Airfix A02047 North American F-51D Mustang 1/72

Airfix Model Kit




The North American P51 Mustang is viewed as one of the iconic American fighters
of the Second World War. Designed to an RAF specification, the Mustang was
transformed once the Rolls Royce Merlin engine was installed. Its long range and
excellent firepower made it a superb escort fighter, able to protect the bombers all
the way to Berlin and back. In 1948, the type designation for the Mustang changed
to F51 and following this, saw service as a ground attack aircraft over North Korea,
and continued to be used by some air arms up until the early 1980s.
