For those of you who fondly remember the Cox .049 "Sweet Cindy" P-51 Control Line plane, thought I'd share these short little pieces of memory lane. Smile

The pilot is my good friend, AMA Hall of Famer & Vietnam Veteran Tony Naccarato Jr. who hadn't flown a Cox P-51 since 1969. Tony is current working on a film project and has 12 "Sweet Cindy" P-51s that will be used for the project. This is one of them.

Getback - Will do! I know Morgan Freeman is one of the actors in this film. Should be interesting to see a Cox .049 Mustang in a current film.

Here's a few photos, one of Tony Naccarato proudly holding Sweet Cindy and a ground image.

Great to get back to roots.
Along the lines of fishing, you can get some good stories about "What is a big fish."
Some of my best fish were barely 9" in way upstream skinny water.
Like that, "What is a good airplane?" can bring many of us back to roots - the venerable Cox lineup.
I think I am more amazed now that those little engines run and in the right hands, the planes fly.

Cheers...

Yes sir...pretty cool roots for sure. I couldn't imagine my childhood without Cox models and I believe kids today are really missing out on the joy these little glow powered models can bring to their lives. As much as I love electric powered RC models, nothing will replace the thrill of 1/2A flying....long live Small Cox Logo

(This is from '81 catalog, I think they're referring to the 'Red Baron' as new for '81, which is probably the rarest of all the P-51's made by Cox.)

Very cool Mark....thanks for posting!

My dad bought Sweet Cindy for me in 1981 and I had it until late 82. I also had the Testors P-51 at that time but it was a dog to fly. Good times! Smile

By the way, I have a mint in box Comet Snark that is one of my favorite pieces of my collection. Just love Snark missiles! Smile

lol, yep, gotta love the snark! Years ago I e-sniped a Snark on eBay that was disassembled, but the parts looked like they were all there as well as what looked like parts to an old Wen-Mac Aeromite, got lucky and ended up with two complete planes.

This is the later version, after Herkimer went back to O.K. Cub, powered by .059, reed, pull starter and glow head....pretty tall cotton! Old time 1/2a engine collector and MECA memeber John Krickel stated in one of his articles that the Snark was one of the best flying of the plastic RTF's
