looking for P51 A/B(or C) model info


       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have picked up a Top Flight giant scale P51 kit, and am going to convert it to an A, or a B/C model, and was looking for a supplier for the Canopy...a stock A/B canopy or (preferred) a "Malcome Hood" bubble type for the A/B model.

Also any good paint schemes for an RAF mustang you may have seen...(I would not rule out a Soviet paint scheme for it , but have not seen any that weren't just all green with a red star)

thanks folks....

Bill

Re: looking for P51 A/B(or C) model info

For paint schemes, google, google, google. My wife is doing a Tuskegee airmen P-51B, and I'm doing an RAF Mustang III builds this fall, and we just googled and searched till we got what we needed. a specific search, i.e. RAF Mustang III walkaround, is very effective, the plastic model guys will have tons of info, they love different. As for canopy, wow, that might be hard. We've got two sets of the P-51 B conversion kits for the .60 sized mustang, they are still avail on EBay, and elsewhere. I recommend you pick up one of those, as you can then scale up the plans and parts for the fuse, to the right size, saving some time and effort, and perhaps, if there's no providers of the canopy, get the 1/7th one 3D scanned, and get a mold made for 1/5th. Lot of work, that last part, but you can always sell some canopies and recoup!!
