Thunder MustangThe Thunder Builders Group announced an agreement with Dean Holt Construction of Mount Vernon, Wash., to buy the Thunder Mustang molds and intellectual property. Production of the P51 replica kit will begin shortly. The Thunder Builders Group was formed to assure members the delivery of all the parts necessary to complete their kits after Papa 51 Ltd. ran into financial trouble in 1999. Once this goal was accomplished, the focus was to preserve the assets required to see this authentic P-51D replica go back into production. Thunder Mustangs have regularly competed at the Reno Air Races over the past 10 years. Visit www.thundermustang.com.
