I saw that, if it had a canopy you might have had competition.  I bought mine in similar condition but it had no tail.

J’ai vu que, s’il y avait un auvent, vous auriez peut-être eu de la concurrence.  J’ai acheté le mien dans un état similaire mais il n’avait pas de queue.

I have been looking for block style NAVY & MARINE stickers for months and they are not to be had.  Levent is your best option.  Best size for most plastic model planes is about 3/4 to 1" high.

I only need two NAVY in black
Can you print letter 1" high X 3/4 " wide all in one sticker ?

For other planes I have, I'll look if I need something.

Are you sure about size ? They are very big for Cox airplanes. The smallest star at 40 mm = 1. 5/8 inches
On my P-40 they are 35 mm

Hello, I am cleaning the plane.
How to disassemble the engine and the cowling?  I don't see how.

It seems to be held by the kind of spring on the shaft of the propeller.

Thank you for calling me

Solved: The yellow cowling was only fastened around the fuselage. There was so much "crap" that I couldn't see the fasteners and even after I had them on it was still stuck by the "crap".

Glad to see you got the cowling off, simple.

But the starter, forget it. your not going to "fix" it.  The inner part is sealed, crimped around the edges.  If you attempt to disassemble it your going to ruin it.  Better a long soak in Berrymans. The only way to avoid castor buildup in these starters is to flush them out after every run with Remoil then flip until your fingers hurt then blow out with compressed air.  Unfortunately nobody ever did that back then so we are stuck with a bunch of gooed up starters.

For the curious.  It's a mess in there.

If your engine/starter is stuck. Soak it in Berrymans or do an anti freeze boil. attach a metal propeller and heat, rock gently back and forth. Hopefully it will free up. If not, use Remoil around the starter interface and engines ports. Rock some more, Berrymans, heat, Remoil your only answer plus a lot of careful labor.

Thank's for the very good hints.
Engine is stuck. Is it the starter or the piston/ cylinder or both ? I'll have to check

Berrymans; this one ?

Apply heat with a heat gun, carefully rock back and forth, apply Remoil or any light oil to the engines ports and slot between the starter, more heat, more rocking. It will loosen up.
