56 pages of this new publication.
