Airfix 1/48 P-51D Mustang

The fuselage has been closed up and I can now get on with the rest of the build. Airfix have done the tail as a separate assembly which is odd however if you look carefully they have moulded in an offset to port so maybe that's why they did it. Anyway dry fitting the tail assembly revealed a couple of issues which prevented it from fitting properly so after a think I decided to cut off the locating pegs at the front of the tail and the small ledges that sit inside the rear fuselage;

After this the fit of the tail unit was much better although I think I'm going to have a couple of awkward filling jobs around here as the area in front of the rear tail wheel housing isn't a stellar fit either.
