Guillow's North American P-51D Mustang.
« on: April 13, 2019, 11:38:00 PM »
Well guys here is my next planker project. A North American P-51D Mustang from Guillow's. Jeff, you said you wished you had the patience to build one of these, this is one of the easiest kits to build. I probably won't start this till next Fall but we'll see. :coolguy:

Here is a few pictures:

Nice  :t2030: I tried building one when I was a kid it didn't go very well  :t2338: I didn't have the right tools back then.

Like I said Jeff, this is one of the easier one's to build, don't take a lot of tools, some pins, glue, wax paper, piece of foam board and an xacto knife. Growing up I had all of the tools because I built a lot of airplanes and even some boats. My mother would buy me all that stuff just to keep me out of trouble.  :b0201: :b0201: :b0201:

Not yet Jeff, I've been under the weather off and on but I ordered a forldable landing pad, should be here tomorrow so maybe I'll feel up to getting out then. Here is the landing pad I ordered.   :t2030:

Wings and horizontal stabilizer are built, getting ready to install them. Still have to build the vertical stabilizer. Won't be long now, my Son decided he wanted to try to build one so we ordered him a Bearcat, should be here today or tomorrow. We'll start a post for it.
