なお、 britmodeller.com というサイトの [1/48 - North American P-51D Mustang by Airfix - CADs+sprues - release August 2017] というページには、色々な写真と共に以下のようなアナウンスが書かれています。
As we began to develop our Workbench blog, it quickly became apparent that the images many of our readers looked forward to seeing most were the computer rendered 3D pictures of the new models we were announcing. These appealing images certainly help us all to get an idea of what the new model will look like and as many of these projects are being announced much earlier that would usually be the case, they are also used in our catalogues and on the website to illustrate future models. These beautiful images are also a product of the CAD modelling software available to the Airfix design team, but still require some of their creative skills before they look anything like good enough for us to use ? it is most definitely not a case of pressing a button and letting the computer do the rest. Their artistic prowess is definitely appreciated, as the computer rendered 3D images look fantastic on both our Workbench blog and when incorporated in the latest edition of the Airfix catalogue. They help us all to see what the finished model may look like when it is eventually released and keeps us all informed on the exciting development work that is going on at Airfix. Even though it is still relatively early in the 1/48th scale P-51D Mustang project, we hope you enjoy this selection of rendered 3D images of what will surely become one of the most popular kits in the range.

ImageLThe appealing computer rendered 3D images really bring the new Mustang to life.

The new 1/48th Scale North American P-51D Mustang (A05131) will feature the impressive levels of detail associated with this slightly larger scale and will also incorporate a number of different build options for the modeller to consider. As you would expect, the model will be able to be finished in either flight, or static configuration, with the latter providing the modeller with a number of alternative options, such as canopy position, flaps and undercarriage door positioning. The kit will also allow the modeller to build different versions of the ‘D’ model Mustang, from the first machines introduced into service, to the later aircraft which featured a number of improvements - this will very much appeal to fans of this magnificent aeroplane. There will also be a number of weapon and under-wing drop tank options available, which will allow the modeller to produce a great many of the attractive Mustang schemes we will all be familiar with.

ImageRThe beautiful new Mustang will be a popular subject for the modeller.

This exciting new 1/48th scale P-51D Mustang is due for release in August 2017 and we look forward to bringing you regular updates over the coming weeks.
