The P-51 'Mustang' was an American plane used in World War II and the Korean War. It was a long-range, single-seat fighter and fighter-bomber. It was designed in 1940 by North American Aviation (NAA) in response to a requirement of the British Purchasing Commission. A prototype was rolled out and first flew in late 1940. It was flown operationally by the Royal Air Force as a tactical reconnaissance aircraft and fighter-bomber. When a Rolls-Royce Merlin engine was added, the altitude tolerance was enhanced enough for it to compete with the Luftwaffe's fighters. The later version, the P-51D, was one of the best fighters of its age, armed with six .50 calibre (12.7 mm) M2/AN Browning machine guns and having a top speed of 700 kph and a maximum flight level of 12,800 meters. About 16,000 were manufactured by the end of the war.
The set includes a model of the plane, a figure of a pilot and block stand. The plane has a rotating propeller, retractable landing gear, movable flaps and pilot’s cockpit which can be easily be opened to put a figure inside.
