GruMustang P51D, as flown by Major Louis 'Red Dog' Norley OC 334th FS, 4th FG, in April 1945
The P-51 Mustang was a long-range single seat WWII fighter aircraft designed and built by North American Aviation. The first production Mustangs were used by the RAF as tactical reconnaissance and fighter bombers. By 1944, the P-51D was a key player in ensuring Allied air superiority over Europe. During its lifetime, over 16,700 were built.
Major Louis 'Red Dog' Norley joined the 4th Fighter Group, 336 Fighter Squadron in July 1943. He earned the nickname because of the red Pluto cartoon figure on the side of his usual aircraft, although the cartoon did not appear on the Mustang - merely the 'Red Dog XII' lettering.The Oxford Diecast Mustang carries this lettering. The paint finish is exceptionally detailed too, notably the propellers and front fuselage, exhaust pipes and the anti glare panel.
Louis 'red Dog' Norley, one of the notable WWII fighter aces over Europe, ended the war with over 16 kills. He also went to become a Korean War veteran. He died in California in August 1967.
