From late 1943, P51Bs and P51-Cs were used by the USAAF’s Eighth Air Force to escort bombers in raids over Germany whilst the RAF’s Second Tactical Air Force and the USAAF’s Ninth Air Force used the Merlin powered Mustangs as fighter-bombers, roles in which helped ensure Allied air superiority in 1944. During world war 2 Mustang pilots claimed to have destroyed 4,950 enemy aircraft! This is a GS full kit that includes all the balsa and ply needed to complete the build.
