    You wouldn't happen to have some of the same type of material for the P-51 B would you? I have searched high and low, but good "B" model Mustang technical pics are hard to come by.

    "The World's Great Fighter Aircraft" by William Green and Gordon Swanborough has a cutaway of a P-51B with a malcom hood.

    Thanks Flyboy. I have a couple of books on order now, and if they dont have a good cutaway view in either of them I know where to look. There is only one bookstore in my town and they don't have much shelf space dedicated to aviation. Mostly picture books of jets. I think I have just about downloaded everything I can find on the net too. I've even resorted to finding Russian sites, and still I can't find much in the way of structural drawings. It seems to me that there would be much more information floating around on the web about one of the most famous warbirds ever built.

    Flyboy, great drawing of the F4U. I,ve been looking for blueprints or loftings of this aircraft without luck. Have any suggestions? Where can I get a copy of the drawing you posted here of the F4U? Cheers, Bobby

    Hey, have you checked out this site yet? Vought F4U Corsair | Aircraft Blueprint | Aviation History | Airplane Plans I just ordered three blueprints from them. I have a friend who's ordered from them before, and absolutely LOVES their product.

    Hey does anyone have a POh for an F4f corsair trainer? I could really use it in a pdf file. and anything with technical manuals as well.

    As of right now most of the corsair manuals I know of are located here. I believe there is one with reference to the night fighter corsair version. As far as a trainer version goes I believe there was no such thing. One of the reasons why it was known as the ensign eliminator. The version I think your after is the night fighter version.
