About this Plan

Baby P-51D Mustang - Profile scale model WWII fighter for control line, with .09 power.

Quote: - "There is just no getting away from the fact that a profile model is the easiest thing to put together for flying fun. If only they were more realistic! This design blends simple, functional construction, with much of the realistic detail and trim associated with the famed Mustang. The drawings are full size. Because of the step-by-step photos, the construction of this ship can be followed easily, even by the most inexperienced builder. The model is not small and can be powered by engines up to .09 displacement. So powered, this model can replace the more elaborately built-up sportsters. It is an excellent trainer for anyone learning to fly. Even with an .075, lines remain taut. Control response is good, despite the solid construction.
Should you have an .049 to .065 engine, the model is still a good choice if three important modifications are considered: First, change the fuselage profile to 1/4in sheet balsa. Second, modify the main wing to 3/16in thickness. Lastly, make the tail surfaces 3/32in thick. This lighter version with its generous wing area is worth considering with the smaller power plants. If Mono-line is used, you don't have to be choosy about the weather."

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
