P-40 Part 1
by Brian Cauchi
Here are some pics of the work
carried out to date. Bear in mind that the model I am using
was already built and very roughly taken apart by whoever built
it so that the lower wings have been lterally torn off from
the centre section, but we'll get over that. The seat was made
technique and I love the result and so were the rudder
pedals. The undercarriage is made from copper and aluminium
tubing. I always use thie technique. You will have a detailed,
solid undercarriage which will take the weight of the model.
The kit engine was heavily modified.
