Editorial Reviews

Review

“This book would be pretty good if it only covered the controversial P-51 variants, but it's set apart by an incredible rebuild of Modelcraft's badly-flawed 1/48 scale F-82G Twin Mustang nightfighter that takes up alomst a third of the book. Bravo! Buy this book!” ―Aerospace Modeler (No.9 Volume 3, Number 1)

“This book is very well-written, giving an enormous amount of information regarding the construction of each featured model... If you're a P-51 fan, there's no doubt that you WILL want this book on your shelf... I've actually read this book two or three already, and highly recommend it as a solid reference on detail-focused modeling in general, and on superdetailing the P-51 Mustang in particular.” ―Keith Pruitt, International Plastic Modelers' Society (December 2007)

“The articles and the excellent color photography provide a superb guide for those who, if they don't wish to replicate all the word, will be able to easily duplicate whatever portions they wish. In all, it is one of the better volumes in this series and one that I'm sure most of you will want to add to your library.” ―Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (August 2007)

“Osprey's Modelling series shows how advanced modelers use their knowledge, skills and expertise to create incredibly and correctly detailed models of all sorts... Each book discusses how a variety of model kits are used to make authentic looking WWII vehicles... If you are looking for books that provide the high detailing to take your miniatures to the next level, you should check these books out.” ―Michael Koznarsky, Historical Miniature Gamer (Issue 11)

“Military modelers will relish Stan Spooner's Modelling the P-51 Mustang, an in depth survey of how to model World War II's famous fighter craft. From the history of the Mustang to five building projects of varying complexity, military and hobbyist holdings will find this an excellent pick.” ―The Bookwatch (February 2008)

“All in all, this is a very useful modeller's guide to building the Mustang in 1/48 scale. The projects are well chosen to challenge and inspire modellers at all skill levels... Recommended.” ―Rowan Baylis, AeroScale (August 2007)

Format: Paperback
Another in the great series of Osprey Modelling books, Modelling the P-51 Mustang by Stan Spooner has only one fault, the title is just a little to short. If the book had been titled "Modelling the P-51 Mustang in 1/48 Scale" it would have much more accurate. If your only intrest is 1/48th scale, then this book is perfect for you and it deserves 5 stars. However, if you model in 1/72, 1/32, or 1/144th then you, like me, will be a bit disapointed with the coverage. If the title had told me this up front I would have know what to expect. Other than this one issue, I highly recommend the book.

The modeling guide is well written. All chapters provided excellent background on construction, painting and pitfalls. I would recommend anyone interested in building a P-51 to buy.

Nice book with good techniques. But all the builds are 1/48. Which is ok if that's what you build but a bit blinkered if you build other scales.
