WWII Mustang Desk Model

The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang is an American long-range, single-seat fighter and fighter-bomber used during World War II and the Korean War, among other conflicts. The Mustang was designed in 1940 by North American Aviation (NAA) in response to a requirement of the British Purchasing Commission. The Purchasing Commission approached North American Aviation to build Curtiss P-40 fighters under license for the Royal Air Force (RAF). Rather than build an old design from another company, North American Aviation proposed the design and production of a more modern fighter. The prototype NA-73X airframe was rolled out on 9 September 1940, 102 days after the contract was signed, and first flew on 26 October.[6][7]


Legions of soldiers whiling their time away in desolate trenches during the World Wars created a special kind of folk art, which became known as trench art. Our iconic aluminum desk fighter planes, a Mustang and a Spitfire, are exact copies of WWII original trench art models. The originals were probably crafted by plane mechanics stationed in isolated airfields in the British Isles.
