And for the modeler who enjoys the occasional wingy-thing, 1/32 scale hollow Packard-built Merlin engine exhausts are available for your P-51 Mustang kits. The design is optimized for the new Revell P-51D-5 kit but can be adapted for other Merlin-engined P-51 models (and P-40F, too):

A set of P-51 Mustang exhausts is also available in 1/24 scale. They can help improve the otherwise excellent classic Airfix/Heller/MPC kit's Merlin engine:
