Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The North American P-51 Mustang had a humble genesis as a British request for single engine escort fighter. The projects in the book take the modeller from the aircraft's beginnings to the ultimate manifestation of this elegant and deadly bird, the F-82 G/H Twin Mustang. The North American P-51 Mustang had a humble genesis as a British request for single engine escort fighter. "Dutch" Kindelberger's North American design team created, in just six months, a prototype that would become, arguably, World War II's most important fighter aircraft. The aircraft was designed around the innovative laminar flow wing, which resulted in a much more efficient flow of air across the top of the wing, thereby reducing drag and increasing range. Modelling is the perfect format to appreciate this revolutionary design feature which created a highly maneuverable plane with excellent range.

This book pays attention to the crucial details and methods needed to model the Mustang, at differing skill levels and with unique finishing tips and styles - showing the benefits of scratch built components, all illustrated in a clear concise and easy to use manner.
