P-51 Mustang Parts Set by Dave PlattRef: dp-p51pk
Even if you've made a P-51 before we're sure you'll like the larger, more powerful, more accurate and more realistic version from Dave Platt much better. At last, this really is a P-51, right down to its gulled leading edge and the laminar-flow airfoil. Our claim of best accuracy has been proven in competition (highest Scale Masters static 1982).
Building is simple and straightforward, requiring about 150 hours to complete the model. No, it isn't a quickie or an ARF but if you like to build your own models, this is the definitive P-51 worth your time.
