| Description

The North American P-5 l Mustang is viewed as one of the most iconic American fighters of the Second World War. Designed to an RAF specificatopn the Mustang was transformed once the Rolls Royce Merlin engine was installed. Its long range and excellent firepower made it a superb escort fighter, able to protect the bombers all the way to Berlin and back. After the war the P-51 saw service in Korea and was used by some air aims up untiol the early 1980s.

As one of the most capable fighter aircraft of WWII, the North American Mustang allowed Allied pilots to take a heavy toll of Luftwaffe aircraft, both in the air and on the ground.  With many units painting their aircraft in highly visible schemes, they hoped to lure Luftwaffe fighters into combat, whilst also aiding recognition of friendly aircraft in the melee of a dogfight.

 

Always a favourite with the modeller, this latest Mustang marks an aircraft flying with the 352nd Fighter Group, the famed ‘Blue Nosers’ of Bodney.

Amazing!

I am just a starter but I think this is an amazing kit. It is easy to put together and looks great finished. I strongly would recommend it. I hope it comes back in stock because it really is a good one. Great kit.

Excellent Little Kit

This is a great model, though you do need to watch out for tight tolerances on the wing fit (I cheated by fitting the lower wing first and cutting off the undercarriage bay interiors. Nicely rendered panel lines and well thought out cockpit canopy fitting. Another advantage is that the F-51 was still in service into the 1980s in Latin America and the Caribbean allowing some very interesting colour schemes. Definitely recommended.

P51d Mustang Starter Kit

What a fabulous kit, Airfix's new tooled kits are superb. Cockpit is detailed, panel lines are excellent, quality is very good indeed! A few small problems though, one of the landing gear struts is bent on the mold, the control stick & aerial are almost impossible to remove. One minor (and last) point is the prop & spinner have to be mounted when the fuselage is joined... if you want free movement this can make it one of those easy to break items, adding it last would be nice please Airfix! I've built two of these recently and I love them! 4/5
