  1. this video is simply ‘FANTASTIC’. I have only one word : WOW.

  2. EPIC!!! more, more more!

  3. I built a 1/5 scale P51 and all of my research said that the P-51 had one landing light in the left wheel well. this also matches manuals read and full size Mustang that I have pictures taken. Sorry this guy made one little mistake on a nice rendering.

  4. Great video, but they have the tail wheel working oppposite of the rudder.

  5. never had Packard engines . Had Allisons and eventually Rolls Royce Merlin engines.

    1. I believe Packard made the Rolls Royce Merlin engine under license from Rolls Royce, thus the Packard reference.

    2. The definitive version, the P-51D, was powered by the Packard V-1650-7, a license-built version of the two-speed, two-stage-supercharged Merlin 66

    3. They were Packard build RR engines build under license from RR.

  6. Several mistakes in the presentation. The tailwheel steering moves the wrong direction with the rudder movement, when the rudder causes a left turn, the tailwheel causes a RIGHT turn. The directional gyro is the higher instrument, and the lower instrument is the magnetic compass. The author is, apparently, not a pilot. Very good other than the 5 or 6 mistakes. The fuselage bulkheads are called “horizontal”, but they are actually vertical.

  7. Connecting rods are not right either. Merlin and other v-12’s use one forked rod and one straight rod. Otherwise you would need to offset the cylinder banks. Otherwise, great graphics.

  8. Look again- closely- pay attention to detail, yhe tail wheel DOES move correctly
    with the rudder. Dennis Miller A&P_ mech and USN mech retired
