Corgi US32213 USAAF North American P-51K Mustang Fighter - Lt Colonel Bill "Dinghy" Dunham, "Mrs Bonnie", 348th Fighter Group, Le Shima, August 1945 (1:72 Scale) "Okay, let's go."
- Supreme Allied Commander Dwight D. Eisenhower on the eve of D-Day, June 5th, 1944

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.

This particular 1:72 scale aircraft, nicknamed "Mrs. Bonnie," was flown by Lt. Colonel Bill Dunham of the 348th Fighter Group based at Le Shima, Japan in August 1945. Also comes with a separate enlarged panel depicting the aircraft's nose art. Sold Out!

Wingspan: 6.75 inches
