Corgi Legends Series Diecast Model

North American P-51 D-20 Mustang - "The Flying Undertaker", Major William Shomo, 82nd TRS, USAAF, Philippines, 1945

1:72 scale.  Length: 5.25".  Wingspan: 6.25"



Maj. William Shomo was awarded the Medal of Honor for claiming seven Japanese aircraft in a single mission. During the battle, his aircraft was damaged by debris and he was issued this Mustang in its place. Learning of Shomo's pre-war occupation, US war correspondents quickly dubbed him "The Flying Undertaker".

The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang was a single-seat World War II fighter aircraft. First flown on October 26, 1940, the P-51 was designed and built in just 117 days. It flew most of its missions as a bomber escort in raids over Germany, helping ensure Allied air superiority from 1944. As well as being economical to produce, the Mustang was a fast and durable aircraft
