Details

Issue Number Four of the "Rare & Unusual paint Schemes - P51 Mustang" is the this P-51B recovered by the Swiss Air Force.

Serial No. 42-106438, #900 P-51B-10-NA Mustang from the 4th Fighter Group 335th Fighter Squadron landed intact in Switzerland and subsequently was tested by the Swiss Air Force and Swiss Aircraft Industry. It was the first Mustang to be adorned with Swiss markings. Pleased with the Mustang's performance and abilities, the Swiss later purchased over 100 surplus P-51D Mustangs.

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 The Mustang began the Korean War as the United Nations' main fighter, but was relegated to a ground attack role when superseded by jet fighters early in the conflict.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 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.
