RB 51 ?

Here are some better images of Seminar models 1/32 scale Mustang RB 51 Red Baron speed racer. I believe this kit to be a cheat. The real RB 51 has a completely different canopy, contra rotating propellers, etc, etc. This kit is just a P 51 D kit in the RB 51 markings. Unless of coarse this is the original RB 51. Somehow I doubt it. Update- Dave Porter has been able to provide us with a much more accurate representation of the RB 51 Speed Racer. As you can see there is a marked difference which leaves me to wonder why the owners RB 51 would allow the creation of the Seminar model. It couldn't have been for the money, not very many of these kits were sold.

Here is a picture of High Planes 1/72 scale RB-51 Red Baron Mustang. This kit is multimedia including resin and white metal parts. It was a very long and demanding build as it is a low pressure injection molded model. The decals fit well and are very accurate. The paint is Tamiya acrylic gloss.

I didn't think that the Seminar model could look that good.

There is finally several accurate represenations of this aircraft in 1/72, 1/48, and 1/32 scale.
