Details

The North American P-51D Mustang may be one of the most recognized and successful fighter aircraft of all time of all time.  Serving throughout WW2 in the European and Pacific theaters, it is still flown today in various evolved configurations.  Powered by an American Packard-built Rolls-Royce Merlin engine, the P-51 proved to be outstandingly fast and maneuverable. Excelling as a fighter-bomber, the Mustang also escorted B-17s and B-24s on raids deep into enemy territory, the aircraft's long range extended by the use of drop tanks. After 1948, the P (Pursuit) designation on USAF aircraft was changed to F (for Fighter), thus the Mustang became the F-51.


This paper model kit builds the #334 Mustang of the South African Air Force No. 2 Squadron.  No. 2 Squadron- known as The Flying Cheetahs- were based at Pyongyang in Korea during 1952.  These reassigned USAF Mustangs operated as fighter-bombers in support of UN troops during the Korean War, until replaced in 1953 by F-86E Sabres.
