Yippee!
Pss P-40 Warhawk

I just finished building my first pss plane. I started the build two months ago and worked on it during the weekends and occasionally after work. This was also my first time bagging a wing. She weighs in at 40oz.

This build was a bit of an undertaking for me but it was a lot of fun and I learned a lot. I can't wait to see how she flies.

I bought this and three other pss kits from my friend Madstickcliff. I hope to start on the next one soon.

Nice job Fred 40oz seems light for a bagged wing. Your color scheme is great too.

I guess you'll have no trouble picking out your plane among a flock of other P-40's.

Nice job!

Dang, I'm speechless. Go Fred! I have one of Marty's P 40 kits and may have to knock it out before the PSS fest. Gotta love that shark mouth.

she flies! !

Finally Maidened my p40 yesterday!!
I'm very happy on how she flew. Had way too much throw at first but got her dialed in fast. She flies like she's on rails. So happy I'm motivated to start building the next pss plane. Just need to decide which one, the aircobra or panther9.

Fun little plane

Went back out today after work and got a few more flights on the p40. Wind was just as strong as yesterday but the direction was better. I thought it flew great yesterday but today it flew 10 times better.

Thank you Marty, Bob and Cliff for getting me hooked on pss.
