Yes I believe you have the right idea. A real P-51 weighs about 8,000 lbs and a 1/4 scale model flies nicely at 50 lbs....not 2,000 lbs. So if you follow that trend the smaller you go the lighter the relative wing loading must be to have similar flight qualities.

When calculating wingloading only calc the wing...not the other parts.
