The usual excellent quality that you would expect from a Hasegawa model is in this ST5 P-51D Mustang kit. This box kit contains a rather nice scale model of this fantastic aeroplane. You can build this fine looking kit with little extra effort, thanks to its nice fit, detail, mold and decals. The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang is an American long-range, single-seat fighter and fighter-bomber used during World War II, the Korean War and other conflicts. The Mustang was designed in 1940 by North American Aviation (NAA) in response to a requirement of the British Purchasing Commission. The Purchasing Commission approached North American Aviation to build Curtiss P-40 fighters under license for the Royal Air Force (RAF). 44-72739 Man O War is one of the P-51 Mustang survivors and it is at the Commemorative Air Force (Southern California Wing) in Camarillo, CA.
