Hello Number 1, The mustang is my fav warbird of all time. Please assign me a number and I will edit in some pics asap. Go the Mustang.I uploaded a pic of my still unfinished Comp ARF P-51 and a set of composite parts from my own moulds which I offer as a basic kit as well as foam wing & tail cores plus a canopy. All 84.5 inch 1/5 scale. Cheers Trent.

These are older pics. I'm a bit further along than shown here. But it has been on Hiatus for a while. Life has just gotten in the way a bit. I'm trying to get started on it again, but not sure I want to finish it, I may just get the TF art version and transfer everything into that one.

Thanks for starting this brotherhood. It's about time.

Eric

Here is my TF GE P-51B along with the rest of the fleet. The p51 has been on hold while I figure out the wheel doors, but finally got the correct hinges, so once my Corsair is off the bench I will be going after this to get it ready. Hoping to have both ready for a spring maiden.

Here are a couple of photos of my Nosen P-51. It is powered with an old Quadra .75. It uses Robart Retracts, covered in fiberglass and painted with Val-Spar Aluminum and Krylon Red. It weights 35 #. That's me standing along side an original Tuskegee Airman Instructor. His name is Rosco Draper and he is 94 years old. He flew the Stearman they used for training.....

hi,
sign me up as well,
I have an ESM P-51B model, with an RCG 30 engine, ESM air retracts, looks different to the D model, which is why I chose it, took quite a bit of setting up, getting the CofG right was the main problem, 100mm from the wing join, but now I am very happy with it.
Oldtimer.
