Hi everyone,

In an effort to get my 5 year old (and myself) more into history and aviation we came across a p 51 (his fav plane) pedal plane. I've started putting it together, but have run into some snags where i just don't understand the instructions and the sketches to maker supplied aren't real clear. 

i'm at the point to put the fuselage reinforcement on and windshield frames, but was curious to see if anyone had pictures of what things look like behind the back seat rest. i've seen other threads w/ pics, but haven't seen the specific area where i need some guidance on. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Not to rain on Rob's post, but the link didn't work. Try this one.
