P-39 Airacobra Plans

Finally got this one done. I think this was one of Patric's faves. I have modeled it with a straight wing, but dihedral could easily be added for more scale looks.

A new feature is spec'ed in the plans, which I would like to add to all the VLF models, and that is a channel for a 1/8" x 24" dowel or 3mm x 24" CF rod. The channel is in the bottom of the KF Step Panel. This means it is between the panels for a clean appearance. This will eliminate the need for strapping tape on top of the wing. However it still should be used on the bottom. Tried to stay away from adding sticks, but the VLF models need them if they are to last.
