Yeah, I'm in the same boat! I have been looking for a construction Manual for his Pro Hellcat, but no avail. Had this kit since 1997 (I think) and just now gonna build it... but the manual is nowhere to be found... just 2 rolled prints... am desparately trying to find one online or a scanned one. Let me know if you find a way to contact him!
Thanks!

Hi Corsaircrazy

Now I don,t know anything about the Hellcat but I did build two of the Wing P-38's (called 'em Yippee & Yuppee) great airplanes by the way. In their case there was no construction manual with the short kits. Everything was by notation on the plans.

Perhaps this was also the case with the Hellcat?

I've built one of the AT-6's, and it only had the notations on the plans, same as the HP-200. However, if any of you know where I can find a .40 sized Wing MFG engine mount I have some cash

My Dad built one for a magazine review a decade or so ago. I happen to be visiting I'll see if I can find the instructions for you. By the way I don't know why they called that a "pro" kit. NONE of the dimentions in any direction matched the scale of the other dimentions. On the good side it flew great.

I have this kit at home in the closet. I won't be home until 10-12-12. I'm pretty sure there is a manual in the box. I'll look and let you know. I plan on starting this kit next spring. currently finishing a ziroli corsair.
