TAMIYA 1/48 P-51B Mustang

Shipping cost will vary by dimensions or weight please call or email for shipping quotes.

The first Allison powered P-51's were good airplanes but lacked the high altitude performance to be effective bomber escorts. That changed when the basic P-51 airframe was mated with a Rolls-Royce Merlin engine to create the P-51B.; Tamiya's rendition of the Mustang builds up into an impressive, highly detailed 1/48th scale replica with accurate interior and exterior detail.  High quality water activated decals are included for three aircraft.
Highly detailed 1/48th scale plastic kit for static display.
Approximately 60 parts in medium grey and clear with fine recessed panel lines.
Accurately captures features of P-51B: wings, gear doors, canopy.
Multi-part canopy may be posed open or closed - Malcom Hood included.
Main wheels have separate hubs for easy painting.
Highly detailed cockpit with accurate instrument panel, seat, control stick and rudder pedals, bulkheads, and sculpted pilot figure.
2 styles of exhaust stubs, optional position flaps, drop tanks

TAMIYA 1/72 Mitsubishi A6M2B (Zeke)

From the early days of the Second Sino-Japanese War to the end of hostilities in the Pacific, the Mitsubishi Zero served as the Imperial Japanese Navy's main frontline fighter. The first major mass-produced version was the A6M2b, which was equipped with 50cm folding wingtips, landing hook, and radio direction finder for carrier-based operations. Flown by expert pilots, the A6M2b took part in daring operations such as the Pearl Harbor attack and the invasion of the Philippines. It's 3,000km range, powerful 20mm cannon armament, and legendary maneuverability quickly earned the respect of Allied aircrews.

The Tamiya model assembly kit faithfully reproduces this historic warplane in 1/72 scale.

REVELL 1/48 SR-71A Blackbird

The Most Spectacular aircraft in the world today is, without doubt, the SR-71® Blackbird®. Holder of the world absolute speed and altitude records, 2,193 miles per hour at 85,069 feet, the SR-71 is the most advanced strategic reconnaissance vehicle ever designed. The Blackbird is a product of the famous “Skunk Work,” Lockheed’s Advanced Development Projects Group. The SR-71 design configuration is a modified, tailless delta with a blended forward wing called a chine. The Chine acts as a fixed canard to produce lift and decrease drag at cruising speed. The wing panels are noteworthy for their corrugated surfaces which not only add strength and stability on the wing, but help dissipate heat as well. The vertical stabilizers are all- moving surfaces which are two and a half times more effective than conventional rudders. The Blackbird is operated by a crew of two, a pilot and a reconnaissance systems officer. Power is provided by two Pratt and Whitney JT11D-20 engines whose military designation is J-58.

• Accurate surface details with recessed panel lines.
• Multi-part, separate J58 engines.
• Detailed cockpits of pilot and reconnaissance sytem officer (RSO).
• Two different nose segments.
• Four decal versions with authentic U.S. Air Force markings.

TAMIYA 1/48 Fieseler Fi 156C Storch

During WWII the Fieseler Fi156C was used at every front. It had the wonderful ability of taking off and landing over a short distance on both smooth and rough surfaces, and was often used for reconnaissance and liaison. This plane has been added to the 1/48 Aircraft Series as a Milestone 100th Release. When building this model many thoughts on what it must have been like to have flown in the Fieseler Fi156 may come to mind when you are working on its long canopy, broad wing span, and body. This is aimed to be a beautiful edition to its series. Additionally, famed military commanders such as Rommel frequently observed the front lines from the Fi156. A set of 6 figures including a pilot and officer are included allowing you to easily reproduce a variety of scenes such like Rommel giving instructions to a staff officer. The Storch was closely regarded by many in the German military as a fellow soldier. Other 1/48MM series can be added to build a diorama beyond genres which would be pleasurable.

This is an plastic model kit of the Fieseler Fi156C Storch.
This model shows the Fi156C's ability to take off and land in restricted areas.

Part#: TAM60754

Sketched out in a New York city hotel in April 1940, the North American Aviation Corporation NA73X went on to become one of the best fighters to come out of World War 2. The U.S. Army Air Corps gave it the title of P (for Pursuit) 51, and it was named Mustang by the British. Of the several variations of the Mustang, the P-51D is considered the definitive version and was the first to have the bubble canopy. More "D" models were built than any other variant, with a total of 9,603 being produced. Armed with six .50 caliber machine guns, three in each wing, with 400 rounds for each inboard gun and 270 rounds for the other four, plus underwing pylons for auxiliary fuel tans or 1000lb bombs, the Mustang was a true fighter pilots airplane. At the conclusion of WW2, Mustangs were in operation all over the world, flying in several nations air forces. When the Korean conflict broke out, hundred of F (for fighters) 51"s were in Japan awaiting scraping. Because they possessed too slow speed maneuverability that was absent in the new jets then entering service, the F-51 was ideal to work with Forward Air Controllers (FAC"s) on the ground in Korea. The major drawback to this was the F-51"s liquid cooled engine susceptibility to anti aircraft and small arms fire when attacking ground targets. This caused the Mustang to have the highest loss ratio of any aircraft in Korea. A total of 194 were lost in three years, with only 10 being downed in combat with other aircraft.

1:72 Tamiya Vought F4U-1A Corsair

Introduced into service in 1942, the Vought F4U-1 featured inverted gull wings and a massive 2,000hp engine spinning the largest propeller mounted on a fighter at the time. While the fighter?s performance and toughness was quite impressive, deficiencies such as inadequate forward visibility, restricted all-round visibility due to the early frame-like canopy, and the tendency for the left and right wings to stall at different speeds led to various improvements being added throughout production, eventually resulting in the F4U-1A version. These improvements included a longer tailwheel leg for better forward visibility, a new canopy for better all-round visibility, and an almost unnoticeable 15cm ?stall strip? fixed to the leading edge of the right wing to ensure both wings would stall at the same speed. = About the Model = * 1/72 scale assembly model kit of the Vought F4U-1A Corsair * Kit depicts a final F4U-1A Corsair production version with all improvements or versions at different stages of the improvement process. * Parts for 1000lb. bomb, external fuel tank, two types of propellers, and two types of tailwheel are included to provide many modelling possibilities * High quality decals for 3 different sets of markings

About Your P6M SeaMaster. The Glenn L. Martin Company, builder of the famous China Clipper, and well known for a line of successful seaplanes, designed and built the world's first multi-jet seaplane bomber, the P6M-1 SeaMaster, in the early 1950's. While the jet age was still in its infancy, this remarkable seaplane displayed several advanced features in addition to a flashing performance for such a large seaplane. The SeaMaster was developed for the Navy specifically for mine laying and photo reconnaissance duties, and was capable of operating from nearly any large body of water. To preserve the clean lines of it's sleek hull, the SeaMaster carried its weapons in a unique revolving bomb bay, which rotated to empty it's lethal cargo at high speed, yet retained a watertight seal in the hull when closed. The weapons were loaded through a hatch in the top of the fuselage while the plane rested in the water.

A crew of five operated the SeaMaster, which was armed only with a remotely-fired barbette of twin 20mm cannons in the tail, as its speed was equal to any interceptor likely to attack and the enemy could only approach from the rear. The first flight of this Advanced Patrol bomber took place in July 1955, at which time six YP6M-1 and twenty-four P6M-2 versions were ordered. However, just as production of the big flying boat was getting underway, the program was cut back and only eleven SeaMasters were completed. The last three were P6M-2's with bubble canopies and more powerful engines.
