Gemini Aces North American P51B Mustang Lt. Francis W Horne 1:72 Scale RARE:

The P-51 was arguably the greatest fighter of World War ll. It was developed in a record 102 days, with the first prototype, XP-73, with an Allison V-1710 inline engine, first flew on October 26, 1940. In December of that year it was officially named Mustang by the British. The first flight of a production Mustang took place on April 23, 1941. The Mustang initially had a lack of power at high altitudes. In view of this, the Mustang was soon mated with a two-staged supercharged, Packard built Rolls-Royce Merlin V1610 inline engine. This gave the Mustang superb high altitude capabilities up to 41,800 feet. The P-51B&C models first flew in mid-1943 and entered service over Europe in August of 1943. Numerous P-51 Mustangs of all variants still exist today and are favorites at air shows all over the world.
This particular aircraft was nicknamed \"Snoots Sniper\". It was flown by Lieutenant Francis. W. Horne, who was credited with 5.5 victories during World War Two. It flew with the 328th Fighter Squadron, 352nd Fighter Group out of Bodney, Norfolk England in 1944.
