This 1943 Grey Mustang P-51 was an American long-range, single-seat fighter and fighter bomber used during World War II, the Korean War, and other conflicts.

The realism of this 3D 1943 Mustang P-51 painting is incredible. Upon closer look, you will notice the plane is exposed out from the frame along with other details such as propeller, wings, cockpit, landing wheels, and the word mustang fighter imprinted on the frame. It is completely handmade from iron and painted to give it an authentic look. It'll make a good wall decoration piece for your home or office. A must-have for the collector and enthusiast!
The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang was an American long-range, single-seat fighter and fighter bomber used during World War II, the Korean War, and other conflicts. The Mustang was conceived, designed, and built by North American Aviation (NAA) in response to a specification issued directly to NAA by the British Purchasing Commission. The prototype NA-73X airframe was rolled out on 9 September 1940, 102 days after the contract was signed and, with an engine installed, first flew on 26 October. The Mustang was originally designed to use the Allison V-1710 engine, which had limited high-altitude performance. It was first flown operationally by the Royal Air Force (RAF) as a tactical-reconnaissance aircraft and fighter bomber (Mustang Mk I). The addition of the Rolls-Royce Merlin to the P-51B/C model transformed the Mustangs' performance at altitudes above 15,000 ft., giving it a much better performance that matched or bettered almost all of the Luftwaffes fighters at altitude. The definitive version, the P-51D, was powered by the Packard V-1650-7, a license-built version of the Rolls-Royce Merlin 60 series two-stage two-speed supercharged engine, and armed with six .50 caliber(12.7 mm) M2 Browning machine guns.
