P-51 Heavy Fighter, (XP-51TE)

Finally! I cut my losses and pulled one of the four model craft F-82 1/48 scale kits from my stash. I figured since they aren't the best, and I got such a deal, I would satisfy my cravings. Here's a rough, rough mockup.

There was an actual P-40 prototype like this. Keep it up 👍

I've seen that photo, and where I've gotten some inspiration for this from. 

 

From what I've heard, that prototype P40 may have been just a little tinker project, or just a serious joke by the wrench turners at the field, but who knows!

Another Update! Whipped out my trusty dremel and got to cutting, scrounged around and found a trashed p61 I cut apart and began to use tidbits from. Current design looks good, I'm just a bit worried about prop clearance, you think this would be okay?

The propeller is a bit wonky in the second picture, and it would be a bit more perpindicular to the nose.

 

Excuse the mess, im also working on my restoration of an older RC plane.
