Have you ever dreamed of owning an affordable high performance scale P51 replica fighter???
The Titan T51 is a tried and true version of this iconic aircraft and this kit is ready to go.
Completed aircraft in the USA are regularly selling at or above $US 100k. Depending on the engine, avionics and options, they can go for closer to $US 150k.
Includes fully inventoried T51 base kit (currently ex factory USA at around $US 60k. Also includes over $US 6k worth of options and upgrades. Including improved landing gear struts, MATCO brakes, aluminium skins on rudder / elevator, additional wing fuel tanks for range, rivet kit, fuselage strengthening mods for the V8 engine, canopy upgrade and more...
The kit was freighted to Melbourne from USA at a cost of almost $US 10k. This is a massive saving as I am not passing these costs on. Add to the 32% exchange rate saving and this kit is barely half price compared to new.
Includes a brand new in the box LS3 V8 Chev crate engine !!! Worth $AU 11k.
Includes full set of drawings, guide documentation and manuals. Piles of youtube videos and photos on line, on line support, yammer builders group, factory advice.
Currently several builders in Victoria and a network of interested support through SAAA.
Includes internal anti corrosion paint etch primer and top coat. Worth over $500.
So all up we're talking about a package that would cost over $AU 110k new for a sacrificed price of $65k.
All you need to get this up and flying is purchase the firewall fwd kit, prop, instruments and invest the build time of around 1,200 hours and you will have the most capable P51 replica in the country.
