Photo Gallery - ½A P-40

[Home] [Photo Gallery Home]

This 1/2A P-40 is powered by a Cox Babe Bee engine. I think the kit was manufactured by Carl Goldberg ... either CG or maybe Scientific. It was an all solid balsa kit, very easy to build and one of the better flying planes I built. It wasn't a stunter, but it was very forgiving and stable. I never did crash this one. However I later sold or traded it to someone who needed a trainer, and it was a good one. I always regretted parting with it, but I had so many 1/2 A planes I didn't miss it. The decal set always impressed me with this kit. Plus, the landing gear were mounted in the wing, rather than the typical behind-the-motor setup that most 1/2A profile jobs used.
