The prototype aircraft was completed and test flown. There were some issues with the landing gear, a partner in the project that was working on the gear, etc.

Now that he's retired in Idaho, he'll probably have more time to work on it. I am not aware that they have sold any P-51 kits yet.

He wasn't intending to exactly replicate a P-51D, but wanted a sport plane with the flavor of the Mustang, with better performance and a lower cost.

Some of the composite T-6 replacement parts he has for sale were taken off of molds made from my plane. Other parts had molds taken from the T-6 at the Western Museum of Flight.
