Twee-Tween-Mustang P-821 (crazy Mustangs step 4)
« on: August 29, 2010, 07:49:35 am »
After my Crazy Mustangs Step 1 (http://www.whatifmodelers.com/index.php/topic,28245.0.html), step 2 (http://www.whatifmodelers.com/index.php/topic,28266.0.html), step 3 (http://www.whatifmodelers.com/index.php/topic,28415.0.html), here is the step 4: a twin-Mustang P-82 with a P-51 inside… (triplex fuselage, triplex tail, triplex propeller maybe intermeshing, asymmetric twin-seater). As I lack room, there will be no external wings (nor engine exhausts), this is not an airplane but a desk model.

Slowly taking shape, but a lot of work remains...

I had a hard time truncating the belly scoop of the central P-51D, without exploding the fuselage... Now it is done, and I have put putty on. The sanding remains to operate, than it will be better.

Oh yeah!  :wacko:

Are you going to add wings or keep it that way?

The last pic gives me an idea for a three-engined Mustang, which would probably look a bit like a P-38 Lightning.
Cheers,

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

Yes, that way, because I lack room on my shelves for wings and the silhouette matter is already created without true wings.

:lol: Welcome! Great! For me, the crazy Mustangs' step 6 or 7 may also be another 3-engine or not, triplex-fuselage push-pull anyway

But...What is the finality (utility) of this plane. Tell more about it..
This is not a plane to fly but a desk model to enjoy the crazy fool I am. The goal, as a Mustang family member is to compare inside a single plane the P-51D dimension with a P-82. Of course the USAF (or any other air force, or a racing billionaire) would not buy such a delirium! ;D (Maybe the propellers will not have room to rotate, I will see after sanding the P-51/wing junction)... :rolleyes: :blink: :party:

I asked you, because is similar to a long distance record plane...Like the  ROUTAN.
Thanks for your answer.

Ready to paint, and I will have also to adapt something to stand, like wheels or else.
Note the propellers are not intermeshing, by a short clearance margin.

This make me see de dimension of my own proyect and the proportionality of the structure.
Thank you very much. :thumbsup: :cheers: :bow:

The first sky paint makes the P-51 and P-82 marry each others and give birth to a single plane...
