North American P-51A Mustang model airplane plan

North American P-51A Mustang

Bell Model Aircraft Co.'s North American P-51A Mustang

Type Model: Free-Flight, Scale
Construction: Stick & Tissue
Wingspan:28 inches, low-wing, dihedral
Engine: single engine; Rubber Power
Designer: John Bell
Magazine: N/A
Plan Language: English

The P-51A served mainly as a fighter and escort in the China/Burma/India theatre (CBI). Modified versions called the F-6B, were fitted with camera equipment for recon and served in the ETO. The P-51A would see service into 1945, long after replacement models were in service. Production would be cut far short of the 1,200 ordered. As soon as the Rolls Royce Merlin modifications to the P-51 were deemed worthy, production was shifted to the new models. In all, 310 P-51As were produced by NAA

This plan by John Bell is typical of the quality products from his company. The download file contains two images; the first is the overall construction page, the second image contains two "pages" showing the templates for the model's parts. These plans enable the potential for a full-blown scale aircraft, or a "KISS" (keep it simple silly) born to fly model airplane.

About the Plans Printing Service.

About the plan source:

You should verify if the source file has the quality for the type of construction you intend to do, we will print the file without any kind of enhancement or scaling. To know if the file is good please download it and open it on a pdf viewer like Adobe pdf viewer and set the view level or zoom level to 100% or 1:1 or full scale or actual size, depending on which version or pdf viewer you are using. Also, using the measuring tool make sure all the parts fit together and have the correct size.

Plans Scaling:

We can scale the North American P-51A Mustang plan for you. But please keep in mind that if this plan is not vector, if you enlarge it too much the quality will be degraded.
To order a scaled plan please copy the plan url or ID and send us a message with the desired wingspan an any other info you may find useful.

You will receive:

  • Laser Printed plan on good quality paper or/and Tracing Paper and/or Polyester sheet, depending on what you have purchased.
  • Rolled sheets, up to 5 or 6 in the same cardboard tube.
  • Envelope, up to 3 or 4 sheets per envelope.
  • Articles and Instructions if we have them for the given plan.
  • Air Mail, economic and reliable.

About our printers:

We use professional quality laser OCÉ printers/copiers, these printers use toner, not ink so the printings will be durable and water proof.

About the different media types:

Plain Paper: Common white paper, 80 grams per square meter.
Tracing paper: Common Tracing paper, 90 grams per square meter.
Polyester: High quality polyester sheet incredibly durable, will resist cuts and glue and can be washed (I use it as sail material on my RC sailboats).


We ship from Portugal, Europe and use the reliable Portuguese mail system CTT.
CTT has delivery agreements with different entities on each country so if you´re from the US you may have your order delivered by USPS, in the UK may be Royal Mail and so on.
Orders are dispatched on the next or second business day after purchase.


We charge according to the ctt.pt postage table.


When I order something online I like to know where my stuff is so I strongly advise you to track your order. Even if you don't pay for the tracking option, for orders above 35 Euros or so I will offer you this option.
