Among the many celebrated pilots to fly the P-51 Mustang, the legendary fighter of the Second World War, was Abner Aust Jr. of the 506th Fighter Group. Stationed in the Pacific, Aust tallied five kills — the last two of which came on August 10, 1945, making him the final American ace of the war.
Featuring eye-catching green on its tail, this 1/48 scale, die cast model is a Hobby Master replica of Aust's warplane as it appeared at Iwo Jima with the 506th FG — and, most excitingly, it comes with a nameplate signed by the heroic ace himself! It also features engraved panel lines, an opening canopy, a well-appointed cockpit (including a removable pilot figure), a rotating propeller, authentic markings, optional-position landing gear, and a display stand. Measures approximately 8" long with a 9¼" wingspan.
