Hobby Master made the top one "City Of Winnepeg" in 1/48.

Yeah, I just don't collect that scale. Too big. Hobby Master doesn't do a 1/72 Mustang to the best of my knowledge.

No they do not, I wish they would've stuck to that scale at the beginning when they did their early WWII aircraft. There are still few out there still making the Mustang in 1/72, although the quality isn't as good as HM.

They're maybe a handful of Dragon 1/72 Mustangs out there, but not sure exactly what scheme. The RCAF may be a hard one to find.

I'm pretty sure nobody's done an RCAF Mustang in 1/72 yet.

I have a fairly comprehensive list of RCAF diecast and others with a Canadian connection.

Only one Mustang. The aforementioned HM one.

Have never come across any others.

Most of my collection is 1/72 Scale - but this was my first 1/48 Scale purchase.

No other RCAF Mustang has been done in Diecast that I am aware of.


Hobby Master 1/48 Air Power Series
HA7707 - P-51D Mustang
402 City of Winnipeg Sqn., RCAF


Post War RCAF Mustang IV 402 City of Winnipeg Squadron.

During WW II three RCAF Sqns (No. 400,414 and 430) used early model Mustangs in the reconnaissance role and No 441 and 442 Sqns converted to the Mk IV (P-51D) in 1945 for long range escort duties.

In the post-war period, the RCAF acquired a further 88 Mustang IV aircraft for use by both regular and auxiliary squadrons. The aircraft survived in this latter role until 1961.

I must admit, it does look good. I just wish it was... smaller.
