DPC Models/AeroWerkes Scientific P-40 Red Tiger Reproduction

Post  944_Jim on Tue Jan 09, 2018 9:04 pm

I'll let the pictures speak for themselves...the kit sharing the delivery box is the Scientific Mitsubishi DPC Reproduction. To say I'm pleased would be an understatement. The build starts soon, and will be featured here:

I like the laser etching that marks where the wingtip braces go, and where the landing gear wire attaches to the landing gear plate. Also note the lasercut plywood wheels. I like that they don't melt like plastic ones when the retaining washers are soldered on.
The parts sheet includes a full size wing pattern to build over (well, two halves...better than the oil and flip way of days gone by).
The "decals" are reprints on sticker paper. We'll see how they stick and clear over with dope. Look along the left edge of the last picture...you can barely see the clear turtledeck.

Nice laser cutting

DPC Models laser-cutting is really quite thorough. I had all this cut out using a scalpel in about 10 minutes:

A wing develops from sticks

Post  944_Jim on Fri Jan 12, 2018 5:21 pm

I scabbed the trailing edges together, and made a scarf joint to connect the two leading edge pieces into one long one. Then they got notched, pinned down, and ribs glued in. The fuselage was 5 minutes this morning...everything is getting double-glued for durability.

I think I'd like to build one of these P-40s. Are they now marketing this kit?

Yes he is! His contact info is listed on his website.

http://dpcmodels.homestead.com

Tell him you want the Scientific Red Tiger.

He also has a few other box fuse, built up wing models. He has a Dauntless bomber and a Mitsubishi Zero listed. Check out the Hellcat in 1/2A on StuntHanger.
https://stunthanger.com/smf/12-a-building/dpc-scientific-hellcat-ok-cub-049r/

You may want to look at the thread from a few weeks back:

https://www.coxengineforum.com/t11422-sold-walt-musciano-scientific-red-tiger-p-40-kit?highlight=Red+Tiger

This kit has just been done, so it isn't listed yet. You may want to wait until I finish the kit...mine is the first one off the laser-cutting and vac molding machine.

I have No Financial Interest.

Cool. Thank you. I'll follow your thread...still have an intense interest in these little planes 50 years after first building them.

Wing basically done. Fuselage close to done.

Post  944_Jim on Sat Jan 13, 2018 6:26 pm

Still have to complete tail group. Stab and elevator will be sewn.
Bellcrank/landing gear plate needs to be completed and installed in wing.
Plastics need final fitment.
Paper/Paint will be last, of course.
