NAA P-51 B/C/D Mustang:
Ordinates interpretation, translation and development are an important part of my research work and rather essential to the development of the many part and frame components.
It would be great to be able to develop a full parts library for any of these aircraft projects in 3D CAD and recreate the original drawings. However the number of parts in any one aircraft is prohibitive to achieving this goal. I do though occasionally indulge in developing some of the part drawings; in 3D and 2D; if nothing more than a challenge to recreate something that was first designed 75 years ago!
These are some of the parts modelled for the P-51 Mustang:
