    Hey guys,

    Rather than continuing to clog up Red Raider's build thread talking about the different Mustang plans sets I thought I'd post a new thread to gather up and discuss what the options are.

    I'm looking for P-51B plans but let's tally up everything that's out there for big Mustang builds.

    Bates plans are very well regarded. I would just blow up his plans, 89"doesn't belong on this website. :)

    Upsizing the Bates plans is a good idea. I emailed him to see what he would charge to print the plans with 102" wingspan.

    I'm sorry to disrespect you guys with an 89" set of plans. :cool:

    I emailed Jerry Bates about larger size Mustang plans and he pointed out that they are offered as a 112", 1/4 scale version which isn't listed in the site catalog but is in the downloadable current version of the catalog. For $78 shipped it seems like a great deal and I'll be ordering a set tonight. Not sure when this little lady might finally fly but let's get the plans here and see how far I can get with the stacks of wood I already have here.

    Thanks Chris, it's appreciated. You've got your hands full lately, I really hope it's all going great with the baby.

    As for the big Mustang, the plans should be here this week and after giving them a good look and double checking my sanity we'll start making parts. I probably won't ever finish it (I'm telling myself that so I won't get crazy over it) but I'm going to see what it's like to make the kit first. ;)
