F-51H Mustang (oz5337)
About this Plan
F-51H. Radio control scale model. Wingspan 66 in, for .35 to .60 engines.
Quote: "Here it is! The model plane that became a living legend. Sweeping a King Orange International in Miami, it electrified the crowd, flying in formation, doing 8-point rolls just 20 or 30 feet off the ground. The genius of Phil Breitling together with Sterling's unsurpassed creative craftsmanship combine to now bring you what is probably the most advanced design real model in existence today. You've heard about it, maybe you've even seen it - now YOU can fly it! Unquestionably the F-51 Mustang is the most realistic, most responsive radio control model in the air today.
This is a BIG model! A full 66 inches tip to tip, with a 50 in fuselage, of selected balsa and finest plywood throughout! And check these exceptional features! One-piece 45 in balsa sides! Custom-shaped upper and lower cow blocks, air scoop, shaped motor mounts, shaped hardwood wing spar! Giant crystal-clear canopy almost 14 in long, made of fuel-proof 1/16 thick plastic! Special landing gear clamps of hardened steel! 3/16 diameter formed landing gear, struts individually nounted! Permanently brass-bushed plywood bell cranks and horns, not just bolted on but built right in! Wing flaps operable with full house equipment! 158 different parts in the hardware package! And the largest air force decals you ever saw in any kit!
Complete step-by-step plans are a work of art, with every phase of the assembly covered by beautiful sketches and detailed instructions. Plans also show how to build the Mustang into a beautiful control-line model."

ScaleType: This (oz5337) 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.

User commentsThis model has a 66" wingspan. Also, the kit was sold by Sterling. Both of those details would help when searching for it. Thanks for posting this plan!

Hello, Just a comment. This plan, although very good and with formers, it is not the original kit plan. It would be nice if anybody out there has the kit plan, scan and post it here for us, Sterling models plans collectors.

I have one of these and can't find the plans I would love to know the CG if you have it

Outerzone has two P-51D plans, 2017 and 5213, that might be of help as a starting point. Both show a C/G location.

I am currently build an original kit and am using the original plans, however the plans are in rough shape, fading, ripped but I can take pictures of them and post if it will help someone.

It's on the plan fuselage side just at the bottom of control dash panel.

* 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.
