This is a 1:72 scale replica of the Mustang P-51 Mk IV piloted by Royal Australian Air Force pilot Lewis Robert ‘Lew’ Ranger, which he named Anita. It is also an exact replica of the aircraft that bore the ‘Firewall’ camouflage scheme, as flown by him in Europe in 1945. Born in September 1924, ‘Lew’ Ranger was part of the WWII Commonwealth forces in which his 3 Squadron RAAF became the first Royal Australian Air Force unit to fly Mustangs. At the time, the squadron was based in Italy with the RAF’s First Tactical Air Force. Lew Ranger died in May 2009.
With aircraft code CV-W, the model of ‘Anita’ is decorated with drab olive and grey upper surfaces with light grey under surfaces. The codes are printed in white. The aircraft features red propeller spinner and black aerials, a blue rudder with a white Southern Cross. The name ‘ANITA’ is printed in yellow below the cockpit window. The cockpit interior itself is moulded in green. Gun barrels, ejector slots, propeller spinner and the instrument panel are all black, with other fine details including a silver exhaust shroud and rusty brown exhaust pipes.
