Mustang P-51 B/C and P-51 D Ordinates:
I have had a number of requests for the ordinate spreadsheets I developed for the Mustang P-51 B/C and D fuselage, cowl, cooler and air intakes, so I have decided to make them available to all; for a reasonable fee; which could save you considerable time and effort.
The ordinates are listed on 10 separate Excel workbooks with 18 spreadsheets for all known ordinates from manufacturers data. The ordinate listings are in both mm and inches with the X,Y,Z coordinates extrapolated from this data-set for ease of transferring to a suitable CAD system. The total points listed are literally thousands.
This represents a huge number of hours worked, meticulously listing each ordinate individually and then creating cad drawings to check the ordinates and derive the ordinates that are unclear on the manufacturers’ drawings.
The ordinates for the P-51D wings comprises 2 sheets; the first listing the tabulated data as per the original manufacturer drawing and the second extrapolated to compile the X,Y,Z coordinates for input into CAD.
This package could save you 100’s of manhours of data input and the price is very reasonable. For further details and or purchase send me an email to email@example.com
Update 20 Sept 2018:
Now probably the most comprehensive and complete dimensional study of the P-51 B/C and D. Updated with horizontal/vertical stabilizers, rear fuselage fillets (important to define mold lines for rear fuselage) and elevators.
Horizontal Stabiliser and Fillet Ordinates (P-51 B/C) layout:
Test surface model for the P-51D fuselage. Note the use of conic geometry to improve contour curvature.
