Is there a full fuse P-40 design that qualifies for the Classic event ?

This is the Parrot One .





These are stupid , blankety NOISEY , and irritating .


These Arnt. And you can get a hundred trying to jump a ' bow wave ' on your car . They sit on the side of the road way out in the beyond .
As the groups progress in size as you proceed , they appear to have given it some thought .
A swarm or 80+ over the hood , windshield , grill etc . Within 6 in of the vehical . at 80 in real money not cheapskate metric ones .

Maybe theres ANOTHER P-40 TOO .  :-\

Allen    I believe Matt Colan,s grandfather had a p 40 that he designed in the sixties and competed with. He had it at Brodaks a few years ago and as I recall it looked nice and flew very well.  George

The Simons  P-40 is considered by most to not be classic legal due to its 1972 publication date. Too bad. It is eligible for NOS 30 though. Walt Pyron's P-40K is classic legal. It is similar to Bob Eliot's Black Tiger but with a bubble canopy. Tom Dixon may have plans but I haven't confirmed this.  8)

Mark Gerber had a nice P-40 at the 2016 Brodak Fly-In but I'm not sure of the designer. I think he was flying it in Classic Advanced.

Not Classic , but otherwise youd have nothing to complain about .



Dunno if its that noteable , but its pretty straightforward. A bit of variation in the sanding block could adapt airfoil etc to taste .  VD~

The old Berkely kit with SIG label.   Had one and it flew fast with Fox .35 Stunt.   But still a better flying plane than the pilot.
I was always taught to respect my elders, but it keeps getting harder to find one.
