The Definitive Kit of the Definitive Musang
The P-51D Mustang is considered by many to be the best fighter aircraft of WWII. It incorporated advanced features such as a laminar flow wing and an efficient radiator design. Powered by the Packard-built Rolls-Royce Merlin V-1650 engine, it demonstrated superior performance and is widely considered to be the definitive variant of the Mustang. They were used to escort bombers such as B-17s and B-24s all the way to Germany and helped the Allies gain air superiority over Europe. Tamiya has reproduced this famous aircraft with utmost accuracy for addition to the 1/32 Scale Aircraft Series. The unmistakable form of the P-51D is accurately reproduced based on actual design drawings of the aircraft as well as thorough study of actual examples. Line it up with Tamiya's 1/32 scale Supermarine Spitfires and A6M Zeroes for a display of iconic WWII fighters.
