This is a 1/48 Scale P-51D Mustang Plastic Model Kit from Hasegawa.
The P-51D, which was the premiere US fighter aircraft of WWII, was originally
developed in the remarkable time of 117 days in response to a request from
the British Purchasing Commission. The first Mustangs were powered by Allison
engines and had limited high altitude performance. But when the Allison was
replaced with the Rolls-Royce Merlin the P-51 evolved into a superb long-range
bomber escort. The definitive D-model is identified by its bubble canopy.
P-51Ds remained in US service until the early 1950s.
