Scale Plans built P-51

  1. I forgot to put the exhaust stacks on for the first picture. They were difficult to do, but sure turned out better than my usual attempts.

    I would like a set of those plans. I tried contacting rcwarbirdbuiler but no response. Can you tell me how to get a set? Thanks
  3. Getting them from George is the only way. Let me see what I can do.
  4. I sent a message to George. Let’s see if he answers.
  5. I know I said hinging was my least favorite thing to do when building from plans. It’s not. Sanding is. I sprayed the plane with the Montana Gold spray paint. As it turns out, it’s not as horrible as I said. I think buffing it out and spraying it with clear coat, it might’ve been ok. But, since I’m using Wingswestrc paint, I sanded the entire plane twice. Once with 120 wet, then with 220 wet. Trying to find a bright spot in all this sanding, (3 days worth), I was able to fix a lot of small errors that showed up under the Silver. Now, the spray paint makes an excellent primer/base coat. Ordered the paint tonight, expect it probably Thursday. Until then, I’ll finish the hinging and install the power box.

    George replied to me to say he's not selling plans anymore. I asked if he'd send the files to my local Staples who could print and then delete them but he didn't respond. The Jerry Bates 1/4 scale (112") plans are $60 plus $18 shipping, Jerry replied right away to my emails so he'll have a set in the mail to me this week. Not sure I need a 112" Mustang on my bench but that appears to be the direction I'm going in at the moment. :lol2:

  7. I can tell you that a 103” Mustang is a shop full!!! At least in a small basement shop like mine. I don’t know if it takes up more room with parts laying about, or put together on top of the table.
    George’s plans are all hand drawn. He doesn’t have them in a digital format.

    That would make sense then. Was hoping to hear back from him since the Nosen Mustang was the one I always wanted to build but with his B mods already done it seemed like the best of both worlds. It's a big project to commit to, kudos to you for taking it on, we'll see if I get it started or if the plans go on the pile.

    Watching your progress is certainly motivating to do something!

    I really want to build that nosen too. I have the original nosen plans and short kit but the he built it seemed easier
