Post  GUS THE I.A. Sun Mar 30, 2014 3:08 pm

Here are my entries for the speed contest. The construction is nowhere near the caliber of the other planes here, but these should get me in the air. The silver one is an A-7 Corsair II that is at a museum, and it is actually trimmed in purple, and the red plane is a 1969(?) Beechcraft Bonanza, N590PM, that is a locally hangared ship. The Bonanza competed in cross-country races, some time ago, so I thought it's heritage made it eligible to compete as a racer for this. Reed Speed qualifying photos... Post em if ya got em.

Thanks for looking! (EDIT TO CORRECT "N" NUMBER.

Air Tractor 500 series.

Well, my hack of a paint job doesn't compare to many that are already posted here. Having a wife on bed rest for a month, then a healthy newborn does not allow for modeling time. I hope I get a chance to fly during the contest period.

I intend to tie the controls directly onto the bell crank, so no lead outs. Yes, the push rod is curly.

I don't know if I'm going to make it, I'm starting paint in a few minutes. I should be able to get the main colors on it, but the trim colors and mounting the motor might be tough. We haven't had painting weather for awhile.

"Rare Bear", a highly modified Grumman F8F-2 Bearcat built in 1969 by Lyle Shelton and flown to countless victories at The Reno Air Races. The Rare Bear is credited with a 528.33 mph over 3 km World Speed Record in 1989. This early 2000's version was flown by Pilot John Penney.

Mike.. A friend of mine always used to say; "Paint and Chrome.. won't get you Home".. He used to enter his 327 Corvette V8 powered Chevy Vega at car shows, against guys who had these gorgeous machines with bolted-on chrome goodies.. but their cars didn't even run! There were no pistons in the engine! They were winched in/out of their trailers and not even driven to the show. Performance is the real test of any machine.

Just taking a fried chicken break. Back to the shop for the end run. I have until one minute before 2:00 AM EDT. If it ain't done by midnight, I'll post what I've got. If it doesn't quite qualify, too bad for me. About all I have to do is cut and glue the tail feathers, Linkage, LG and paint. I can do that. bounce

Gotta fly the Yak at 10:00 in the AM.

I hate to make a man rush a otherwise enjoyable fried chicken break. Let's extend the deadline for posting photos to midnight Tuesday the 2nd so everyone who wants to can compete. Barring extreme weather video deadline will still be the 18th.  If anyone has Dukes contact info please give him a shout and let him know he's still in the running.

THE XP-40Q IS IN THE HOUSE!!                                         Reed Speed qualifying photos... Post em if ya got em. (2014) - Page 3 Wp_20102  Reed Speed qualifying photos... Post em if ya got em. (2014) - Page 3 Wp_20103  Reed Speed qualifying photos... Post em if ya got em. (2014) - Page 3 Wp_20104         AND a little history....From the P-40 website: http://www.p40warhaw...iants/P-40Q.htm



The P-40Q was an experimental project which attempted to produce a really modern fighter out of the existing P-40. The modifications were in fact so drastic that there was very little in common with earlier P-40 versions.  
Two P-40Ks (serial numbers 42-9987 and 42-45722) and one P-40N (serial number 43-24571) were extensively modified with revised cooling systems, two-stage superchargers, and structural changes which markedly altered their appearance. The project was assigned the designation XP-40Q.



The first XP-40Q was P-40K-10-CU ser no 42-9987 fitted with a new cooling system, a longer nose, and a four-bladed propeller. The radiators were moved into an under-fuselage position, with intakes between the undercarriage legs.

The most prominent XP-40Q feature, used on 42-45722 and 43-24571, was the cutting down of the rear fuselage and the addition of a bubble canopy as on the "XP-40N". Later the wingtips were clipped. The result was an aircraft which bore almost no resemblance whatsoever to its parent P-40 line. The V-1710-121 engine was fitted with water injection, resulting in a power of 1425 hp. Speed increased to 422 mph at 20,500 feet, making it the fastest of all the P-40s. An altitude of 20,000 feet could be reached in 4.8 minutes, and service ceiling was 39,000 feet. Four 0.5-inch machine guns were carried by the prototypes. Wingspan was 35 feet 3 inches (after clipping), and length was 35 feet 4 inches (2 feet longer than the P-40N).

The proposed production models of the P-40Q were to have carried either six 0.50-inch machine guns or four 20-mm cannon, but the XP-40Q was still inferior to contemporary production Mustangs and Thunderbolts, and development was therefore abandoned. Consequently, the production life of the P-40 ended with the N version.

The second XP-40Q was briefly used for postwar air racing. Registered NX300B, the second XP-40Q was an unauthorized starter in the 1947 Thompson Trophy race. It was in fourth place when it caught fire and had to drop out of the race.  GETBACK! was inspired by this being different than the p-40 itself.

Okay Folks here it is, Looks like I just squeeked under the wire.

The wheels are just some thing I pulled out of a kit as I haven't had time to finish the ones on the lathe. Also, I had some trouble with the paint I wanted to use. It wasn't very chrome and I was doubting its fuel proofness. So I resorted to covering with Monokote. I'd heard the new Monokote was really bad but the chrome REALLY STINKS to put on. Unfortunately the hobby shop did not have any chrome Ultracote. The Blue mono wasn't too bad but its still not as good as the old stuff was.

I had also ordered some graphics from Callie Graphics but they never showed up so its pretty plain jane.

Hey Cribs,

Its patterned after the 2013 version of "Czech Mate". A highly modified Yak-11 with a P&W R-2800 for Reno Racing. It came in Second to Miss Ashley at last years Reno.
