Details

Issue Number Three of the "Rare & Unusual paint Schemes -P51 Mustang" is the this P-51A variant Reconnaissance aircraft.

More commonly referred to as the "dazzle" paint scheme, this type of camouflage was experimented with widely during the Second World War mostly on Ships and Sea going vessels. It was incorporated on a number of aircraft as well, although details are few and vague. This reconnaissance P51 Mustang appears to be a "one off" design that may have seen active service in WW2. Using an early "transitional trainer" version of the P51-A this aircraft features 20mm Cannons in place of the standard Machine Guns.

The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang was a long-range single-seat World War II fighter aircraft. Designed, built and airborne in just 117 days, the Mustang first flew in RAF service as a fighter-bomber and reconnaissance aircraft before conversion to a bomber escort, employed in raids over Germany, helping ensure Allied air superiority from early 1944.The P-51 was in service with Allied air forces in Europe and also saw limited service against the Japanese in the Pacific War. The Mustang began the Korean War as the United Nations' main fighter, but was relegated to a ground attack role when superseded by jet fighters early in the conflict. Nevertheless, it remained in service with some air forces until the early 1980s.

Based on Marek's 1/50 scale P-51 B and C model, this aircraft has been redesigned as an earlier "A" variant with a reduced front cowling, upper air intake and three bladed propeller, upscaled to 1/33 and completely repainted with this historic livery. The kit also features other upgrades like photorealistic elements and simulated landing gear wells and 20mm Cannon attachments.
