Regarding the rear of the canopy. It would depend on where the mustang was built. Texas built planes had a more bubble shaped canopy towards the rear than the California?built planes.
So it could be correct...

I have been looking for a big Mustang for awhile now. The 90 inchers just didn't rock my world. This one not only rocks it, it shakes it too!

What does worry me though, is the lack of instructions. And the lack of info/build threads on this bird. Seems like very few are venturing into this class of a build. I can understand why. The dollars alone would scare away the average modeler. I am guessing this would be a 15K build. Not for the faint of heart.

Subscribed & eagerly awaiting any updates!

We are flying today our fisher p 51 that was built by John Monaghan thanks for him building a great plane. We have the 310 il 4 cylender Kolm on board with cooling duct which works great. This is no kit for the average builder it took john nearly 2 years .Goetz and Daffney are good to work with I am working with them on a starter for the 310 now hope everything goes good today .
Thanks
Chuck

They are doing one more short run on both the Mustang and the Wildcat if anyone still has interest.

Right on, Peter!

Are you going to document progress in a thread?

Did you get the kit from Goetz? Maybe he had one or two lingering around here in the USA.

I still would like to have one. And I look forward to seeing your's come together

Noah

(also, what have you done with your incredible Avenger?!)

Hey Noah - hope all is well.

Yes I will post progress pics here.
Goetz supplied us (building this one for a friend) with one of the last kits.
Hope to get the Avenger in the air next year, too many planes - too little time.

Hey Noah,

Best wishes right back at you bud.

Not yet but very soon - just finishing up a restoration (also converting the wing folding hinge and gear to electric) of a CompArf Corsair.

Lots to do here - would you like a part time job?

Peter.

Not 100% sure but don't you restore classic and exotic automobiles?

I would be up for helping on those projects instead!

Hi Noah,

Hope all is well.

Not sure what the scheme will be yet.
Thought I would start with the heaviest part first (engine install) and the hernia can heal while I am installing l the servos.

Latest pics.

I struggled with that and decided there are too many obstructions in front of the fins on the carb side (pushrod tubes, rocker boxes, manifolds, carbs, etc).
An insulated heat shield /cold air box for the carburetors fed with a small inlet tube from the back side of the front scoop will keep things cool.
