According to hklam's post #186 it is from a Peck Polymers plan (maybe a kit).

I noticed the username on the youtube video and recognized it as someone who posts here. A few mintues searching and voila!

Yup that's the one, thanks dosco Cheesy

Anyone have the plans for it? It looks like a simple plan to make look good and still fly Grin ( I also have some silver ESAKI tissue i need to use!)

There's many Mustang plans in the plans gallery. I haven't looked at them in detail as I'm not planning for any Mustang builds, except the Keil Kraft one looks a lot like the one I've done. Getting the fuselage formers cut from printwood was the part that took a bit of patience.

A2Z is now the owner of Peck Polymers and has the P-51 p'nut kit as a laser cut offering, and the price is reasonable.  Getting it shipped to England will be a killer tho.

In all honesty and fairness to Guillow's, the 900 series kits (ALL of them), built in STOCK form with the only mod being a better nose plug, come out quite light and fly very well - with decent rubber and prop.

Vic

I've bought much of my modelling stuff from FliteHook over the last 10 years or so, having first seen them at Old Warden. I've not dealt with nicer people, and their prices & products are pretty good too.
