P-51C Kitten signed by Tuskegee Ace Charles McGee. In all 1,750 P-51C models were built. The NAA model #s was the NA-103 and NA-111. The first C models were P-51C-1NT (NT for Dallas, NA for Inglewood). These had the first Packard built RR Merlin used in the Mustangs, the V-1650-3. The fuselage tank was added to P-51C-1s and then renamed P-51C-3NT. Later the more powerful V-1650-7 Merlin was introduced in the P-51C-5NT and -10 blocks. Alternate air source was added early on in the first block of P-51Cs. The P-51C suffered the same problems as the P-51B with gun jamming and poor visibility to the rear. As with the B model, these problems were fixed at the factory and in the field.

This model has a plate on the stand that is personally signed by Charles McGee, an ace with the Tuskegee Squadron. Mr. McGee passed away on January 16, 2022, at the age of 102.

Mahogany Wood. Scale: 1/24. Wingspan 18 5/8 inches, Length 16 1/4 inches.
