The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang was a long-range single-seat World War II fighter aircraft. Designed and built in just 117 days,the Mustang first flew in Royal Air Force (RAF) service as a fighter-bomber and reconnaissance aircraft before conversion to a bomber escort, employed in raids over Germany, helping ensure Allied air superiority from early 1944. The P-51 was in service with Allied air forces in Europe and also saw limited service against the Japanese in the Pacific War. The Mustang began the Korean War as the United Nations' main fighter, but was relegated to a ground attack role when superseded by jet fighters early in the conflict.
This full-composite kit is absolutely breathtaking, not only due to the excessive use of space-age materials but due the the fact that this kit is absolutely organic and authentic and appearance. All the rivets, all the panel lines and smallest details are to be found here but on top of that it is not “sterile”, but authentic in appearance. Just like something you would find in service, not on a drawing board.The light-weight and performance are incredible and the scale cast retract system tops this package off nicely.
