Brian Taylor’s two-sheet P-51D Mustang plan builds into a 1:6.4 scale, 69” wingspan replica of this classic American fighter of WWII. The model is of conventional all-wood construction, but moulded accessories are available, along with a Laser Cut & Additional Wood Packs. The Mustang is designed to be powered by two-stroke or four-stroke engines, but experienced modellers should be able to convert it to electric power (details not supplied) It is not suitable for beginners, either to plan building or model flying.
Part of the Brian Taylor Scale Plans collection, this model requires 6-channels and offers ample moulded accessories for this F4C class WWII American scale warbird, which came 3rd in the 1987 British Nationals. A very popular choice.

The full size: The P-51D Mustang had the range and performance to operate deep into enemy territory, and was available in such large numbers that it helped achieve air supremacy over Germany, even when faced with the Luftwaffe’s new jet and rocket fighters. The definitive version, the P-51D, was powered by the Packard V-1650-7, a license-built version of the Rolls-Royce Merlin 66 two-stage two-speed supercharged engine, and was armed with six .50 caliber (12.7 mm) M2/AN Browning machine guns.
What’s in a Laser or CNC Cut Wood Pack? – A CNC or laser cut wood pack contains most, if not all, of the intricately shaped parts shown on the plan, which would be difficult or time-consuming to cut out by hand. It does not contain any sheet or strip wood, which you will need to buy separately. Alternatively, you can purchase an Additional Wood Pack, if available. Our Laser or CNC Cut Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply and lite ply and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model, such as hardwoods, metals and GRP sheets.
