Great choice Peter!


A personal favorite of mine, the C variant with the dorsal fin. Kind of an oddball between the B and D.


I'm building a Jerry Bates P-51B as the C, the one ill be doing has a completely yellow tail. If I recall correctly I saw you post over at Rcscalebuilder, all I could think was I can only imagine what you would do with a larger build.


Looking forward to this one!

BTW, one suggestion if I may.  I note that there are a few 1/18 scale Merlin Engine kits out there and if you could use your skill to pack one of these babies into this project, you might actually match or exceed the Spitfire.  Ok, maybe not match it, but darn close!




Second that!


Love your chosen subject, Peter!

Hello Peter,

There is a lot of work to be done!

The blueprints have many distortions need to be taken in account. They need to be verified by dimentions written on them - not an easy task!

I hope this picture will help you. I drew it using true dimentions from NAA drawings originally to convert 1/32 P-51D into B model, but the work isn't done yet.

This drawing scaled to 1/18 so you need just download full-size image.
