    ScaleType: This (oz5611) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curtiss_P-40_Warhawk
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

Hi Steve, I built the Top Flite P-40 you show the plan for back in the mid '70s. I think there is an error on the plan. The plans show a guide for the trailing edge of the wing to be used while the wing is under construction. If built per the plans, the wing tips get wash in not wash out, at least mine did. It made for some very interesting stalls. I liked the plane as a sport flyer, it was very easy to build and it did look good in the air. Just wanted to warn people to check incidence angles before the wing is sheeted. Here's a picture of my P-40 [see more pics 004], Enya 60 and Rhom Air retracts.

This is the Top Flite Dave Platt P-40 plan blown up to 120% for a 72" wing span [more pics 005].

Hi, Enclosed are a few pictures of my TF Red Box P-40. I've added some modifications, but basically it's the stock kit [main pic, 006]. The kit was missing 1/2 of the flap trailing edge balsa so I had to build that area up, so... no flaps. Thank you for your great website!

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.


This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
