In 1944 the USAAF 14th Air Force became involved in the Sino-Japan War on the side of the Nationalist Chinese Air Force. By this time the CNAF (CNAC Chinese Nationalist Air Corps) already had been fairly well equipped with up-to-date aircraft delivered by the U.S. By 1944 the list included the A-29, P-40, P-43 and P-66s and, with the defeat of Germany, more of the latest aircraft began arriving in 1945 which included the B-25 Mitchell, B-17 Flying Fortress along with P-51B and P-51D Mustangs. Several Mustangs came from the 23rd Fighter Squadron.

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 P-51 was a fast and durable aircraft.


Hobby Master offers a wide selection of quality, pre-assembled, diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted to a high level of accuracy using specifications of the original aircraft. They are constructed with precision-made diecast metal and some plastic components.

  • Opening canopy
  • Detailed cockpit with removable pilot figure
  • Realistic panel lines and antennas
  • Historically accurate printed markings
