Hi everyone,

This is my P-51 Mustang Racing MOC. It is made out of 401 official LEGO pieces. 

Blue Bull is 28.7 centimeters long (11.3 inches), its wingspan is 30.7 centimeters (12.1 inches), it weighs 263 grams (9.3 ounces) and its top speed is just over 400 km/h (over 250 mph)! A single pilot can sit in the comfortable cockpit and take control of the plane any time. 
 
Although Blue Bull has an aerodynamic design, its mainframe’s strength is not compromised! The model is designed with agility, durability and playability in mind, so in case of an accident, the plane is sturdy enough to withstand any drop from the height of up to 30 centimeters (12 inches), without any part breaking off. The model can be easily and carelessly swooshed by holding any part – main body, nose, wings, tail or even the propeller.
 
Plane’s nose, wings and tail are connected at a slight angle. Sideways and top-down building techniques are implemented to achieve the appropriate design of the nose and tail. Nose has a smooth narrowing shape towards the propeller, while tail also narrows towards the endpoint. Main wings also have a slanted design – rear line of the main wings is angled in two points, contributing to the overall appealing shape and leaving enough room for the front landing gear. Front landing gear can be deployed or retracted, but rear landing gear is fixed.
 
If you like the plane and would like to see more photos, visit my Flickr album. And if you especially like the model, consider supporting it on Ideas, under a title "Blue Bull"!

Thank you for the support! Oh how I would've liked it to make the wings dihedral. It is even possible at this scale, but it would greatly compromise the overall structural stability of the model. I was intending to submit the MOC into Ideas, so it was of paramount importance to keep it sturdy.

For an Ideas, sturdy more important than dihedral wings :)

To either buy this as an Ideas and then build, or build it w/o ideas, that is on the wishlist. Or even both!

Hopefully someday.

Have you tried to promote this on different forums, facebooks, instagrams, twitters etc that feature modified P-51's and air racing?

Maybe some of these has any of the things mentioned above? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_American_P-51_Mustang#Scale_replicas

I checked, most of the mustang replica pages seem to be, gone?

For air racing, maybe https://airrace.org/ ?
