Default RE: TF P-40 Build Thread

couple of points to note from my experience on this model.

1. check and double check CG

2. as per 1.

3. drill out lightening holes in the sheet sections on rudder and elevators, it will surprise you how much weight can then be saved in the nose.

4. The wing has a real weakness where the flaps and airlrons meet, right in the little dog leg. If you get a decent wack on a wing tip the wing will break right at that point.

5. Fiberglassing is easy and gives a much nicer finish. If you llok in my TF P40 Wing rebuild thread there are afew pointers on this.

all the best and congtrats on the nuptials. Now is the time to learn to balance family and hobby - oh and work too hehe
cheers
