Foiled Hasegawa P-51D

Recommended Posts

Just a quick comment I thought others might enjoy. Brian and I are often asked how long it takes to learn how to foil. I checked my Brian Leitch emails and found the original contact from the 3rd of February, 2008. At that time, Brian had not done ANY foiling! Brian is a quick study, but I think this can be used to give an indication of how long it took to get to this point. However, don't use this as a benchmark; his first foiled models were excellent. With this build he has taught all of us many new tricks, and has taken the art of foiling to a new level. Besides, he revealed most of the pitfalls so others won't have to suffer the agony!

 

Beautiful work my friend!

Most recent photos that I found are from 2015, apparently it was owned by Darren Morre, Torrence California, Reg. No. N5444V

 

There's also this (but I have no idea what it means) :
