Yeah, I have a feeling that finding a spinner will be more of a problem than I first thought. I have put out a few feelers, but I guess I can always go with plan B and backdate it to a P-36!

I may try to see if Phil can do it. I really thought Gene could do it, but I he said that he could no longer make the tooling for it. It is for Jerry Bates' new 1/3.5 P-40B plan.

I need a 8 1/2" P-40 spinner. I tried Gene Barton, but he couldn't turn one that big. Any suggestions as to where I could have one made?

Since you already have the Fw-190A and D models in 1/4 scale, are you going to offer the Ta-152H in 1/4 scale also?

Thanks guys. Chad, how it compares with the older flat-bottom Meister designs was basically what I was getting at. I don't need a totally scale airfoil, but I don't want the awful looking flat bottom...

How accurate in outline is the Meister Scale Zero? Is it like some of the other Meister kits in that it has a flat bottom airfoil and is more standoff scale?

Yeah, it is amazing what you find in some of these arfs. Luckily, the structure in the wings is easier to look at and it looks good. The fuselage is good, just needs some beefing up here and there. I...
