Details

The North American 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 famed 332nd Fighter group, known as the Tuskegee Airmen, were America's first all "Black" Fighter squadrons.
Finally recognized sixty years after the fact for their contributions in WW2, the four Red Tail Fighter squadrons have been immortalized
in more than one big budget Movie, and the Red Tails are now rightfully recognized as heroes of WW2.

This paper model builds the P-51B/C aircraft "Miss Pelt" as flown by Lt. Clarence "Lucky" Lester.  Considered one of the most outstanding Combat Pilots, Lester is a permanent feature at the Air and Space Museum in Washington DC. Lester completed 90 combat missions and is particularly noted for shooting down three enemy aircraft in less than five minutes on one of those missions.
