This 1:16 scale sectioned model was commissioned by the Museum and built by Mr B.D Hede in 1968. It represents A68-565 a US-built P-51K-10-NT Mustang flown by the RAAF. This aircraft was issued to 84 Squadron RAAF on 4 July 1945 with the code letters LB-V. It was badly damaged in a take-off accident on 2 August 1945 at Bohle River near Townsville and later converted to components. The only difference between the P-51D and P-51K was the hollow blade steel 'Aeroproducts' propeller fitted to the latter.
