I don't think it is necessary to go into a step-by-step construction of this model, for anyone who has built a "Nobler," can build the "P-51." Avoid making the same mistake I did however, I became an epoxy freak. The stuff is very addictive to someone who likes to build quickly and just for that reason, it is fast. It took about 17 gallons to complete my ship and when finished, I had a very strong model that weighed almost as much as the real airplane. Even with the excessive weight of my original model it still flew well with a Super Tiger .60, and a 13.5 prop. In fact I was so pleased, that "Mustang II" is under construction, with a weight goal of 72 ounces.
The P-51 Mustang is one of the most famous US fighters of WW II. The P-51B Mustang was the first Merlin-engine version and appeared in 1943. The Merlin-powered Mustangs were exactly what the Allied bombers in Europe desperately needed, and they became famous for their long range and potent high-altitude escort capable.
