P-51 progress report


This is a gift from a few of the guys after I had knee surgery. I felt it was time to get this thing going after so long on the shelf and after getting inspired from Fermin last Saturday. This isnt a build thread just a daily progress report whilst I am on spring break

I sheeted the wings with 32cnd and 64th ply a few days ago. Today I added a big 'O' bass wood leading edge that took a big chunk of the day to sand and shape

I layed in some remnant carbon cloth I had laying around to add some weight/beef to the model as well.

It wont be a ultra heavy like some of the other guys have but I am hoping to get it up in the 50's or 60's.

Its a CSD kit. Do a search and you will find a buncha' threads on them.

These are not to popular at Parker (where you seem to fly) probably why you havnt seen them.

Looking good Tawgster. I hope all the carbon in the fuse doesn't give you radio interference problems!
