  1. Found two images of one of the XP-51B 's wrongly labeled as regular B's on Getty images.
  2. Getty images, we all know them. If one uses a screenshotting program, like say Greenshot and one opens the image and then maximises the image (button upper right corner). One can use the screenshotying program to screenshot a pretty high res image. Works even better on a 4K screen.
  3. Ok, I have downloaded a extremely large bunch of what looks like blueprints for the Mustang (unsure what type) two folders called P-51_blue 1 and _blue 2. In these are folders marked A-Z. the header page is: "Index of drawings on microfilm", date is 1945, so I'm assuming it's for the -D. is there something similar for the Allison Mustangs?
  4. thanks again @ColFord, I have some of the stuff, but figuring out what to find where... Might actually go for the closed main doors.... as I said, I'm still chewing.
  5. Looking for the layout of the leading edge beam(?) and the transition to the engine bulkhead.
  6. @ColFord and others. Any way I can get a hold of a P-51/A parts catalog? i'm boxing my own gear wells, and have bitten of more than I.....oh well....
  7. Could the Mk.IV be the old IMC kit? It has the 'look' of a kit of that era.
  8. Most of the wire I've seen has a woven sheath around it. Found this about the R2800 .50 in https://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?/topic/74103-diameter-of-ignition-harness-on-an-r-2800/ Found something better https://ww2aircraft.net/forum/threads/bendix-magneto-and-wiring-harness-for-the-p-w-r-2800-engine-manual.38253/
  9. Oops, my bad, meant B/C. Though a lot of the existing internal structure was only modified where needed.
  10. That's the thing. XP-51B started as an Allison engined P-51 that had the Merlin mounted by North American. The version I'm working on the the final one which has pretty much the B radiator intake, but still had the high mounted wing. So it'll be a mix of A and B cockpit.
  11. Anybody have a good source for cockpit layout pics of an Allison Mustang? Specifically interested in the internal support layout. Restoration pics/site would be awesome. Afaics it mostly follows the D, as the biggest difference was the dropped wing, but the devil is in the details....
  12. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/gtm-models-ford-gt40-mark-iv--1441859 Why would you advertise a new tool with a model built like that?....
  13. Thb, the model shown in the ad shows the problem, the canopy looks off. Too narrow/too high (which makes sense, change one, and it makes the other look off)
  14. I'd say that is a good example of a parkerised finish changed by regular applications of oil/grease Just thought of something, I build cars as well, and the 60's/70's Hewland boxes sometimes had a dark finish, which shows up either green or brown under bright light (lost of colour discussion on this!) That might have been anodising though.
  15. Such a nice looking aircraft. Like a big american blonde F-16 couldn't resist the suave Rafale with his accent and sweet sweet banter...
  16. Haven't seen it anywhere else. Maybe their webpage? https://pgmaviation.org/ http://warbirdinformationexchange.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=34145&sid=ebe345d10d48bbefdf940705fc2788ee
  17. Tbh, "the regrettable aspects" are what the film is about.
  18. Old girls knee collapsed. Hope she gets well soon. Seems to be the side they did recent work on. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=pfbid02higPz1XcEn56hfM5uGTyDJg4b8Agz5KBF6pyq8Qe5Ek639C9crPWHnPXCp89pqX8l&id=1635607353331334&sfnsn=mo
  19. It has a bit of Quinjet about it too...
