Today we want to show you some WIP pics of the P-51B/C with the birdcage style canopy. It really changes the look of the P-51 and it's obvious why they changed to the bubble style canopy with the "D" model and some "B" airframes had their birdcage replaced with the 'Malcolm Hood' canopy which was a semi-bubble modification. We will also model the Malcolm Hood.
Also, if you happen to have any detailed references on Malcolm Hood's canopy frame, rails or emergency release mechanism please share them with us. We could use some more detailed pictures or drawings of it.
The P-51B/C is unfortunately behind schedule and should have been ready by now, but she is getting ever closer to release and is likely to be finished next month.
Also, here is a pic of our American bomber pilot model ready to face some German flak!
