The H-King VQ Models P-51B Mustang (ARF) "Berlin Express" has a highly detailed "weathered look" covering to reflect the wartime struggles and hardships that this legendary fighter went through, see below. This ARF model also includes servoless retracts with scale-looking oleo's (exclusive to H-King), a realistic hand-painted pilot, spinner, molded air scoop and drop tanks, fiberglass cowl, servo mounts, decals, and a complete hardware pack including mount and fuel tank for the glow version.


Other features include flaps and a battery hatch to facilitate easy battery pack changes between flight sorties if you are electrifying the Mustang. Please note the photos show a few details that you will need to add on at the building stage. These photos illustrate how a few extra details such as antenna and antenna wire etc can increase the scale appearance of your model.


William Bruce "Bill" Overstreet Jr. (April 10, 1921 – December 29, 2013) was an American fighter pilot and a veteran of the 357th Fighter Group, 363rd Fighter Squadron of the United States Army Air Forces during World War II. He is best known for his solo pursuit of a German Messerschmitt Bf 109G underneath the arches of the Eiffel Tower in 1944


In the spring of 1944, Bill Overstreet and his P-51B Mustang, the "Berlin Express", were near Paris when the action started, immortalized in the artwork by Len Krenzler. Overstreet had followed a Bf109 from the enemy fighter sortie that had attacked the US bomber group he was escorting. After most of the German fighters had broken off the attack, Overstreet and the German had begun a running dogfight, but as they neared Paris the Bf109 pilot had Overstreet on his tail. With the German pilot's desperation undoubtedly growing, he aimed his plane at the Eiffel Tower and in a surprising maneuver, flew beneath it. Undeterred, Overstreet followed right behind him scoring several hits which caused the Bf 109G to crash.


The P-51 Mustang is one of the most iconic US fighters of World War II. The P-51B was an early P-51 Model and could be known as a P-51B or P-51C depending on where the plane was assembled. If you own a P-51D Mustang then add its forerunner to your squadron today! The distinct canopy and razorback will turn heads wherever you fly!

The model arrived well packaged with no damage at all. Nice details, easy construction, just take a little time with it and it will turn out well. Looking forward to the maiden flight.

Very nice

Dec 21, 2020

I have flown for the first time, if flies very well.
Very nice build quality!
The retract pins are super soft, I can easily bend them with my fingers, the model tracks very poorly on take off. I had a bit of a cross wind and it likes to weather-vane and ground-loop, big time! It lands fine but trying to take off smoothly and steady was a real task, she spins fast and hard! When it does the retract pins bent! I will try and change the tow-in, the retracts aim forward already.
Apart from that, she is beautiful, well worth the money!

Great for the money.

Bought this for my retirement, 10 years away I know, but heyho.
All appears good as I have inspected the contents and cycled the retract, you never know.
I have also set aside a full house of servo`s and an engine with this.
I will report back in 11 years. :)

Un avion sans histoire

Jun 19, 2020

Ce P51 même s'il n'est pas un maquette, ressemble bien à l'avion grandeur. Très sain à piloter, l'avion semble sur des rails. Son premier vol a été effectué par un temps orageux où les soudaines rafales de vents ne le gênaient en rien. Le train rentrant paraît solide et autorisera quelques atterrissages virils. Le revêtement a tendance à se plisser au soleil, rien de grave car les plis disparaissent une fois à l'ombre. Il faudra toutefois prévoir une housse si le modèle stationne en plein soleil. Je regrette cependant une erreur d'HK concernant sur le poids prêt à voler. En effet j'ai utiliser des équipements plus légers que ceux préconisés, et j'obtiens un avion pratiquement 1 kg plus lourd qu'annoncé (3.75 kg pour 2.8 kg prévus). Dommage car si j'avais connu ce poids avant l'assemblage, j'aurai choisi une autre motorisation.

Un avion sans histoire

Jun 14, 2020

L'assemblage est facile, même si quelques ajustements sont nécessaires. Je n'ai pas encore eu l'occasion de faire voler l'avion, mais pour avoir déjà possédé la version "Tuskegee" légèrement plus petite, je n'ai aucun doute concernant ses qualités de vol. Le seul reproche que je ferai à HK, c'est l'erreur du site à propos du poids prêt à voler. Mon avion pèse 3.7 kg et non 2.7 kg comme indiqué dans la description du modèle et j'ai utilisé des servos, un contrôleur et un moteur plus légers que ceux préconisés. Je ne trouve pas ce poids prohibitif pour un avion de 62,2", mais j'aurai certainement choisi une autre motorisation si j'avais connu ce poids avant l'achat du moteur. Le train d'atterrissage semble solide, il faudra le confirmer à l'usage. Le centrage est facile à obtenir, le CG étant pratiquement au niveau de l'emplacement prévu pour la batterie. Le revêtement imprimé en mat avec les détails des tôles et les trappes est du plus bel effet, dommage qu'il se plisse facilement au soleil. Il faudra prévoir une housse ou un entreposage à l'ombre entre les vols.
