Pavla U 72-163: P-51B/Mustang III tailplane, elevator and rudder




Scott Van Aken


For the KP 1/72 kit

After decades of reboxing their old kits from the 60's and early 70's as well as some from other places, KP released a new Mustang kit in several boxings. This was due to their being purchased by AZ Models so if you think it looks like an AZ kit, well it is.

However, not all is cherries. AZ stupidly molded the mass balance for the rudder in the fin and then provided a separate rudder without it. Pavla likes to provide upgrade bits that have separate tailplanes and elevators. In this case a new rudder is also included so you can cut out the area on the fin and have a proper rudder on your KP Mustang III.
