Default RE: Hangar 9 150 Size P-51

Hi Guys! The pilot I used is from Blue Box Toys collectibles. I just noticed that Hobby People have them in their catalog. It is their "Elite Force" line and the pilot is called Doc Miller, WWII pilot @ $35. The detail is amazing! I had to cut out the cockpit deck that the model comes with and there is plenty of room for a full cockpit without interfering with controls, etc. Unfortunately, that's probably where a tank would go for pnumatic gear. I did need to cut him of at the knees! I used the top flight 1/5 scale P-51 cockpit kit. I'm getting lots of ohh and ahhs at the flying feild!! Hey I still would like to get a couple of spares of the original mechanical gear. If your just going to throw them away e-mail me and lets work something out? Flyboy1950
