Book Cover

Written by Pobert Peczkowski, with color illustrations by Teodor Liviu Morosanu, this book focuses on the “D” model of the ubiquitous P-51 Mustang. For such a small book, 6 ½ by 9 inches, it packs a powerful punch in its 152 pages of intense coverage of the Mustang.

There are 32 pages of black and white images which cover the development of the “D” and “K” models of the Mustang. A full-color section of 120 pages provides a great deal of “detail” for the modeler who wishes to “up their game” on a Mustang project. Drawings and illustrations are included, and add that extra value that modelers seek when selecting research material.

Bound within the publication are 3-view plans of the “D” in 1/72nd scale, with 1/48th and 1/32nd plans, on folded paper inserted in the book.

A set of excellent full-color profiles are included on the final 28 pages of the book.

This book has it all…. Cockpit illustrations and photos from every angle, full color detail images of the landing gear and wheel wells, excellent technical images of the engine showing all the “plumbing”….and full color profiles and color images….. a true modeler’s delight.

This publication is highly recommended for anyone preparing to build a “D” or “K” model of the Mustang, or for anyone who is a Mustang aficionado. Thanks to MMP for supplying a copy of this book to IPMS for review.
