Their kits are very nicely done! I have built one of their AT-6s before and I was amazed at the detail of the kit![X(]

From my experience while building my 126.8" Corsair of a blown up Ziroli plan I had to make my own canopy and cowl. They took several months to design and complete. I won't do it again.

I only knew Bob for a few years when i was little. Now im in high school and all i think about when im building is what would bob do. he is my mentor and my personal hero. He built the B-29 and x1 for the right stuff. now its my favorite movie. i still consider him my best friend and he will always be. my dad has many vhs tapes of bob and all sorts of his buddies who are still my only friends to this day but their names will remain anonymous.

Bob Campbell from N. Canton, Ohio is dwarfed by his 12 foot wingspan P-51. Bob's incredible 1/3 scale mustang is scratch built from balsa sheeted foam. Aluminum tape gives it the metal finish. This plane is huge and performs with power to spare with a 240cc inline twin up front. A great looking and flying Mustang.

But I can't find plans anywhere, so I believe it's the Ziroli Plans enlarged, can anyone help me? I'll just need some training for flying so I'll also build a smaller one (P-51) at the same time, or propably the smaller first, the the bigger one.

In other words, How did this guy build this plane? Is it a 1/3 plan or did he use another plan and enlarged/modified it? Where did he get those metal and fiberglass parts? (retracts, cowl, windshield, etc...)
I just need help on getting all need (info on where to get parts and info on the plans) to build this 1/3 P-51, as for the smaller version I'll probably just build a normal (not modified) Ziroly P-51.

Thanks.
I NOW HAVE PLANS FOR A 1/2 SCALE P-51 MUSTANG , 204'' WINGSPAN ENLARGED FROM A 102'' MUSTANG . steveandjulie1@aapt.net.au
