  1. Build a couple years ago, I was unpacking this from the trip back from the Nats, and thought I'd get a couple pics before putting it back in the display case. I have many happy memories of attending airshows with my father and the dancing yellow Mustang of Bob Hoover was always a highly anticipated. The Cavalier Mustang is a civilian-ized version of the North American P-51 Mustang. In 1957, Trans-Florida Aviation in Sarasota, Florida, (which was renamed Cavalier Aircraft Corporation in 1967) was formed with the objective of transforming the P-51 into a fast and powerful executive business airc
  2. A long and painful build, mostly self inflicted but at long last , its finished. Learnt a lot about spraying yellow, using superglue as a filler, the Airfix P-51 canopy challenge and how to mask a .5mm black stripe on a propeller (hint: use a decal unless you're me). As usual my canopy looks like its been painted by a six inch wide brush wielded by a blind troll. Pretty much lost the ol' mojo for 2 months but it seems to have nipped back chipper as ever. At some point I will replace the canopy with a one piece version from my pile of Hasegawa P-51s so you can see the beautiful Yahu IP. Build
  3. Resin2detail is to release soon a 1/32nd Cavalier Mustang conversion set for the Tamiya North American P-51D Mustang kit.

  4. When the P-51 first went to war during WWII, nobody would have thought that the last air to air combat the Mustang would see, would take place almost 30 years later, in a war between two small Central American countries. The Mustang fighting for the Salvadoran Air Force in July 1969 was quite different, it had been “upgraded” to a COIN version by Sarasota Aviation Corp. (later Cavalier Aviation Corp.), with reinforced wing spars, additional racks and capable of carrying more external ordnance, 110 gals wingtip fuel tanks, higher vertical stabilizer, new instruments, gunsight and provision for
  5. This was my first resin kit that I built last August. I've adding lighting and a few other details to complete this project. I used Automotive 2K clear lacquer for the final finish and the decals on the front wings were from a Aoshima kit of the Mad Max 2 car that I have in my stash. Enjoy the ride guys!
  6. Hi everyone, For show is this wee beasty which is part of the Mustang STGB. As usual I wanted to do something different for the GB and once I saw this I just knew I had to build it. This aircraft was build new by Cavalier Aircraft Corp in 1968 and was based off their Mustang II. Designed as a Close Air Support/Counter-Insurgency aircraft the original RR Merlin was replaced with a RR Dart 510 turboprop. Despite the radically improved performance and payload increase no sales were made. In 1970 the prototype was sold to Piper which spawned the Piper PA-48 Enforcer. The basis for this is Tami
