North American P-51 Mustang / Forces of Valor / 1:72 Scale:
$45

The P-51 Mustang is arguably the best fighter of World War ll. Originally created as the P-51B, it was fitted with an Allison engine. This model with the Allison engine suffered at high altitude. A new model was developed as the P-51B, C and D and fitted with the British Rolls Royce Merlin engine. This solved the problem and gave the Mustang the high performance that was required. Fitted with drop tanks for additional fuel, this enabled the Mustang to escort bombers all the way to Berlin and back. The Mustang remains one of the most popular aircraft on the air show circuit today, with numerous restored models around the world.
This Forces of Valor reproduction (serial number 413321) of this famous aircraft is an extremely detailed, rare, out of production and difficult to find model. It was eventually flown by Major George E. Preddy Jr. of the 328th Fighter Squadron, 352nd Fighter Group, Eighth Air Force in June of 1944 and flew out of Bodney, England. Today, this aircraft is still flown as "'Cripes a Mighty" at air shows around the country. This model is new and taken out of the box only for photographing purposes to better show the excellent quality and detail. The box has minimal shelf wear and a slight tear on the side as shown in the photographs. All sales are final. Shipping to the continental USA only.
NOTE: This is the only one available.
