The Comet P-40 was slightly smaller than the Cox version...then there was the Wen-Mac version, so ugly it was cool!

lol, it's big, it's colorful...and we need to mount the engine way out in front to get it to balance out!

Here's another P-40 you don't see often: The Tri-ang Co. Tomahawk, made in England under licence from Cox, notice the modified radiator.

Cox P-40 and Testors P-40 Empty Segue...Scientific P-40

Post  944_Jim Fri Nov 24, 2017 9:24 pm

This is from a 1960 Scientific kit. Wingspan is around 21 inches.

Original plan was to run an AP Wasp. Now I'm leaning towards first flights on a Golden Bee. The engine mount for the AP has been drilled to fit the Bee mounting pattern in case I want a longer run or more power.
