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 throught 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, 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 enemy territory.  Due to the unquestionable performance of the P-51D Mustang, it was developed into a reconnaissance plane.  Designated the F-6D, the tactical reconnaissance version of the Mustang, had cameras fitted in the fuselage just aft of the cockpit.  A total of 163 P-51D/Ks were converted to F-6D/K photo-reconnaissance aircraft.  Unlike many other reconnaissance aircraft the Mustangs retained their wing mounted guns, making them formidable "spies".

 

This kit builds Major William Shomo's 5th aircraft, given the title "Snooks 5th".  As part of the 82nd Tactical Recon Squad (Philippines), "Bill" received the Medal of Honor for his actions flying this very aircraft. During a reconnaissance mission, Shomo and his wingman came across an escorted bomber sortie, and Capt. Shomo was personally responsible for downing seven aircraft, including two of the bombers.
