Hi I have talked to Craig about his build did he stay with the 3W 75 and keleo exhaust? Also when do you plan on flying it I have one in primer and with the same setup. I bet it will sound nice in the air. Also what radio gear are you using on the controls? Thanks Donzie

NICE airplane. I can't wait to hear how it flys. I have one NIB in the garge and just ordered all the parts from Shaun. Mine will be powered by a G-62. Who made your pilot? That's about the only thing I haven't decided on yet. I hope mine looks half as good as yours. Very inspirational!

Casinovegas,
Very nice. I hope she flies well for you and gives you many enjoyable moments. There is no better looking WWII fighter aircraft than the P-40 Warhawk. She looks ALL business and hungry to boot. The P-40 has very clean lines and draws attention on the ground or in the air. I am preparing to finish my 1/5th Pica P-40 soon. I know, there are those who will say what they will about the Spitfire and the Mustang, and I agree they are awesome, but they just don't have the same effect as the P-40. I have them all, but the P-40 was always the "Old Exterminator" and the standby of our forces in the beginning of WWII. The AVG flew her into Glory and the archives of history. Good luck with her. Pleae show us some flight videos when you can.

Donzie,

Fred beat me to the punch on posting the pictures, but what the heck, it is his warbird. Fred and I both fly JR. 10X and 8103 respectively. The engine sounds great through the functional exhaust. It pulled so hard that Fred actually had divits in the back of his legs from holding airplane back. I am sure that no one would believe us, so I snapped a picture of the back of his legs. During the second engine run, he payed me back! The 3W-75I is a stump puller with the 23-11 3 blade. Good luck with yours, and feel free to contact me with any questions.

Regards

Craig

Shaun,

Thanks so much for all of your help and guidance. I can personally vouch for your customer support. Who else would answer the phone on Sunday to support your product, knowing that we did not originally buy the kit from you? I will tell you that when I look to build my next Yellow Aircraft kit, I will be contacting you first.

Thanks again for all of the help and support. Guys like you make this hobby most enjoyable

Kind regards

Craig Knaack

You have to visit Kelvin at Keleo to realy appreciate those custom exhausts.......He can make a scale exhaust for just about any plane / engine combo you want.
