Operating as a bomber, fighter, and escort aircraft, the multi-role P-51 Mustang helped the Allies achieve air superiority over the Luftwaffe in the final years of World War II — it was, in fact, the second most successful Allied fighter of the war with 4,950 enemy aircraft shot down, behind only the F6F Hellcat. The "D" variant was the most numerous, accounting for over half all Mustangs built. More than 15,000 units of all variants were manufactured, and the iconic warbird saw service well beyond 1945 in various national militaries.
This 1/48 scale, Hobby Master, die cast model — a replica of a P-51D flown by the PLAAF in 1949 — features engraved panel lines, a rotating propeller, a sliding canopy, a removable pilot figure, wing-mounted bombs, removable drop tanks, optional-position landing gear, and a stylish presentation stand.
