Bluespot51,
I built one of these as my first kit. It is a great flyer! I even had the horizontal stab way off. It flew nose low! I wish I could help you with your manual. Good luck

Have you got a manual yet? Is it a .40 or .60 size? I can scan mine for you if needed, but it may take me a while, but then you can print up your own manual. It's about 11 pages so it may take me a while to get around to it.

Hi, when I built mine, all instructions were printed on the plans. Did that change?

I don't know when they changed that. I have the "Marks Model" fun scale mustang, and the instructions are on the "plans"(such as they are). The Dynaflite versions of the kit I built included a complete plan and a 12 page manual for construction. They are also totally different construction, but seem to be the same "design" as far as the airfoil and shape of the plane. At some point after Dynaflite took over the line they redesigned it. I think I read somewhere they had the .60 size designed then redesigned the .40 size to have the same type of construction. But, the .60 size didn't come with a full set of plans either. I currently have a kit of the Marks Models Mustang, and the Dynaflite .60 size. I have plans and book from my kit for the .40 size, and that's enough info to build another one from.

Hi All,
Thanks for the returns ! I have a plan which is about A0 size showing the outline of the fusalage and dimensions, a small boklet from Jemco with a step by step build, so It looks like I have the whole shootin match.
I was expecting some pictorial and steps to show how it goes together, but I should be able to work out which pieces go where! on the plan.

Realy great thanks to you guys for the help, I think I need to identify all of the parts first, then the hardest part will be putting together the foam wings as they need to be covered with the obeche panels.

I have some pictures of the box, i'll post them tommorow, If I can get them off my phone. darn new tecnology !!

Thanks Again

Hello; I have that kit and have just commenced construction. I was daunted by the foam wing, but I'll try it without prejudise. I have already built a balsa wing anyway. I like the interlocking fuselage, it should support the Saito 65 I have in mind for it. Who knows, maybe have some fun.
I don't have the 13 page instruction book, and I see on the plans little reminders to "do this or do that"now. I'll stumble through and make a straight fuselage.

Any brief tips would sure be appreciated.

Default RE: Dynaflite P51 Mustang Build Manual

Hi Donkey_Doctor,
I see we are both in the same place with the build ! I have just started removing the parts from the precut panels and marking them up!

I do have the small Jemsco instruction booklet , if you would like a copy please drop me an email with your address and I will copy and send,( I think you can find it in my profile, if not i'll swithch it on in the side panel. (I need to find out how !!)

I see you are fitting a Saito 65 sounds quite big to shoehorn it in, how about the prop size ? It say's in the book to fit the engine quite early on in the build so it looks like it could be a problem if too big ?

I have an ASP 60 four stroke to fit (Left over from an uncomissionable Spitfire )
" say no more " bin bag job !!

As we had a very wet winter here in England, half our field was under water and the ground is quite soft. Then quite dramatically after the 100 ft rolling dive all I could see was the leading edge of the Spitfire wing, this was touching the ground nose first, the rest was in the ground, about a foot I would say !! Brand new engine !! but after a spade and quick dig, it was out stripped cleaned and dropped into oil for a soak !! none the worse for wear. Lucky eh !!

The only tips I think I can give is realy the glue's,I like to use the Aliphatic (kind of PVA but seems to be stronger !), and 5 min epoxy. not too keen on the Cyno, as it gives a hard joint, but after a shock it seems break the seal.

I think most probably you have built more kits than me, so you should give me the tips'

I'll post some more picks when I get the hang of this darn phone, nice to" Yak "with you.

Anyway Donkey_Docktor, you have a good build, and If i can help, post me a note, and let you know what we do here in England !

Best Regards
Pp (Dont forget, onward and upward ! )

P.S I just thought, I can PDF the booklet and post it here if nobody objects ?

Did you ever get the Dynaflite F-82 Twin Mustang manual you wanted? If you did, I also need a copy and will pay a reasonable fee plus postage.

Saw your reply to someone else in need of a manual . My father inlaw has been working on his model for about 40 years. We are trying to get him to finish it but the instructions have been misplaced. He has the .40 size.
Are you able to help me?

Denise, do you know if it's a P-51 or a Fun Scale Mustang.40? It makes a difference. These are 2 different models made by the same company(that changed names a few times..)

The company would be either Jemco or MarksModels. DynaFlite didn't exist 40yrs ago, or carry either one of the Mustangs until probably 25yrs ago. The planes are different in that the P-51 is much more scale in shape and appearance, the FunScale still looks like a Mustang, but isn't quite as accurate in shape.

Since you say it was 40yrs ago, I'm sure you'll need the whole plan sheet... the instructions were printed on the plan sheet along with the full size plan.

Try this link(hoping it works), for a plan sheet for the Jemco FunScale Mustang.40... see if this might look familiar.

http://outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=5572

It's a free download, view it on your computer, and if it is the plane, just take the file to a local printer(Kinkos/FedEx/etc..), and have them output it at 100%. It will cost about $10 give or take.

If the link doesn't work, I'll come back and fix it... but give it a shot anyway. I hope this makes sense. Your Dad has to finish that Mustang!! Good luck.

Thank you so much! My husband probably exaggerated a bit on the age 🤣 Of the plane. It is a dynaflite .40 and has been gathering dust for a long time.. I will give this link a try. You've been extremely helpful.

If he did exagerate, the plans I linked might not exactly match what you have..Unless he got a very early DynaFlite version before they changed it. Since I read it was the 40yr old version the plans/plane I linked were from that era. The DynaFlite version was different though from the MarksModels and older Jemco... MarksModels sold to DynaFlite probably 25yrs ago give or take, and DynaFlite took these types of designs and updated them, so the family of Mustangs they had did go through some changes... If this were the FunScale 60, I actually have those plans in my computer, but the .40 was smaller and different... and obviously there were a few versions produced throughout the years. I've had 3 of these, and now have the .60 size version, and I'm always on the lookout for these kits of any era. They're just that fun. Very memorable models. .

They all had the instructions written on the plan sheet though.. a formal/seperate manual wasn't written. Actually if you Google the plane, and search images, and hit on as many links as you can find, you might come up with what you need as well. These were all popular and fun planes.

My mistake...he has a 60 engine, not a 40. I have plans for the Jemco Mustang but need the plans for the Dynaflite Mustang P51. He said the Jemco wouldn't work.

If in fact he has a DynaFlite Fun Scale Mustang .60 I can help you out I have those plans in PDF and can email them to you with some instructions on how to proceed. I sent you a PM.
