Amazing 1/5th scale P-51D Mustang by Mr. David Glen
November 24, 2014 in Aviation
Found during my recent visit to RAF Cosford was this new, massive P-51D model which is now adorning the entrance hall to the museum and which I thought is worth sharing. This model was built and donated by Mr David Glen as a tribute to the US aircrew who gave their lives in two world wars.
Scratchbuilt to 1/5 scale, it is an accurate replica built using original production drawings. The attention to detail is self-evident. From start to finish, the model took David ten years to accomplish.
Previously, David Glen had also built a similarly scaled Spitfire Mk. I which is on display at the RAF Museum in Hendon.
