Details

Issue Number One of the "Rare & Unusual paint Schemes -P51 Mustang" is this P-51C "Evalina as flown by 1st Lt. Oliver "Bud" Strawbridge.

The P-51C-11-NT "Evalina", marked as "278" (former USAF Serial : 44-10816) and flown by 26th FS, 51st FG, was hit by gunfire on 16 January 1945 and belly landed on Suchin Airfield in China, which was held by the Japanese. The Japanese repaired the aircraft, roughly applying Hinomaru roundels and flew the aircraft to the Fussa evaluation center (now Yokota Air Base) in Japan.

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 The Mustang began the Korean War as the United Nations' main fighter, but was relegated to a ground attack role when superseded by jet fighters early in the conflict.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