Among the most celebrated pilots in history, Chuck Yeager is most renowned for being the first person to break the sound barrier in level flight, an accomplishment he attained in 1947. During the Second World War, however, Yeager was also an ace aviator, flying a P-51 Mustang in the European Theater where he tallied 11½ victories. Most of these kills came while piloting his P-51D named "Glamorous Glen III," an homage to his future wife Glennis.
Replicating Yeager's warbird as it appeared in November of 1944, this 1/48 scale, Hobby Master, die cast model features signature colorful artwork, engraved panel lines, a rotating propeller, full weapons complement (including Browning machine guns), an opening canopy, a well-equipped cockpit, a removable pilot figure, optional-position landing gear, authentic markings, and a mid-flight display stand.
