The classic WW2 Mustang!
Early versions were power by an Alison engine, but by the time of the `D` version, production had switched to include the Rolls-Royce Merlin super-charged engine. First entering service with the RAF on 10th May, 1942, the P-51a was used for ground attack and channel patrols.
In June of 1942 the USAAF finally adopted the P51a as well. Going through many adaptations in it`s life, the P-51 was rebuilt as a dive-bomber (the A-36 Apache/Invader) in the USAAC, receiving quad 20mm cannon (in place of it`s Browning mg`s) with the RAF, various canopy types till the "tear-drop" design was finally accepted, and saw use by almost all Air forces of the allies during WW2. After WW2, the P-51 continued service through Korea, and with some air forces straight through till the 1980s.
This 3D version is the P-51D variant of the aircraft, which served as a long ranger fighter/bomber escort from mid1944 onwards.
Includes a pair of conforming and fully poseable external "drop-tank" fuel tanks and a conforming blur blade figure.
This is the Poser Version
