MDF 21 – The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang

Part 1 Allison Powered

By Malcolm V Lowe

The North American P-51 Mustang is one of the most well-known fighters of World War II. Possessing excellent range and maneuverability, the P-51 operated primarily as a long-range escort fighter and later as a ground attack fighter-bomber and went on to serve in nearly every combat zone during WWII, and later fought in the Korean War. The Mustang was originally designed to use the Allison V-170 engine, which had limited high-altitude performance and was first flown operationally as the Mustang Mk I by the RAF in the role of a tactical-reconnaissance aircraft and fighter-bomber. The later addition of the Rolls-Royce Merlin to the P-51B/C model transformed the Mustang's performance at altitudes above 15,000 ft, giving it an ability that matched or bettered the majority of the Luftwaffe’s fighters at altitude. The definitive version, the P-51D was powered by the Packard V-1650-7 a license-built version of the Merlin 60 Series, with a two-stage, two-speed supercharged engine and was armed with six .50 calibre M2 Browning machine guns.
In the first of two volumes on the P-51, acknowledged author Malcolm V Lowe looks at the genesis of the P-51 and the Allison engined versions, detailing the NA.73X Prototype, the A-36 Apache/A-36 Invader, and the early P-51’s in US and RAF Service. This is all backed up with Colour Artwork by Andy Evans, fold-out Scale Plans, Understanding the Subject, Technical Diagrams and Specifications, Airframe Walk Arounds, Modelling the Mustang in Popular Scales and a comprehensive Kitography, listing all available kits, decals and accessories
