    Finished the Monogram P-51B kit in the markings of P-51C Lucky Leaky II of 1st Lt John E Davenport from the 352nd FS 353rd FG at Raydon
    She came to greif on the 2nd of May 1945 when she belly landed.
    Thought it would make an interesting subject to use up an old kit from my stash :lol:

    Cheers

    I'm new here and am doing this exact model. Is it possible to get the propeller to spin freely? If so, how? If I assemble as directed, the prop will be stationary. I got the front wheels spinning, but would like the prop too. I've not done models since I was 13 and now I'm 30 years older. Thanks

    It is possible of course. But you have to make a new shaft and a kind of a bearing that can be a short piece of plastic pipe with a flange. Of course the way of making of the prop rotary system depends on how the kit manufacturer designed it for his model.
    If you want I can make a diagram showing the parts. But a couple of pics for the existing system ( e.g the spinner interior, prop and model nose without the prop ) would be helpful.
