Details

Issue Number Two of the "Rare & Unusual paint Schemes -P51 Mustang" is the this captured P-51B (serial unknown), redesignated Kennueng T9 + HK.

In 1943, Hauptman "Ted" Rosarius was tasked with forming a Versuchsstaffel of captured enemy aircraft that would serve to familiarise pilots of the Reichsverteidigung (German Air Defense) with the strengths and weaknesses of Allied Fighter aircraft. This unit, the 2nd Staffel of the Versuchtverband Oberkommando der Luftwaffe (Trials and Research Unit of the Luftwaffe High Command) received all of the captured aircraft. Once those had been thoroughly flown and tested, they were flown to different frontline units. This unusual formation became known as the Wanderzirkus Rosarius (Rosarius' Travelling Circus).

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 The Mustang began the Korean War as the United Nations' main fighter, but was relegated to a ground attack role when superseded by jet fighters early in the conflict.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