P-51 Strega [modified racing P-51]

Post by ToxicSkylinesMH10 » Tue Jun 28, 2011 2:15 am

Hey guys, it Toxic here :)

I have a new request for a plane model for me to paint.

What I am requesting here is the model for the P-51 "Strega" Racing plane.

So why do I have to ask? Are there other P-51s out there? Yes, there are, but this is a modified version, which means that the body of it is slightly different.

This plane has been around my life since I was a kid, a good friend of mine is part of the assembly team and he is one of the lead mechanics. Ive been able to sit in this plane before, and let me just say, it is a tight fit in there :D

From what I know, this is one of the fastest P-51s in the world.

So if you make it, you don't have to paint it, unless its just too much fun for you :D
but basically what I'm asking for, is to maybe get a P-51 and make it look pretty close to the actual "Strega" body.

These are two sites that kind of give you a better look at the history of the plane.

Bump :


Also, I think it would be more special now due to the recent and horrible crash at the Reno races :(
