Its raining in Southern California today so I took the day to build this carrier for my giant P-40. I wanted the plane to sit as low as possible so it would fit in my truck bed with the cover closed.

I need a set of the plastic wheel covers that screw onto the factory wheels that are supplied with the Top Flite giant scale P-40. Tower doesn't list a part number so I was wondering if anybody had a spare set?

Thanks in advance .

I found that those covers break very easily so I made new ones out of thin aluminum

I have one with a DA 60 and all servos are JR 8411's. They work great. Not sure if you can still get those, but anything of equal strength would be fine. I have had good luck out of Savox digital servos lately.

Jerry Bates Plans P-40B from vicrc.com Fuselage and fiberglass parts kit.
I'm using Hi-tech HS 5645 Digital Metal Gear Servos with excellent results.

I agree 645mg's are the best for 1/6-1/4 scale warbirds. IMHO you don't need digital servos.

Digital servos are simply a preference, I think they center better and make for a better flying model. They are not something that has to be used.
