P-51D Mustang Equipment List

Many people have found that getting information on this model is very difficult. Composite-ARF acknowledge that this kit is not to their

usual standards (from an information/instructions point of view - build wise it is still superb) and reflect this in the fantastic price.

 

I have spent quite a while trying to pull together some information for those who would like to build this aircraft but have been put off due to lack of information.

 

Listed below are parts/links that I think builders and potential purchasers of this kit will find very interesting. Please e-mail for more information if needed.

4 Blade Scale Hamilton Prop Drive Unit

 

You've seen all those fantastic Mustangs at the field but one thing has always let them down - yep, that tiddly little 2-blade prop that just looks 'wrong'!

Well, now you can have the ultimate Mustang complete with a scale working 4-blade Hamilton prop - WOW!!!!

Retracts 1

 

Wabo Main Retracts

 

These retracts have been successfully used in Europe by Mustang builders for several years now. This gear requires no modifications to the wing to fit. I feel they look particularly 'scale'

Retracts 2

 

Sierra Precision Main Retracts

 

These retracts are relatively new to the market. Coming from Sierra Precision you can be guaranteed they will be quality items. They too have be manufactured to ensure that they are a 'drop fit' into the existing wing structure. The only downside I see to them is that they are so 'shiny' - easily rectified though if necessary.

Scale Pilot

 

There is no point in producing a beautiful scale model and spoiling it with an awful pilot. German manufactured 'axels scale pilots' are just the ticket to finish off your P-51.
