Can anyone help me with soloing like Angus Young or Joel O'Keefe (from Airbourne, very similar styles)

I know the minor pentatonic blues scale, so where can I go from here? do I need to know more scales or can I just solo like Angus on the scale that I've already got?

Play their songs? Learning them will give you the basic understanding of how they play, which licks they use and etc.
#3
what he says ^ learn the songs and the solos and you will get to see what licks they play and how they use them.
basicly that for learning any guitarists style of playing

For angus young you need to have two key characteristics; use of Pentatonic scale and cramming as many notes from the previously mentioned scale as possible into the end of a phrase/solo(creating a slurry effect) and hoping for the best.

Don't forget you also need a Gibson SG plugged into a wall of Marshalls with no effects; a schoolboy uniform and you also need to dance around the stage headbanging for 2 hours straight :-)

You got just about all you need to solo like Angus Young, I'd come up with your own style though.
