Details

The North American P-51 Mustang is one of the classic aircraft of all time. This paper model builds an early mark of P-51 flown in Europe during World War II by a U.S. Army Air Ace!


Powered by an American Packard-built Rolls-Royce Merlin engine, the P-51 proved to be outstandingly fast and maneuverable, with long range extended by the use of drop tanks. The aircraft also excelled as a fighter-bomber. Escorting B-17s and B-24s on raids deep into the German heartland, the P-51 proved it could best everything the Luftwaffe threw against it, even scoring victories against the speedy new Me-262 jet. It was equally effective in the Pacific, was one of the most feared Allied fighters where ever it was encountered, and was flown operationally by pilots from at least eight Allied countries. Post war, it served into the 1960s with some 55 air forces worldwide.

 

This paper model depicts Shellelagh, the P-51 flown by Capt. Kenneth Dahlberg of the 353rd Fighter Squadron based in England, and wearing D-day invasion stripes. Capt. Dahlberg was credited with 14.5 aerial victories, won the Distinguished Service Cross, and was shot down three times, with the third downing resulting in his capture and incarceration as a POW for the last three months of the war. Post-war, Mr. Dahlberg had a distinguished business career, and served in the Minnesota Air Guard until 1951. Today, he lives in retirement in Arizona and still flies his own plane.


Paper Model Details: 130 parts, two construction diagrams, one wire template. Fuselage formers; wing spars with airfoil formers. Rolled landing gear legs, layered wheels, optional wheel well detail, opaque canopy with shadowed interior detail. Optional bomb carrier pylons. Detailed graphic textures with realistic weathering and surface features. Degree of Difficulty: 3/5. If you enjoy building this paper model, please contribute a review!
