P-51B Mustang (oz3567)
About this Plan
North American P-51 Mustang Fighter. Free flight rubber scale model.
Quote: "Here is a plan of Dave Stott's Airdevil Plan 16in North American P-51B Mustang in Chinese markings. Dave Stott was the co-founder of the Flying Aces Club here in the US. Dave passed away two years ago and in the US Northeast and New England, we hold a Dave Stott Memorial Event where contestants fly one of his designs from his 'Airdevil' line of model plans. As such, I'd like to make his plans available online for anyone who wants to participate or honor Dave's memory by building one of his exquisite designs. His plans were always free and published in newsletters. The P-51B is the first of his designs I am building."
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 (oz3567) 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.

I built my Mustang a few years ago from plans on Outerzone. This summer my friend Fonzi Meza came along to take pictures and I though I'd send one of them to you [more pics 005]. Thanks for all the great pictures of everybody's models.

1-If possible, try to have the plan printed as one whole sheet. I tried to do this as a 4 section poster and it was difficult to align. 2-The build is straight forward, my only recommendation is leaving all the ribs a bit longer than shown, trimming the trailing edge end as you glue them for a better fit.

* 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.
