I’am building a 1/72 scale P 51 D in the colors of the 332 FG Red Tails Tuskegee Airmen. A question: on reference photo’s of parked aircraft, the wheelbay doors are closed and on others they are in open positions. Once I heard somebody say that it was dependent on the hydrolic system of the machine. Can anybody explain this? Should I build the parked model with open or closed wheelbay doors?

The main gear doors on the Mustang would be closed initially but over time the hydraulic system would bleed out and they will sit open..
So it depends on if you want to display it as recently landed or having sat for some time.
If you search for some video of a Mustang start up you will see the doors close back up as the hydraulic system reaches full pressure

Hi Wilky, thanks for your reply and your explanation. I sure will search for a Mustang start up video on the net and choose a display for the model.
