P-51 Mustang

SKU: AP459

After attending the Reno Air Races in September again, I was thrilled when this fabulous new model arrived at our door. Great, big, all polished bare-metal model of America’s pride and joy. The aircraft that probably turned the war in Europe. Designed in 1940 by Edgar Schmued, and built 102 days later by North American Aviation! More than 15,000 were built, and during WWII Mustang pilots claimed to have destroyed 4,950 enemy aircraft! The unit cost in 1945—you’ll laugh—was $50,985. Originally powered by an Allison V-12, liquid cooled engine, with RH rotation, and when it didn’t have enough oomph, the Rolls Royce Merlins were installed. She was armed with six .50 cal. M2/AN Browning machine guns. She had a wingspan of 37’, length 32’ 3”, with a constant-speed, variable- pitch Hamilton Standard prop with a 11’ 2”Ø. This fantastic, large all-metal model, has retractable landing gear, opening canopy, with a full cockpit, and turning propeller. Comes with a stand, or drop the gear. 29.5” wingspan, 25.75” length, 3.5 lbs
