Depends if if you want landing gear on, or belly landing. The T-28 gives you the option. The P-51 is a belly lander, which works for all grass fields.
The T-28 is a tricycle landing gear, which is pretty forgiving compared to a tail dragger, which if you modded your P-51 to have gear, it would be a tail dragger. These will flip over onto the nose much easier than a tricycle landing gear.
If hand launching and belly landing is ok, the mustang will be easier to land and would be a great choice.
I believe the consensus is that the T-28 is easier to fly however. But both are exceptional flyers in general.
