old photos/scans of C/L planes

Post  Mark Boesen on Wed Feb 20, 2013 9:09 pm

I was digging thru some old pics tonight for the wife and found a couple scan worthy...

I was talking to Rusty 'bout a S.C. Gamecocks plane, here's my 'Huskers Banshee...crap, it that a Fox on the nose of that?


My original design XP-51, at one point Brodak agreed to kit it along with Larry Cunningham's Mo'Best, never happened.

Nice planes, Mark. Not sure why Brodak decided not to model your plane. It's got a sufficiently thick wing section and with flaps seems like it would be a really nice stunter. Plus, it is the earlier P-51 version similar to the "A", which I prefer over the later bubble canopy ones.

Mark, is that a Midwest P-63 in the foreground? It certainly looks that way. Ken

HEY CHRIS!!!!

Hi Ken, yep, good eye! If i recall correctly it was a late Testors .40 powered ship built by Art Johnson, long time AMA midwest contest director.

Brodak finally passed on the idea as he already had a P-51. Later he did want to use the built up profile concept for an ARF p-40, but i think the fuselage ended up being used was the conventional solid type. The Mo'Best was the epitome of profile design, using a hollow warren truss type construction and a big fat wing, the XP-51 was a slightly smaller version designed around a small Mo'Best wing and a  FP .40-LA .46

I think Brodak was probably correct changing his mind as the market would of been pretty limited for a high tech profile, when you could build a full body for a little more money and a little more time.

I'm sorry just to clarify, the yellow and blue mo' best isn't mine, I posted it to show what it looked liked. I built/designed the XP-51 using a slightly smaller Mo'best wing.
