Curtiss P-40e model airplane plan

Curtiss P-40e

Bell Model Aircraft's Curtiss P-40e

FF Rubber powered aircraft. This plan is for the experienced hand craft builder. Everything save the canopy and a couple plastic parts are made from scratch. Directions are handwritten in English.

This plan would make a beautiful scale model for your collection. Flying is very optional depending on crafting skills. This plane would truly best be suited for display.

Video and references to similar Guillows rubber powered FF 16.5 inch kit.

This is another very popular plane to build. For pilots I would suggest larger RC models of the same plane.

Member Profile for CoMIYC69


Love building and flying. I've always flown on private property and only been involved with clubs twice. I live in southern Ontario Canada near Niagara Falls. I build at least one plane a year. I am fairly new to 3D helicopters.

Radio-Control Airplane Scale Outdoor Various-Wood-Types


My name is Donnie and I've been flying planes, helicopters, racing cars and launching rockets since 1970 when I got my first U-control plane from Carl Goldberg models. I finally got my first RC in 1983 a Cessna 182 kit with four channels. My favorite planes are 3D of every sort of aircraft. Anything capable of punching holes in the sky. IRL I work with programming and I use the skills I have to build my own designs and plans. Thank you for the donations.

About the plan source:

You should verify if the source file has the quality for the type of construction you intend to do, we will print the file without any kind of enhancement or scaling. To know if the file is good please download it and open it on a pdf viewer like Adobe pdf viewer and set the view level or zoom level to 100% or 1:1 or full scale or actual size, depending on which version or pdf viewer you are using. Also, using the measuring tool make sure all the parts fit together and have the correct size.

Plans Scaling:

We can scale the Curtiss P-40e or any other PDF plan for you. But please keep in mind that if this plan is not vector, if you enlarge it too much the quality will be degraded.
