I saw that to. Incredible, Especially being used and drilled muffler, etc. If a person is not in a hurry, wait and 'troll' for your needs.

Small progress. I added the wing fillets and now have the engine fitted with the muffler installed..I hate cutting out that much of the nose but it must be done.

At least you won't have to worry if the engine is getting enough air for cooling !

Looks great, Turbo! Cutaways for engine fit are more than acceptable for a model this size, and you've managed to preserve the overall nose profile. Well done.

Still plodding along..I decided to install the wing servo bays. And just couldn't live with open bays on the bottom of the wing. It had almost no torsional rigidity. I know the covering would have helped but I like this better..

Been hunting around for P-39s tonight and ran across "Global Quality Kits" 40.5" W.S. P-39 by Bob McVickar .10 to .15 2 cycle on freercplans.com. Shows diherdal at 1" each wingtip as a note of interest. Looks like the same plane. Sorry if this was mentioned already.

I've been lurking P-39s again!
