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, including usage during the Korean War.

Assembly required. Skill level 3. Measures approximately 8" long with a 9¼" wingspan.
