Update 16/09/2019: Added kit review from RCME, September 1990, thanks to RFJ.
Quote: "Kit Review. RCME, September 1990. Gerard Feeney puts Dynaflite's P-51 Mustang through its paces.
Thanks to Irvine Engine's distribution network, the California-based Dynaflight Models' products are available through all the better stocked model shops. Among their comprehensive range lies the cute 50 in span Mustang - christened the 'Fun-51'. Such a playful nickname reflects its intended function as a model aimed at the weekend-flier who favours ease-of-operation over a high degree of scale fidelity.
Designed for .30 to .45 size engines and four function R/C, the Fun-51 is not for the beginner. A quick check of the colourful box label reinforces Dynaflight's intention of fun-scale, with practical features including a fixed undercarriage, upright engine and rubber band retained wings. The dedicated sport flier could enhance the scale appearance with the addition of some panel lines and weathering but keep the weight to a minimum..."
Update 18/10/2019: Added wing ribs file, thanks to DarinBellis.
Quote: "Hi, I ran across the wing rib patterns for this kit that I traced when I built mine about 20 years ago. The full sheet will not fit on my scanner, and I don't have the ability to 'stitch' PDF files together, so the patterns are saved to a jpg file that I stitched together. Crude, but functional. [edit: now a PDF at 300 dpi, scaled to full size] Cheers,"
Supplementary file notes
Ribs, hand traced.
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

ScaleType: This (oz10761) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.
If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.
ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_American_P-51_Mustang
Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
