Jeff...

Many thanks for the photos. It looks like there's plenty of room for flight batteries.

Did you make your tail wheel retractable?

Curt

Does anybody that flys this plane notice any nose over tendency? I have angled the wheels forward on an ESM mustang by putting a washer or two under the back of the retractmount just wondering if I need to do the same here.

In two years on our grass field I never had a nose over with this plane.

I have one of these that has been hanging in my shop for a few years. I had done most of the grunt work on it so it is just a few hours of work away from being flyable.
I was going to sell it until I saw Robart is making electric retracts for her. That inspired me to keep and finish her.
I just received the retracts and they are nice. I can't wait till I can get to finishing her.

I am going to finish it out in the scheme the Abe P. Rosenberg camouflage version.

That will look sweet!...The retracts are perfect drop in. I did open up the wheel wells for the bigger tires. That helps keeping it from tipping. The Truturn spinner is a must have also.

Love this scheme! I've been trying to talk some of the guys around the office to do this scheme on a Mustang someday, but so far no takers.

DLE 35RA. I think that engine is perfect for this plane. I had an H-9 P-47 150 with a G-38 in it, that thing was much faster than I expected it to be.
That makes me think one of these with a DLE 35RA will blow the doors off that.

Dave, honestly, if you re-engineer the giant P-51, like the P-47, this scheme probably help market the plane.

The current scheme, Ferocious Frankie, is one of the most attractive P-51s that has been offered.

It will be easy to bash this to the A.P. Rosenberg scheme.

I am pretty sure I got the 5" from them. The P-51 style. I call them to make sure I got the right adaptors. They are very good at Truturn.

Thanks, Jeff... I just ordered a set of electric retracts from Robart and will order the model this week.

I noticed that the wheels supplied with the kit are only 3.5 inches. What size did you end up using? I see they are the Robart aluminum wheels and the smallest size they make is 4 inches Also, Robart seems to be out of stock forever on their wheels. I've had a set on order for my H9 P-47 (the new 30cc one that I converted to electric) since Halloween.

Scale is 1:5.5 or there abouts.

Robart has the plastic 4" scale wheels too. You just have to fill them with foam because they will flatten a bit on any plane over 15 lbs. Don't know why Robart doesn't put a foam core in these wheels like their aluminum rimmed wheels. The spinner is 5" and I picked up a Dave Brown P-51 (parabolic) spinner for mine. $59.99

I'm thinking about putting some Tony Howard scale exhaust on it too. Just doesn't seem right to go to the trouble of doing the scheme I want just to use the stock vacuum formed ones.

I order the 4" aluminum 10 spoke wheels direct from Robart. They make the wheels on demand. I have ordered 2 sets in the past. Had about a 2 week wait on one set. The tires are solid and you have assemble them. They track excellent. Look Awesome!

4" is the max that you can open the wheel well. I had to sand on the Rib a bit to keep it from hanging up.

Not Cheap! but are worth it. I have them on both my hanger 9 birds.

Blake,

If you haven't already seen them, take a look at the Gallery section on my website. There are a couple of nicely done Hangar 9 -150 Mustangs with my exhaust kits.

I also have an inexpensive kit for the air filter covers - much easier than trying to drill the holes and more scale like than a decal.

Whatever way you go, be sure to put the bottom of the exhaust fairings (not the exhaust stacks) on the thrust centerline. Don't know if it's been corrected yet, but the original kit location was too high up on the cowl.

Jeff...

I am thinking of using the Rimfire motor as well and was wondering how you adapted the TT spinner to the motor shaft? Is the shaft drilled and tapped for a 10-32 bolt?

Thanks again...

curt

Jeff... I downloaded the motor's manual and see that the shaft is 8mm and threaded 1.25....
