Tony Ray’s Aero Models P-51D Mustang
Balsa Laser Cut Kit for Radio Control
This kit is an R/C model of the P-51D Mustang which was an American long-range, single-seat fighter and fighter-bomber used during World War II and the Korean War, among other conflicts. From mid-1944, P-51Ds were used by the USAAF’s Eighth Air Force to escort bombers in raids over Germany, while the RAF’s Second Tactical Air Force and the USAAF’s Ninth Air Force used the Merlin-powered Mustangs as fighter-bombers, roles in which the Mustang helped ensure Allied air superiority in 1944. During World War II, Mustang pilots claimed to have destroyed 4,950 enemy aircraft. The kit comes with all the parts and components displayed in the gallery photo.
The model can also be converted to rubber powered free flight for those with appropriate model building skills.
Finally, the kit can be built as a great looking static display model.
