Quite right, GWILLIEFOX. It's an EJC49 from 1958. You can find some posts about flying it in some of my flight reports in the Flying Discussions section of the forum whenever I fly the Yak-9. Got a few videos of me and Cribbs flying it on my Tube channel. It's my only Fox, but I'm sure it won't be my last. I like it a lot.

I had a couple of Sterling P 51s. Here's my last one; I'm on the right. 1958 Fox Stunt 35.

If I can ever find a Sterling F-51 kit at a reasonable cost, I really want one to pair with my Yak-9.

Yep, there are those standard post war haircuts. His looks like my Dad's but he wouldn't let me wear mine as long as yours. Looks like your Brylcreem let you down after all that hard flying. lol!

Rusty, if you can throw the word out there and get a AJ free flight F-51 Mustang it would be far superior. Identical to the Sterling without the heavy wood. Instructions are photo copies of the Sterling but the wood quality is very very nice. Ribs are cut not die smashed. They can be found at swap meets.

What about the Brodak F-51? Wouldn't it be light weight? Laser cut too. The leading edge would be built up though.

There is always the plans route.

Ron, it's not as durable as the Sterling or the AJ model. The Brodak version works better with a modern. 25 The Brodak or the LA. The construction is identical to the Sterling kit and about $40 less in cost. AJ was purchased by Golden State Models and then Brodak bought Golden State.
