One of the classic American fighter aircraft of WWII, the P-51B Is the earlier version of the P-51 and has the canopy with the turtle deck. This was originally powered with the Allison engine and later modified by the British to a Rolls Royce Merlin engine that so increased  the performance of the P-51 that it secured it’s rightful place in aviation history. The detailed plan set consists of five large sheets which clearly illustrate all structure as well as showing flap and retract installation. 


The giant scale P-51B Mustang plan set is 1/4.6 scale and consists of five large sheets that clearly illustrate all structure as well as showing installation of flaps and retracts. The P-51 Mustang plan shows the installation of Robart retracts, fixed wire gear, servos and Zenoah G-62 engine and features one piece wing.  The basic structures use conventional “modeling” tools and materials such as balsa and plywood, and the techniques are straightforward; easily accomplished by anyone with previous model building experience. There are many online building threads at www.rcuniverse.com forums and www.rcscalebuilder.com  forums for Nick’s plans. Tech support is also available via email at www.ziroliplans.com or by phone 9:00 to 5:00 Mon - Fri EST 631-467-4765. The plan includes full-size templates for all the required parts allowing you to cut a complete “kit” before you start construction. If you would like to purchase a wood kit see KIT CUTTER'S on selection bar at the top of each page.If you choose gear or an engine not shown on the plans you should have them on hand when you start construction to make any changes needed for mounting. Nick Ziroli Plans recommends covering the airframe with 1 oz fiberglass cloth and ZAP Z-poxy finishing resin and elevator and rudder with iron on cloth covering such as Solartex. Nick Ziroli Plans has building and scale accessories available for the P-51B Mustang.
