Mini P-51D Instruction Addendum

 

 

 

These are the differences between the original RA Cores P-51D Mustang kit build instructions and the Mini P-51D kit.

 

The mini kit is 6mm EPP rather than the 9mm of the original kit.

 

The flat carbon strips are 5mm rather than 7mm and the pushrods are 1.3mm rods rather than 2mm rods. The fuselage spine is 2mm CF rod instead of 3mm.

 

There is no stick motor mount in the Mini kit. The motor is mounted on a plywood firewall provided and backed by several half round pieces of 6mm EPP from the Fuselage Sheet. The motor (used in our completer) is mounted with 3 screws. When you glue the plywood disk into the fuselage, align the wires with the lower quadrant where the radio equipment will be located. This is easiest if you mount the screw in line with the notch to the bottom.

 

The initial CG should be 1 7/8” back from the leading edge of the wing
