Red Box Top Flite P-40 Plans Help

Would anyone have a set of plans for the Red Box P-40 that would be willing to make a copy or sell the plans? I'd be willing to pay a reasonable price.

I recently purchased a well used version of the model that needs a bit of rebuilding and I need the plans in order to complete the model.

Thanks,

SandMan

David,

A PDF file would be wonderful! If you can do that I would greatly appreciate it. If that doesn't work, I'd even be willing to copy it here and return it to you.

Thanks,

SandMan

Bit of a thread bumpage but can anyone here please help?

I'm re-visiting my P40 build after about 4 years since I last touched it. I have the plans but they've suffered and I'm missing the lower right quarter (the instructional sections 10 and up).

All the plan parts are intact (just!) and in any case the model is mostly constructed, so if anyone could kindly scan me the bit I need I would be very grateful.

M thx...

I have an old Red kit box from 70's Top Flite P-40. Think all the plans are in it, but not all the balsa.
If still needing LMK. I'll look see.

Plans for the old red box kits, most of 'em anyway, are available for a nominal (hah!) fee from Top Flite (Hobbico). 20 bucks plus $7.99 s&h, and a 4-6 week wait while they send out their office copy and have it blue-line copied.

That said, I scanned my P-40 plans to a *.pdf file before I sold the kit. Can't upload 'em to an online plans site, as they're still available from the copyright owners. The plans weren't in the best shape--I need to print a set out and fill in the lines where the bugs got to them, then rescan--but they're readable and plenty good enuff to build from. Anybody needs a set, I can attach a copy to an e-mail if you PM me your e-mail address.

A couple tips which prolly have been mentioned elsewhere, but bear repeating, especially for those new to kit-builds. 1) Make an extra copy of your plans to build from, keeping the original intact for reference, among other things. 2) Copy the parts by tracing onto the back of the original plan as you pull them from the diecrush sheets; also pre-cut pieces like shaped spars, etc. Makes repair work after a crash much easier.

Cowl, if needed, is available from Fiberglas Specialties.

I still need to scan the plans, etc. for the P-47 and P-39. I've got one each NIB, and one each in serious need of...um...let's call it rebuilding.

And if anybody's got 'em, I need the plans for the F8F-2 Bearcat; got two nearly finished ones from a buddy some time back, one as per plans, and one bashed to near scale, but no useable plans. Could use a set for the red box Corsair, too, for that matter; I've got a box full of enuff pieces for at least two, and a partially built airframe, but no plans. I do have the instruction manual for the Corsair and P-47, and, I _think_, the Bearcat.
