Once in a while I come across an airplane that catches my eye because it has potential for Cox engine power:

Aerofred: Tunder Lightning V2 (35in./88.9cm)

AeroFred Tunder Lightning 2020-033

This one is an electric sheet foamie, but could be easily modified for anything from a Sure Start to Medallion or Tee Dee. Not planning to build, but just saying. Popcorn

GG,
You must have gotten their email today. I said the same thing when I got their email this morning.

I wonder how this one would do with a quick colorcoat and polyurethane fuel proofing. If I weren't bogged down between a pile of 1/2 built kits, I would try it. I got a half sheet of 1/4" foamboard a while back. So far it has served to make a mock-up of the Guillow's Typhoon displayed several weeks back.

I guess we are all getting the same email..... Jim, I am with you in having a bunch of 1/2a stuff currently on the go, and hangar space is honestly full. So I guess I gotta get out flying trying new things to help in clearing hangar space..... Shocked

Looks like an underfed P-38 intended to be flown by ladies. Smile Smile

But it did remind me of this:

AeroFred Tunder Lightning Yippee10

P.S. The worst P-38 Lighting is still pretty wonderful.

Yup, NEW222 and Jim, I'm subscribed to AeroFred, so I got the E-mail. Choice of materials, I'd probably make it from Dollar Tree foam board, use Acrylic urethane and Rust-O-Leum rattle can, but paint in British style camo.

Nope Bob, not a lady's plane, nothing says it must be painted pinkish red. lol!

Do it George.  It sure isn't wanting for wing.  

I used Hobby Lobby's "White board" for one of mine and it turned out rather well.  White board, a couple of dowels, a little balsa and your home.  

For those that don't know Yippee was the 5000th P-38 produced.
