Hi all,

 

 

For this groupbuild bought the Guillows P-40 E kit. The kit doesn't have RAF decals but I have some spare 1/24 th decals that will do the job.

 

Don't expect a fully detailed model. I will be happy if the "overall" look is good.

 

This is not the 1/16 th kit.I've done that one before. It's about 1:24 th scale. The box says 1/32 nd,but I compared it to my plastic P-40 E and this wooden one is bigger.

Note that my work at this stage is not clean.I can mess with glue,add more stringers for support as much as I like.

 

All gets covered with 1,5 mm balsasheet.

I found your work just amazing.

Looking Good there Erwin I wonder what size engine it would take to get a full wood model like yours to actually fly?I have built a couple in the past intended for flight some made it some didn't.I did have a Zero take a night flight off the roof on FIRE with a little plastic bag of gas in the pit :P .What an explosion when hit the ground on a Kamikaze dive just beautiful :)
