North American Aviation designed the P-51 Mustang to fill a Lend-Lease order from the British. With their supercharged Rolls-Royce engines, these aircraft achieved incredible range and speed. Through hard fights and attrition they came to dominate the skies over Europe, escorting bomber groups into the heart of Nazi-occupied territory. They fought in every theatre of WWII and continued in service with dozens of countries for decades thereafter. Kit features a detailed V-12 engine, seated pilot figure, multi-part canopy, and decals for two versions.
