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. More than 15,000 units of all variants were manufactured, and the iconic warbird saw service well beyond 1945 in various national militaries.
Flying with the 363rd Fighter Squadron, James Browning — a Distinguished Flying Cross recipient who died in combat in February of 1945 — flew a P-51D Mustang he nicknamed "Gentleman Jim." The aircraft has since been restored and remains airworthy today!
A Hobby Master reproduction of Browning's warplane, this 1/48 scale, die cast model features his aircraft's signature nose art (including a top hat and cane), engraved panel lines, a rotating propeller, a sliding canopy, a well-equipped interior (including instrument panel and a removable pilot figure), optional-position landing gear, full weapons complement, authentic 1944 markings, and a display stand. Measures approximately 8" long with a 9¼" wingspan.
