Description Extended Information
 
Oxford AC021 USAAF North American P-51D Mustang Fighter - Maj. Louis "Red Dog" Norley, "Red Dog XII," 4th Fighter Group, RAF Debden, England, 1945 (1:72 Scale) "The day I saw Mustangs over Berlin, I knew the jig was up."
- Reichmarschall Hermann Goering, Head of the German Luftwaffe

No other aircraft of WWII could fly as high, go as far, or fight as hard as the famed Mustang. Piloted by a record 281 Aces, this agile and ferocious dogfighter tallied more kills than any other Allied airplane. As the bombers of the Eighth Air Force fought their way deep into Hitler's Germany, it was the Mustang that cleared the skies of Luftwaffe fighters. The powerful Rolls-Royce Merlin engine gave the Mustang a speed of 445 mph. Re-styled with an aerodynamic bubble canopy for greater visibility, and outfitted with 6 fast-firing .50 caliber machine guns, the P-51 became the best fighter of the war.

Pictured here is a 1:72 scale replica of a USAAF North American P-51D Mustang fighter. Sold Out!

Historical Account: "Aces High" - Based in Debden, Essex, the 4th Fighter Group was the highest scoring fighter group in the USAAF, destroying 1,016 enemy aircraft on the ground in and in the skies over Europe. The group flew Spitfires, Thunderbolts and Mustangs while serving with the 2nd Air Division's 65th Fighter Wing - part of the "Mighty 8th Air Force." Originally comprised of the three American RAF Eagle Squadrons, the 4th was the first fighter group activated in a theater of war, the first to escort bombers over Berlin and led the first England to Russia shuttle mission.
