Turned out that the wingspan was just too much for the width of our river & the dock spacing near his flying service, so he sold it shortly after he bought it. I got to ride in it a couple times before he sold it. With a 104 ft wingspan, a power-to-weight of just 0.067 hp/lb, and a cruise-speed of only 125 MPH, it felt like everything was happening in slow-motion!

Yes a UMX PBY would be nice, have met a few Cat pilots, take off at 90 knots, cruise at 90 knots,
land at 90 knots, this old Cat guy once told me he trusted in God and Pratt and Whitney.

Not a warbird but the 2000mm FMS Beaver V2 has my attention. From Pilot Ryan's unboxing video it looks great.

Looks like a warbird-ish ?

That is too bad about your June Nite! I was hoping to get our Mustangs together next year. Mine is still in a bunch of pieces as I am working through the repaint and upgrades. Keep me posted on how that runway works out for you. I hope to get our club to do something similar at some point.

Come fly with us in Henryetta
An SBD Dauntless of any size would be great! Working flaps/ dive brakes a plus and of course retracts.
A Vietnam era Bronco would be nice.
And from the earlier days how about a Fokker DVII and Spad XIII

Agree with the Helldiver. Even a nice Hellcat would be welcome. A pipe dream would be the Curtis XP-55 Ascender.
I think you are spot on with the 1200mm P-40. That is the warbird HH needs to make. %80 of the rest of the stuff people talk about in these threads are pipe dreams.

I do like a Helldiver, but nobody will ever do that.... I built a couple plastic models of them as a kid and always found them cool, with that long weird canopy.. Neat lines to the plane though, I always found..

And yes, I also agree about the Hellcat - it would be a close second to the P-40 in 1200mm size.

Agreed, but PLEASE not anything later than a P-40C. After that it lost its svelte lines.

A P-40 is one plane I am missing that I would like to add. The P-38 is another one I would like to have, but the Flightline/FW one is out of my comfort zone for price and size. I would rather stick to a single engine fighter. I have been trying to pick WW2 planes that represent significant events in the war. The P-40 would cover the AVG and Pearl Harbor nicely, just not sure what scheme I would go with. I have been thinking about the FMS P-40 since it isn't all that much smaller than the 44" and 1.2m planes.

For those looking for a Hellcat, the Tower Hobbies one is remarkably well done. It doesn't have flaps or retracts, but looks good and flies really well. I have one and I really love it. Small enough to toss in the car and go, but big enough that I don't need to restrict it to calm days. Plus it comes with a 3-bladed prop.

Sacrilege.

P-40 E Or greater. Possibly the November model, with its stretched fuse.

How about the Quebec? Such a beautiful airframe, too bad they never built it!

Lol! The XP-40Q would be a horrible idea for an RC airplane!!!

Even if Horizon Hobby modeled it completely scale, everyone at the flying field would just think it was a derpy P-51.... or that you had a trainer that mildly resembled a P-51.... and then your retracts would fail because thatís just what most rotating retracts do!
