Curious if the P-40 has a stronger wing spar design than the 980mm P-47?

Yay! It's a B!
No, the flaps aren't scale, but it's cool that they're there.

Now how about a Burma Banshee scheme?

That's a great looking plane, and I'll likely be the 2nd person to pre-order. Please tell me those landing gear struts are metal, with decorative plastic covers. Will the slow and fast versions both be available at the same time???

No worries. They look the same as my Durafly Corsair metal trunnion gear. It's metal the whole way throughout. Better than the plastic trunnion gear.

Dude! I'm stoked for this bird! 😛😛😛

And a big CHEERS to FMS!🍻🍻🍻

I was happy with the standard version with the Razorback so probably the same. Depends on the price point which I think will be the same. Then again. The HS has the flap servos installed so.........
