Many people consider the P-51 Mustang the best fighter of World War II. Its combination of speed, range, maneuverability and firepower gave it great versatility. Its use in all major theaters or the war included long-range high-altitude escort, strafing and photo reconnaissance. Originally developed by North American for the British, the Mustang was later ordered in large quantities by the US Army Air Forces.

North American P-51D Mustang

Designed to meet an RAF requirement for fighter-bomber and reconnaissance aircraft, the P-51 Mustang was first flown on October 26th, 1940. This versatile aircraft was capable of escorting bombers on long-range missions, engaging in dogfights, and dropping down to destroy German targets on the ground. At least eight versions of the P-51 were produced, but it was the definitive P-51D that gave the Mustang its classic warbird appearance. Britain and the US both tested the airframe with the Rolls-Royce Merlin engine, which gave the aircraft tremendous performance gains. The Truman Senate War Investigating Committee called the Mustang "the most aerodynamically perfect pursuit plane in existence."

Witty's 1:72 scale P-51 is a beautiful addition to any WWII fighter aircraft collection. The fuselage is constructed almost entirely of diecast metal, and the solid metal wing has subtle panel line details. Fine details also include a correctly-rendered diecast metal exhaust stack, structural detail of the wing that can be seen inside the wheel wells and exceptionally crisp pad-printed placards and unit markings. Included in this series are variants with a variety of wing-mount drop tanks and accurately modeled radiator scoops. Each release also has a display stand bearing details such as the aircraft's name, operator or type.
