P-51B USAAF 328FS 1 by WS-Clave P-51B USAAF 328FS 1 by WS-Clave
The North American P-51 Mustang was designed for the RAF early in WW2. It entered combat service in 1942.

Fitting Mustangs with the Rolls Royce Merlin engine made a good fighter into a great one, and with the addition of drop-tanks the allies had the long-range escort fighter they needed so badly.

The Mustang 'B' was armed with 4 x 12.7mm machine guns, and could also carry drop-tanks or bombs.

This example is a P-51B of the 328th Fighter Squadron USAAF circa 1944.

P-38 looks like coming sooner rather than later - I have a print commission coming up...

The P-51D gets all the glory but I love the lines of the B - especially with this canopy!

P-51s are nice but they get all the glory. How about a P-38? Or some Peashooters?
