Notes from our tech department:
This is a plastic 1/72 P-51B Mustang Airplane made by Academy Plastics.
It's for experienced modelers.

The first Allison powered P-51's were good airplanes, yet they lacked high
altitude effectiveness against bomber escorts. That changed when the basic
P-51 airframe was mated with a Rolls-Royce Merlin engine to create the P-51B.
This engine change resulted in a superb aircraft which many argue helped to
change the course of WWII.
