    Hi all @ ww2aircraft.net.

    This is the second time that I need your help!

    I am building a series of mustangs (P-51A, P-51/A-36, F-82B) in 1/48 scale.

    I am stack with F-82 wheel bays. They are open in landed F-82B's, but I do not have a clue on the internal details of the area.

    Does any one have plans or photos of this area?
    I am also interested in any detailed photos of this bird, since the available documentation is rather poor.

    Thank you all in advance,
    DIO

    Yes, I have seen that. But it has nothing on wheel wells, landing gear etc.

    I appreciate though your quick reply :)

    Not the best photo, but it does show some details on the landing gear.

    Oooooh! This is paradise on earth!!! Thank you so much! This really helps a lot.

    Do you by any chance have any other photos of such details, related to other P-82 features? Guns, Cockpits, Engines, Engine Supports etc.

    Thank you so much Wunger. :flasingsmile: :flasingsmile: :flasingsmile:

    And after the easy (!!!) wheel bays, another difficult request this time!
    P-82b is the only type that carried Merlin engines.

    So my first thought was to use the same engine mounts as in P-51D, also carrying a Merlin engine.

    How wrong I was! The P-82b engine frames do not have anything in common with P-51D Merlin engine mounts.

    So once again I am stuck. This project is so demanding in skills but in research as well.

    Any help will be more than welcomed :)

    Taking this chance I though it a good idea to post here few photos of the P-82 progress up to know:

    Once again, thank you for your hospitality :)
