I'd like to make the trip, but that's still up in the air right now. Here's my Mustang, H9 PTS with a bit of color modification. Evo .52 for power.

Cheers! BH

I'm gonna be there Friday, Saturday ans Sunday. I've had my tickets since April. I splurged and bought the flightline ticket for Saturday. Have grandstand tickets for the other two days. I'll be wearing the black hat w/ the Marine Corps emblem and "VMI '66" on the side. Looking forward to this one.

Nice looking 51's, Keep'em Coming!! We have along way to go to reach a 100
(we have to put this in perspective here to get an idea of just what 100 51's look like!)

Hard to imagine what 100 HeavyMetal P-51's would look like sitting all together?? WOW!!
and all for $25 what a deal that is!

Willey,

I'd love to be able to post a pic of my TFGS Mustang but I'm stuck on building the drop tank pillars. What did you use on yours and where did you get them?? Need help

The wing pylons my Dad built from scratch, balsa, ply, and alum. I'll post a pic soon for you.

Hi All,
Here's my Platt version 82" wing , Moki 180 ...........but , had only 12 months of flying ( about 40 flights ) before a snap at the bottom of a loop saw it killed ...Now into flying a KMP Spitfire, very nice, but the P51 is still my favorite. !! I will make another one soon, but not a Platt, ....too complicated ( and heavy ) for a second time around. Thinking of refinishing a CMP 140 version and fixing the unscale undercarriage...they have a very scale fuse.

Good luck with getting the posts.

Cheers,
M.M.

Merlinman,

I'm working on a 140 CMP right now too. I agree its pretty scale, but it takes a lot of work to get the more accurate scale outlines on the wing to make it look better. The link to my mods (kind of making them up as I go) is at:

Willey,
Thanks, I don't seem to be able to post more than 1 picture at a time( but that's ok, it's a touch tragic posting pictures of demised model anyway !! ) However, I am happy to pass on more details of this model if anyone wishes.

Oosiksmith, yes, I have been looking at your thread, you are doing a top job, and I will keep watching. Is it a matter of getting longer u/c struts and adjusting the wheel wells to suit ? ( sounds easy if you say it quickly !! ) Mind you, after building a Platt P51, anything sounds easy !!!!

Cheers
M.M.
