  1. John Burnside says:

    Being a family member of a WWII Ace, I have decided to build the Mustang that was flown during that time, The plane that I am referring to is the Shangrila, the version that I am building is the P51B. The plane is a Top Flite Golden Edition, with a conversion kit. I have been working on this for about a year, and it’s only 60% finished. Can’t wait to be able to fly it soon.
