Text from the magazine: “Fred Reese’s sport scale Mustang, in either the World War II fighter or racing configuration, is the most realistic Half-A ship published to date. In the performance category, it is virtually unsurpassed. Needless to say, the age of 1/2A RC is really upon us. Half-A racing has demonstrated the capabilities and has given the modeller the experience to get reliable performance from small engines. We can now look beyond racing to high-performance sport planes with more realistic appearances. Naturally, the P-51 with its streamlined look and perfect proportions for modelling was my first choice for a Stand-Off Scale model. I decided, initially, that the model must look right, even after the concessions to available accessories. The plans presented here are the third re-design; each time subtle changes were made to make the model look better. At this time five P-51’s have been built and are currently flying. The performance of all of the models has been outstanding. I was a little apprehensive of the first flight of my detailed military version, but I needn’t have been. It flew out of my hand easily with only a touch of aileron trim needed to level it out.
