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. After 1948, the P (Pursuit) designation on USAF aircraft was changed to F (for Fighter)...the Mustang became an F-51. 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.

 

This kit builds Mustang TF Mk.IV Code BA-U (9567) of the 424 Auxiliary "The City of Hamilton" Squadron. This ex-USAF aircraft was delivered to the RCAF in the late 40s through to the late 50s with the 417 Squadron Manitoba and the 424 Squadron Hamilton assigned to Tactical Command. The aircraft was later sold to private owners and flown by one as a Racer in the late 1960s. The plane was eventually acquired by the Canadian Warplane Heritage in 1982 and flown again as RCAF 9567...but it crashed in 1982 and was effectively lost to fire.
