Dragon Warbirds 50019
USAAF North American P-51D Mustang
352nd FG, 487th FS, "Petie 2nd", John Meyer, RAF Bodney, England, August 1944
1/72 Scale









There's an old saying among fighter pilots, "I'd rather be an ace than a general." John Meyer was both.

Several World War II fighter aces who remained on active duty became General Officers, but only a few reached four-star rank. One of them was John C. Meyer, fourth-ranking US ace in Europe, with 24 confirmed air-to-air victories, including one German jet. Of the top 15 Eighth Air Force Aces, Meyer also was the leader in aircraft destroyed on the ground, the most hazardous of fighter operations.

Dragon undoubtedly had the best P-51D (1/72 Scale Diecast) model in the business. A shame that the tooling no longer exists. If you get a chance to purchase a Dragon Mustang - don't hesitate - buy it! Again no pilot is provided (Hobby Master figure used).
