Up front apologies for no photos of the actual Swap Meet...forgot my camera AND phone...not sure what's up with that.

But the Annual Swap meet at Columbia, Illinois DID have a fair turn-out, and I acquired enough items to justify the trip...along with a jog down memory lane with a drive around Cahokia.

I got a brand new wing to replace the warped one on my old Avion P-51 Mustang.

The Cox Mustang is a pretty plane, but that scale-like (as in: tiny) wing means you need to be close to the ground when the engine quits.

My little Mustang is in pretty good shape, save for missing chunk of cowling, and a cracked/repaired canopy.

Got a FREE .020 wrench that I figure must be an old/new item because its functions are stamped into its surface.

Also got a 2 1/2 oz. wedge tank and a control line handle that may have been part of a miter saw in a previous life.   I'll probably sculpt the handle a bit on the band saw, along with adding a screw/washer lock for it's cable.

So an OK trip, with some good visiting and great chili for lunch.

What do you know about the Cox/Avion Mustang? Not much anywhere about it including on the forum.

Mine came as the other half of an ebay buy with a Cox Corsair. Must be some reason while it's molded in Avion on the wing. Something like the Mexican knock-off maybe.

It SEEMS like I asked about it way back in the day, but don't remember the responses...though I believe I got some.

That said, anybody here that would want the old, warped one for postage, I'll send it to you.
