The P-51B Mustang was the first Mustang to match North American’s sleek airframe with the awesome power of a Rolls-Royce Merlin engine. It was this Mustang that gave the Allies their first truly capable bomber escort and Luftwaffe pilots their first taste of things to come. The E-flite Platinum Series P-51B Mustang 32e ARF expertly captures the look and feel of this landmark WWII fighter with a scale outline so faithful to form as to be practically indistinguishable from the real thing. Every detail has been pushed to the limits of model size and engineering with features like concealed pocket hinges, airfoil-shaped tail surfaces and a painted fiberglass cowl that blends seamlessly into fuselage. You can push the scale realism even further with options like electric main retracts and mechanical retractable tail wheel, a static 4-bladed prop and functional bomb/drop tank wing mounts. The model has been designed to accept all of these options with minimal modification. And when you’re done, you will have a competition-level scale Mustang that will make every flight unforgettable.
