Default RE: NEW Top Flight P-40??? 1/5 scale

personally I can't justify $1600+ on a kit where if I apply a little time, I can get the same
end result for very little $$$ and little weight gain. don't get me wrong, I'm NOT slamming
that kit. but how many more #47 flying tigers can they possibly make?

try this on your P-40.. some weak CA hinges, some very light springs, a little creativity
and done.. functional cowl flaps. the light springs hold them open until you build a little
air speed, then they close automatically. slow down for a landing or taxing.. they open.
