P-51 MUSTANG

I built these airplanes for kids toys for some guys in church that were around 5-7. After plenty of hours of online research, I drew a pattern, cut out the plane, sanded, sanded, and sanded some more and came up with a fair shape of a plane.

Then with more research of the P-51 from World War II actual planes and paintings etc. I settled on this paint scheme based on real planes from the War. There were many options. If you have looked at them, you know what I’m talking about.

A close friend of mine actually requested this p-51 paint scheme for one of his children. All I can say is practice with a pencil and then use the paint pens. I painted the silver/gray and did the rest with pencil followed by paint pens. Look close and you will see the shark teeth. I had to do this one for his son, a blue one, and a pink one for his daughter. It was a great experience. They will take a beating also toy-wise being thrown across the yard in “make-believe” flight and dog fights according to my top notch “focus group” professionals…

My first crash for woodworking came from wooden toys (guns), my neighbor made for my brother and me.
Excellent project.
