"Hon Mistake," a P-51D Mustang sent to the Pacific in 1945, was assigned to the 462nd Fighter Squadron where it was piloted by both 1st Lt. William G. Ebersole and 2nd Lt. James R. Bercaw. According to legend, the warplane received its nickname after shooting up an occupied Japanese outhouse.
Featuring a yellow-striped tail, this 1/48 scale, die cast model is a Hobby Master replica of "Hon Mistake" flown by Ebersole (who escorted B-29s) at Iwo Jima in 1945. It 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.
