Model Airplanes – This P-51 Mustang Aluminum Model Aircraft is a replica of the Mustang fighter plane manufactured by North American Aviation. The legendary Mustang is the fastest propeller driven aircraft and flew in WW II and the Korean conflict. More than 15,000 P-51 Mustang aircraft were manufactured.
Nancy’s Notes: This large reproduction of the P-51 Mustang airplane, with over a 29 inch wingspan, will not disappoint the most discerning collector. The expression to see it is to appreciate it is so true with this replica of the mighty P-51 aircraft model. Adjectives like stunning and gorgeous just do not do justice to this replica. The craftsmanship is top-notch, and the detail work is most impressive. This model truly makes a very special gift.
Our replica P-51 Mustang model is carefully constructed with a lightweight frame which is then enclosed with flat sheet metal. An interesting facet of the metal sheet is that is looks like individual rivets are used to connect the metal, like a real aircraft. The Mustang also has functioning ailerons, and tail rudder. Depending upon how you wish this model displayed, the main landing gear may be extended or retracted.
It is the P-51 Mustang cockpit that really makes this model such a great museum quality collectible piece. The slide-back canopy displays a fully detailed cockpit including pilot seat, instrument panel, and controls. This fully assembled model plane also arrives with a metal base with historical plaque attached to the base.
