AND never need dusting.
The interior view of the Mustang reveals the engineering that helped win the air war in Europe. The topmost layer is a cross section of the laminar-flow, low-drag airfoil whose curves made the wings the most efficient of the war. The next layer contains the landing gear whose design minimized the landing accidents that the ME 109 and Spitfire were so prone to. The Mustang's landing gear opened out rather than opening in, giving the Mustang a much wider wheel base for landing by tired pilots. 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.

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.
