Details

The North American P-51 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. The first Merlin powered Mustangs (B and C models) appeared in 1943.

 

This paper model builds the P-51B aircraft "Little Ambassador" of the 5th FS, 52nd FG, 15th Air Force. As flown by Lt. James W. Empey, June 1944 in Italy.  This aircraft was later flown by 2nd Lt. Robert "Rocky" Rhodes and forced down by enemy fire. Empey scored five aerial victories in just 30 days flying Little Ambassador,  earning him the title of Fighter Ace. Lt. Empey flew missions in both Spitfires and Mustangs during WW2, and went on to fly another 700 combat hours over Vietnam in F-100 Super Sabres.
