Fake Fest P-51 D Mustang Mold Time!! Group Build


Hey gang! Yes it is that time again for a group build for the fake fest in 2018 and this is the subject for the build this year and it is a goooodie!! Brian has done some updating on this plug and it looks awesome !! This is an American icon of a warplane and one of my all time favorites and probably one of your too so when Brian starts up the build list thread get on it and get ready for some more Fun building and flying of the American P-51 D!!

I have the plug finally resting in the parting board and next session will be sealing the edges to the plug to get a nice seam line well I wil do my best anyways! You will still need to work the seam before paint just like always but I want to prime in the mold as an option when making fuses to speed the paint process for those who choose this option.
Stay tuned for updates on the mold and first fuses coming out !
Cheers

Cool this will be fun to see. I love the P-51

First ever PSS plane was a Dave’s Aircraft Works P-51, and funny thing, here it is 20 years later and I just bought a Wade Kloos Durrable Aircraft Models P-51 from Tom.

Joe, what is the wing span going to be? Will it have a straight LE or will it have the P51 D wing plan form?

Great looking canopy by the way.

Just wondering

I think Brian should answer your question Tom as he is drawing the plans.

And it may depend on Matin's CNC Bass Wood LE design? Maybe a strait cut on the foam core LE then a tapered section of Bass Wood that goes from 3/4" to 1" deep over the 3" to 4" length? Just thinking out loud.

WooHooo! Always a favorite. I hope the wing planform includes the inboard section.

But does the fuse wing saddle accommodate a flared wings? Interface of a flared LE with the fuse would be tricky, to say the least.

But that problem is in very capable hands.

I got the first seal on the seam for the mold. Second coat later to make it total flush so it makes the best seam possible.
