When the P-51 fighters upgraded to the Merlin engine, aviation history was changed forever. There was no other fighter in the skies over Europe that could compete with the Mustang’s speed, manueuverability or flight distance. It was the perfect combination to escort and protect the heavy bombers as they pounded Nazi Germany into submission.
Today, the small but mighty P-51 Mustang is the most sought after fighter of WWII and restorations of this popular airplane are occurring all over the world.
Models are hand made in America using “rescued” woods from many sources that might otherwise be burned or buried.
