Aircraft designer Shigeru Tanaka has just released his new FS2004 model, P-51D Mustang Whitehead Eagle.

The graceful North American P-51D Mustang, recognized by many authorities as the epitome of fighters of WWII era, outperformed all other Allied fighters in speed, range, style, and maneuverability to become established as the principal fighter plane. This FS2004 model, depicted as the famous Whitehead Eagle with code FT-L, s/n 463607, 353FS, 354FG, 8AF, reproduces a graceful enough and yet powerful streamlines of this outstanding wild horse in absolute accuracy of entire perfect proportion and cutting-edge fine details, making the most of all the advanced fs features, including full animations of sliding canopy, control surfaces, landing gears, pop-down landing light and landing gear covers, pilot head turning left/right in sync and proportion with control stick movement. 75-gallon drop tanks on/off by toggling the / key. Rolling wheels, main landing gears with dynamic suspension motions and steering tail gear.

Original high quality 2D panel with kneeboard, map, ATC, Garmin GPS 295, and radio stack for autopilot available for contemporary flightsim purposes. Highly detailed realism ranges from accurately pitched and cuffed propeller blades, accurately recessed nose and belly air intake sections, precisely made rear view mirror, meticulously crafted landing gear struts, finely and precisely made pitot tube, antenna mast, AN/APS-13 antenna array on vertical tail, fine aileron actuator covers on wings, to the unprecedented level of accurate details in cockpit inside including gun sight, moving control stick, pedals, instrumental panel and side panels for 3D virtual cockpit, authentic pilot figure with oxygen mask hose half released, bullet-proof headrest plate, transmission receiver and radio and etc. through adequately translucent and reflective canopy window glass.

Effective use of dynamic shine in combination with advanced bmp textures to successfully render breathtakingly brilliant bare duralumin external surfaces, with realistic weathering and service stains for even better realism. Flight dynamics designed specifically for FS2004 flights. Complete with very distinct clear Mustang sound package by Aaron Swindle included through friendly prior consent.
