This is the Top Flite P-51D Mustang Giant Scale Kit. The Top Flite P51D Mustang lets you rule the skies in impressive fashion with this 1/5 scale majestic warbird.
Ever since it gained fame during World War II, the P-51D Mustang has enjoyed a reputation as America's favorite fighter. Now you can pilot a stunning 1/5 scale replica of this impressive bird that'll have you feeling like you're right in the cockpit. With its 84.5" wingspan and incredible attention to detail, Top Flite's new Giant Scale P-51D Mustang is a worthy entrant at IMAA events. But as realistic as it looks, it builds surprisingly easy, using familiar wood kit-building techniques, tools and materials that take much of the fear out of tackling a large-scale project. Its awesome dimensions make it easy to track in the sky, where you'll also marvel at how true-to-scale the plane performs. Ready to experience a new level of warbird realism? Top Flite's new Giant Scale P-51D Mustang is ready to take you there!
Many precision-formed scale appointments, such as the radiator scoop, cowl bottom, and gun and exhaust ports add to the P-51's accurate detailing. This kit will perform admirably with either a glow-powered or gasoline-powered engine. Cleanly die-cut wood parts minimize sanding and carving, and tab-lock framing of the fuselage virtually eliminates any chance of alignment error. You'll be the center of attention at the field with this vintage warrior! The kit's instruction manual shows how to install these flaps and retracts for added realism (gear not included).
