Description

 

This 1/72 scale vacuform kit bash of the Rareplanes and Wings 72 P-51H kits used a Roberts prop and other parts to depicts a 1945 point defense intercepter to defend Kadena AAB.

Its design is fictitious and its serial number is from a cancelled P-40 contract.

Given the Mustang development in the XP-78 and P-51F, G, H, and J, coupled with the canard layout this plane might have been the Allied response to the suicide attacks off Okinawa.
