Tech Notes
    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.

FEATURES: Detailed 1/72 kit for static display only. 65 parts in green and clear with fine recessed panel lines. Accurately captures features of P-51B: razorback fuselage, wing, and canopy. Cockpit includes seat, floor, radio rack, instrument panel with raised detail. Separate exhaust stacks - 2 styles included. 108 gal paper drop tank and rocket tubes included. Standard and Malcolm Hood canopies - both can be posed open or closed. Detailed landing gear and wheel wells.
