P-51 Mustang Airplane Military Toy

Motorworks P-51 Mustang Airplane 1:32 Scale

The P-51 Mustang by Toy Zone The P-51 was designed as the NA-73 in 1940 at Britain's request. The design showed promise and AAF purchases of Allison-powered Mustangs began in 1941 primarily for photo recon and ground support use due to its limited high-altitude performance.

But in 1942, tests of P-51s using the British Rolls-Royce "Merlin" engine revealed much improved speed and service ceiling, and in Dec. 1943, Merlin-powered P-51Bs first entered combat over Europe. Providing high-altitude escort to B-17s and B-24s, they scored heavily over German interceptors and by war's end, P-51s had destroyed 4,950 enemy aircraft in the air, more than any other fighter in Europe. This is a 12" long, 15" wing span, highly detailed die cast replicas of P-51 Mustang military aircraft by Toy Zone (Motorworks). This model features realistic detailed graphics and make a fine addition to your collection. Scale 1:32 - complete with stand.
