|A model or a print?||Our models reveal more than diecast ever will
AND never need dusting.
The cutaway is created from P-51 repair manuals and parts catalog as well as period and restoration photographs.
The lefthand side side of the model features Chuck Yeager's Glamorous Glenn in 1944.
The interior view of the Mustang reveals the engineering that helped win the air war in Europe. The model features the cross section of the laminar-flow, low-drag airfoil whose curves made the wings the most efficient of the war. Inside the wing cross section, there is one of the 6 0.50 caliber machin guns. The simplicity of the fuselage frame allowed the Mustang to be mass produced in large numbers. The integrated design of the water cooler and oil cooler minimized parasitic drag and actually produced forward thrust at high speeds due to the Meredith effect . The large fuselage fuel tank behind the pilot gave the Mustang the range to reach Berlin. The Rolls-Royce Merlin minimizes the frontal area of the Mustang while generating high horsepower at altitude by placing the intercooler and supercharger behind the engine.
Size: 22" x 9"
We can also customize this cutaway with any serial number or markings. The design will remain the same as pictured but, will carry your desired serial number and markings. Please allow three to four weeks delivery on custom items as they need to be built from scratch. Once completed, we can also use the artwork to make coffee mugs, t-shirts, and magnets.
