All New Version of the Classic!
The P-51 D Mustang is one of the most famous fighter planes ever built. One of the best, too. CARF Models has dedicated a lot of time and research towards building a beautiful scale replica of this classic World War II fighter. Unbelievably, since 1996 the CARF Models P-51 is in production. A natural evolution of the kit has brought a lot of improvements for the benefit of the modeler, and now, after almost a thousand planes made, it is still not lacking interest. Now, after having stunned the warbird scene with our F4U-1D Corsair, produced in the newest CARF technology, we had no other choice than giving our old faithful P-51 the facelift she deserves.
The P-51 is made all composite, has all surface details molded in, and all composite parts are silver colored. The outer skin looks like the original aluminum, as the initial plug for the plane was covered with fully detailed aluminum sheets. The plane is one of the most scale warbirds available today.
For easy transport are the wings and stabs detachable. The long cut out cowling mounts over engine, fuel tank and most RC equipment for easy access and maintenance.
“That’s nothing new!”, we hear you say. You’re right, but here come all the improvements of the new state-of-the-art composite kit:
•All vacuum sandwich fuselage for lighter, stiffer construction and easier maintenance of the center of gravity, even with a very light weight engine
•Totally redesigned hinging of all control surfaces with phenolic hinge posts and removable steel pins, all control surfaces installed and working
•Improved fit of the composite parts due to upgraded production molds
•Modified gear mount structure in wing and fuselage to accept the Sierra main and tail gear, especially designed for the CARF P-51
•Separately molded gear doors for warp and twist free fit into molded recesses in the wing
•Wing mount and stab mount now pre-installed and aligned This makes the kit very complete and represents a huge step in terms of prefabrication, to make the build process easier and more enjoyable for you.
The kit includes all hardware such as control horns, wing and stab tubes, linkages, bolts, screws and nuts. Most of the earlier vacuum formed parts are replaced by hand laminated glass layups. A P-51 is always a great flyer. But the CARF Models P-51 Mustang is one of the best, that’s for sure.
The light weight construction together with the aerodynamic design of airfoils makes the CARF Models P-51 a real joy to fly. Take Offs and Landings are easy, and the flying speed is very scale.
The P-51 is designed to accept engines from 50 to 85 cc. This means that even the investment in a suitable engine is really not that high.
The CARF Models P-51 Mustang is “THE” Warbird, if you consider something very special, thus legendary and famous. The economical kit price should make your mind up…get in line for one of the new ones now!
