Fly the Legend.

SW-51 Mustang

Never before has an historical aircraft been successfully recreated as a Light, Ultralight and Experimental-Kit aircraft in such detail.

A fully aerobatic high performance aircraft designed for your Ultimate Fun.

A perfect 70% replica of the legendary P-51 Mustang, the ScaleWings SW-51 is one of its kind. Feel the perfection in every detail as you look at the nearly 100,000 rivets we incorporated into all surfaces in more than 60,000 man hours. The SW-51 Mustang looks like Aluminium but is a state-of-the-art all carbon aicraft. Even the mirror shine of polished aluminum has been realized to enhance the historical impression, creating awe with every observer.
