This streamlined single engine fighter replica is made from polished aluminum
This aerodynamic aviation model provides a nostalgic look back at one of the greatest fighter planes of World War II. Designed by North American Aviation and powered by a Rolls Royce Merlin engine, the Mustang was fast, agile and a good climber. However, it's real advantage was its unmatched range. Two 75 gallon fuel tanks under the wings allowed it to fly missions of up to 6 hours, which was unheard of at the time. This faithful reproduction pays close attention to the details adopted in later models of the Mustang: carburetor air intake is located below the nose; four-bladed propeller; bulbous Malcom hood; six wing-mounted 50 caliber Browning machine guns. The intricate cockpit has a sliding cover and the main wheels are retractable, so this polished aluminum airplane model does more than just look pretty on your desk.
