  • Features assembled and powder coated main wing spar carry through bulkhead with matched and pilot drilled wing spars. Construction lines for proper alignment are on all pre-riveted spar assemblies.
  • All parts requiring brake work beyond the capacity of simple hand tools are formed. 95% of the parts are completed at the factory (all spars, skins, bulkheads, fittings, etc.). Many parts have the rivet holes pilot drilled.
  • Tools required to build the Midget Mustang from our kit are limited to economical hand tools. Any part requiring more expensive or complicated equipment is completed at the factory. A rivet gun with accessories, clecoes, microstop countersink, hand seamer, files, hand shears or aviation snips, and a drill motor are the basic tools that are required.
  • Most of the steel parts are ready to simply paint and install. The control stick, rudder pedal, and flap handle assemblies just need to be put in place, with the gear welding option the gear assembly is reamed, powder coated, and ready to bolt on, etc.
  • The wing leading edge skins have the airfoil shape rolled into them for ease of construction and excellent flight characteristics. Slower stall speeds and nice stall breaks without a wing drop are results of proper leading edge shape. The bottom tailcone skin is also rolled to the proper shape, and all of the tail group skins are formed including all control surfaces for the airplane.
  • The ribs and bulkheads are formed and have the lightening holes cut out. (wing ribs, tail ribs, flap ribs, firewall, etc.)
  • The quick build kit reduces construction time to less than 800 hours. The prefabricated wings ensure the best flying characteristics and professional finish. The only thing left to do on the wings is install the wing tips and paint. The wet wing version gives a total fuel capacity of 35 gallons. The finished wet wings include installed capacitance probes and fuel gauge.
  • As an alternative the airframe kit is also broken down into several subkits. This eliminates a large initial investment on materials that will just have to be stored until needed.
  • Final costs for a flying Midget Mustang average about $30,000 from a standard kit and mid time engine.
