Recognized as “the most aerodynamically perfect pursuit plane in existence” by the Truman Senate War, the P-51 Mustang was created to meet the specification issued by the British Purchasing Commission to North American Aviation. This war bird was powered by a two-stage, two-speed supercharged engine and outfitted with six .50-caliber M2 Browning machine guns and 10 “zero rail” rockets under wings, making the P51 D the definitive version of the Mustang aircraft. It first flew on May 20, 1941, and by mid-1944, the P-51Ds were mainly used by the USAAF’s Eight Air Force in escorting bombers in their raids over Germany. Because of the great demands in Europe, the Mustang P 51 Model D became a latecomer in the Pacific Theater. It was also purchased to be of service to the defense force of many nations including Canada, Germany, Italy, UK, Netherlands, Sweden, and a lot more. The P-51D Mustang was a legendary aircraft that deserves recognition. Crafted by expert model makers, this wood model aircraft will surely excite the history enthusiast in you.
