1/4 scale P40 Warhawk

Blazing Wings

70cc twin V2
While I am waiting on my wood supplies to arrive to build the flaps, I continued working on the Elevators. One of the last items to build for the P40. There are still a few little things to make and install, but all major parts are done. Soon all will come together.

Another preview. Nothing is bolted down or glued into place. Just making again sure all parts fit where they belong. Making small modifications if required.

Canopy rails are installed. Now to mount the canopy to the rails..... Before doing that I will take care of some other minor details on the P40.
Still to do is the fabric covering of the control surfaces and to pull the clear plastic for the canopy.

I think she will be done and ready for her new owner to take over by the end of this month.

Sliding canopy is now complete. Front and back meet nice without interference.
