The P-51D, the definitive and most widely produced variant of the Mustang, comes to life through this hand-carved mahogany plane model.
Imagine hearing the hoarse roar of a Packard Merlin engine as it strafes the field and rips the sky in high-speed. That’s the P-51D, the definitive and most widely produced variant of the Mustang. What makes it different is the improvement of the pilot view. The British modified some Mustangs with fishbowl shaped canopies called “Malcom Hood.” This was recognized by the British after the Battle of Britain proved the value of an all-around view.
The Americans adopted several NA-106 prototypes with a bubble canopy, cutting away the decking behind the cockpit to allow looking directly to the rear. This led to the production P-51D (NA-109), considered the definitive Mustang.
It was in service with Allied air forces in the middle of World War II when the P-51 became one of the most successful and recognizable aircrafts. Serving as range escort fighter and bomber, and reconnaissance aircraft, the Mustang saw action in China, Burma, India, the Philippines and Iwo Jima.
Later re-designated as F-51s, the Mustangs were finally phased out in 1957.
