P-40 stunter from AeroFlyte plans, that I retrieved from Outerzone, or Hip Pocket Aeronautics. These plans are from a kit, originally produced in Australia.

It is .15 size engine: Fox, 34" wingspan.

I deviated from the plans, slightly, by constructing mine as a profile fuselage, rather than a box. It is built-up with 1/8" sides, and 3/16" sticks and sheet inside, and 1/16" plywood doublers on the forward area. It does have maple engine bearers buried in there, too. I made the stabilizer and elevator kind of large, as it seems stunt ships trend that way. I also installed the bellcrank and lead-outs in the wing ribs, rather than have them strung across the wing's top surface.

I covered the wing with SIG Koverall and dope. The paint is some acrylic stuff for crafts, that did not apply well-it's all streaky and yucky. But, I fuel-proofed it with TopFlite LusterKote. And it's a greenish-color, like a WWII military fighter would be.

I started cutting parts for this on Jan. 27th, after a couple of days twiddling my thumbs, after completing my Fancherized Twister. The weather has been too uncooperative to go out to fly. My intention is for this plane to allow me to test-fly new maneuvers, before risking one of my big planes, and get the feel for them on this one. I will start with 52' lines. That length seemed to work well for another .15 size plane I whipped-up, a while back.P-40 Kittyhawk Stunter 100_1511P-40 Kittyhawk Stunter 100_1512

Streaky is fine for a warplane. You could put some bullet hole stickers on it too. Good idea enlarging the stab, for stunts it does help.

I have an Aeroflyte Kittyhawk partly built, like it has been for 30 years, hanging in my shed.  I'll try & get it down a get a picture- might inspire me to finish it.  Still have the box, patterns and plans.
The Australian made Aeroflyte kits were really high quality, although we had little to compare them to because there wasn't much else available except the English KeilKraft.  I built a few as a teenager and the .15 size kits like the Kittyhawk generally flew really well and were the most popular among modellers.  Most stunted well despite not having flaps.  Airplane

Mine flys well, despite having changed it to a profile fuselage. I need to do a little flight trimming, to get the feel I want from it, but it's a good one. I'd like to see yours, as all I had with this one was the plan. Good luck!

I've got its American sibling, the 33" Midwest P-40 Warhawk profile CL kit as a future build. I was planning to install an unmuffled McCoy .19 Red Head in the nose and lengthen wings two rib bays to 37.5" so it can carry the heavier engine.
