P-51A from TF red box kit

Why the A? Because everyone does the “D”, and anyone who also makes something else makes the “B”.

General concept is:
E-Flite Power 60;
6s 5000mAh;
retracts including tail wheel if I can work it out.

I will use the same method I employed on a previous build of an Elder Biplane – building a battery box which takes the place of the formers at the front of the fuselage, and which carries a firewall to mount the motor. The carved blocks of the cowling will be replaced with built up structures (or fibreglass) which will also form cooling ducts for the battery and ESC.

My research shows this kit is regarded as “Stand (a long way) off” scale, I will endeavour to improve it as I go, (another of my hobbies is building 1/16th plastic car kits to museum standard).

Enough palaver, let's begin...
