HobbyKing Composite North American P-51D MUSTANG assembly Part 2 - Fuselage
 
 Since fuselage is in one piece, there is not much to do except install servos, glue horizontal stabilizer and hinge control surfaces, but it also takes a lot of time. Of course, like on the wings, after gluing everything together, you still need to mount control horns and use supplied push rods to connect it with servo arms.

Now, after that you can install motor on provided motor mount. I had to use all spacers provided plus added some washers to set correct distance for propeller.

Suggested NTM Prop Drive 3548 1100kv which I used is worst choice possible. I only did maiden flight with that motor, and replaced it immediately, very poor quality motor which produces a lot vibrations.  

 Don't buy it, better solution is Turnigy D3548/4 1100KV which I use now and can also be found on HobbyKing. Used propeller for this setup with 60A ESC is 11x6 carbon prop. I am flying it with 2200mAh 3S battery around 4 minutes, and with 3300mAh 3S battery around 6-7 minutes.

Servos used in fuselage are HK15148B Digital Servo also available from HobbyKing. Last part is canopy, it takes some time to cut canopy on marked line, I didn't glue the canopy but used 4 self tapping screws to fix it to fuselage
