Top Flite P-51 Mustang

I have just finished a T.F. P-51 B version the 60 size kit not ARF. I
have put a Super Tigre 75 on it and it sure looks small with the
required 4" Spinner. Is the ST 75 enough engine for this bird or
should I consider my Webra 120? The 12 x 8 prop on the st sure is
small.

You'll find that most flying will be less than full throttle.

I have an OS-91FX in mine with a J'Tec in-cowl, which needless to say is a vary tight fit. It also goes like white lightning. Bit excessive, I must say. The .75 will probably be just right. Beautiful flier and looker. I love it.

Mine has a Saito 100 4stk APC 14x8 and goes like snot. The .75 ST 2stk should be as good or better with a 14x8. I think the 1.20 would be overkill unless you want to hover.

How many construction hours do you fellows figure are in this model? I have one waiting in the wings in my shop.

In short - lots.
The Top-Flite scale look has always had a building hour price tag attached to it.
I still think the many hours that go into a Top-Flite model is worth it - many others don't. The P-51 and the Corsair that I've built are both glassed and have Century retracts in them. They are both beautiful airplanes, and fly very well.
I've been eyeing the Sea Fury and FW190 for a while, maybe in the near future ...

I posted a photo of a Sea Fury in alt.binaries.pictures.radio.control.models One of our club members built it. It's a pretty cool looking plane.
