I would love to, but I am currently working on a DH Mosquito that has taken way too long and needs to get done, and since it is winter and -5 outside, my building space is really limited. But yours looks awesome! Keep up the great work

I second that.
Yours looks awesome
Inspired me to build mine.

Pecanpatch, did you put clear on your P40.
I used Tamiya XF paint and it seem to be not that scuff/scratch resilient

I put flat clear on the decals I made, but not on the airframe...... I have not flown mine in years. But it is still healthy and looking good.....
I have been playing with ASM3X and lemon stability receivers and plan to put mine back in the air with this evolving technology. I have them on a GeoBat and a Tunnel Hull Boat/plane...... they work fabulous.
People Poo Poo on stability like "real pilots dont need no stinking stability"
But these cartoon birds are built for a look not for performance, so get all the help you can.
We also find it allows us to fly in wind conditions that would normally be a deal breaker.....
Good luck guys.

The consensus in my club is the stabilization is great for the UMX and similar size airplanes but most turn it off on larger ones. Looks like the P40 would do well with one.

None of my FBs have built a cartoon airplane. Would love to build one and get some laughs from the boys, they look so funny flying around.

Gotta finish some other projects first.
