About this Plan

P-51D Mustang - Sport scale / pattern model for .60 power.

Quote: - "I decided to go ahead and design a P-51D of my own. As a source, I obtained the Morgan P-51 book which has a set of factory three-views in it with body cross-sections ...in addition, at our local airport a privately owned P-51D was available so that I was able to compare my own plans and the real aircraft ...I cheated just slightly in the design of the wing as it was lengthened approximately 2 inches on each panel and one inch chord added to the wing ...in addition, for model flying, one needs a slightly larger elevator than is true ...other than these two slight deviations in the basic P-51 design, there have been no variations from scale in this model. I am sure that these deviations are smaller than those typically encountered in the usual scale event, let alone in the multi-stunt event."

Update 08/11/2014: Replaced this plan with a clearer scan, thanks to MJB.

Quote: - "Hi Steve; Attached are 2 files for Frank Baker's P-51D from RCM. I scanned these from original full size prints I have owned for about 30 years, and stitched them together as best as I could using the Hogal method. This should be an improvement over the current plans in your file. Best Regards from Canada."

Update 03/07/2017: added missing pages to article, thanks to RFJ.

* 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.
