This P-51 Mustang Model Airplane is a scale model of the original North American P-51D Mustang piloted by Tuskegee Airman, Charles McGee. The P-51D Mustang Model Airplane is crafted from wood and is an impressive aviation gift. Our P-51D Mustang model aircraft arrives fully assembled and includes a display stand.
The Tuskegee Airmen was the popular name of a group of African American pilots who flew with distinction during World War II. The Tuskegee Airmen were initially equipped with P-40 Warhawks, briefly with P-39 Airacobras, later with P-47 Thunderbolts and finally with the P-51 Mustang. The P-51 Mustang airplane is the one in which they became most well known.
This authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft has been faithfully reproduced with kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. Each model is meticulously carved, hand sanded and painted following exact blueprint details of the original aircraft. The result is a handsome, wood airplane sculpture to be admired and enjoyed.
