The P-51D may be the most recognisable aircraft in the world, servicing the US throughout WW II and into the Korean War. Model Tech’s P-51D reproduces the most attractive of all Mustangs, ‘the Short-Fuse Sallee’ and the .46 size model has all the feel and looks of this great fighter plane. This sport-scale model maintains the scale outline of the full-size plane but has an enhanced airfoil section that provides outstanding flight performance.
For those with only a 4 channel radio, the craft includes the equipment to make the gear fixed, with the possibility to add the retracts later on. The superb flight characteristics and strong build make this model the perfect sports plane. Dead sticks, hard landing, rough flying fields and windy weather will not worry this marvellous aircraft, it is one of the easiest and most pilot friendly .40 size ARF Mustang kits available.
“The Model Tech P-51D Mustang is an excellent flyer. Its scale outline and silver and black “invasion" stripes really stand out when it’s in the sky. The sound of the 4-stroke engine and the gear folding up into the wing also adds to the plane’s scale realism. If you enjoy watching a P-51 doing a low flyby and pulling up into a victory roll (who doesn’t?), you will want this plane.” John Reid 2003, Model Aeroplane News, May ed.
“The stall test was carried out first, just to see what sort of beast we had unleashed. Up to a safe height, back the throttle off and gradually pull the nose up with the elevator, until it stopped flying. I expected it to drop a wing and go into a spiral dive, but instead it just dropped its nose and kept flying!” Phil Niewand 2006, RCM News.
