Details

The North American P-51 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 first Merlin-powered Mustangs (B and C models) appeared in 1943.

 

The British RAF was the first Air Force to operate the Mustang and the first Mustangs were built to British requirements. These aircraft were designated by their Factory "Marks" 1 and 2. P-51 B and C models were converted in 1943 to be Mark 3 models, and were used right through to the end of the war (WW2) alongside Mark 4s and 5s (converted P-51Ds and Ks).

 

This paper model builds Mustang Mk III  FB353 of the RAF 316 Fighter squadron. The 316th "City of Warsaw" Squadron was formed in 1941 at RAF Pembrey, and was one of many Polish Squadrons based in England.
