This is a set of resin 1/48 P-51D Mustang Early Tail Conversion - Filletless from Ultracast.   This resin set contains one hollow-cast replacement tail section with separate rudder and tail wheel doors. This kit enables the modeller to back-date Tamiya's P-51D (#61040) to the early version P-51D which lacked a fillet. Decals are provided in the Tamiya kit to build T. J. Chistian's LOU IV of the 375th Fighter Squadron which was a filletless version, as displayed on the side of the kit box.

The  P-51 D experienced stability issues when the bubble canopy was introduced and the fillet was added to the back of the fuselage spine to solve this problem.  The Very early P-51 D did not have this and this 1/48 P-51D Mustang Early Tail Conversion - Filletless helps you replicate this quickly and easily.

You can buy this and many other detail items directly from Ultracast.
