Mark's Models (Starfighter Decals) has acquired the resin masters for the Medallion Models series of aftermarket detail sets and has started reissuing them. If the name Medallion Models doesn't seem familiar, it was an aftermarket detail company that existed well before the brand names we know today, and before the advanced resin casting we expect today. Mark's Models has taken the masters and brought them into the 21st Century and you can see in the image below that these castings are now what we expect.
Cast in gray resin, this set renders the landing flaps of the P-51 Mustang in 1/48 scale and can be used with virtually any P-51 (or A-36) kit in this scale. Simply remove the molded-on flaps, adjust the fit, blank off any openings in the wing, and position these flaps accordingly.
You can purchase this detail set directly from Medallion Models on their website.
My sincere thanks to Mark's Modelsfor this review sample!
