P-51C Kitten signed by Tuskegee Ace Charles McGee. In all 1,750 P-51C models were built. The NAA model #s was&nbsp,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&nbsp,Squadron. Mr. McGee passed away on January 16, 2022,&nbsp,at the age of 102.
