Minimaketa American fighter aircraft from II. sv. War with rubber actuator. Die-cut parts, propellers, rubber coating and volume. material. Wingspan 419 mm.
Curtiss P-40 Warhawk was not among the most powerful fighter plane II. World War II, but over battlefields of North Africa, the Mediterranean and the Pacific has done a great deal of useful work. He bravely fought opponents who can usually overcome speed or agility, famous mainly as an excellent fighter-bomber.
Kit semiscales free-flying American fighter aircraft designed for propulsion by rubber. The model is simple but classic balsa construction in Rozsyp with předseknutými wooden parts, scale accessories from vacuum-molded plastic and plastic parts drawn by injection molding. The hull is constructed right minimaketářskou technology with dividers and plenty of stringers, which allow faithfully reproduce the rounded shapes of modern machines. Built in two steps - thanks to "slit" in the vertical plane stand directly on the countertop first half of the fuselage, and then the "dolepíte" half a second. Thus it is ensured that the hull complicated shapes stand straight and symmetrical, without needing any special preparations. Given that it is a very small - even relatively simple - a model, you should already have prior experience with classical building and test-flying models powered by rubber.
Warhawk is also suitable for conversion to a miniature RC model with electric drive - although this construction plan of variants offer for experienced modelers and pilots would not be a big problem. For example, you can try to use the drive unit and onboard electronics of our Mini Bee.
Kit includes: předseknuté balsa parts, balsa wood beams, vacuum-molded parts (engine cover, canopy ...), plastic propeller shaft and head, rubber harness, wheels, steel strings on chassis and other small parts, paper coating, wet sheet decals, building plan.
Tip for building: Předseknuté parts NEVYLAMUJTE! Turn the cutting board, place it on a work surface and lightly sand the fine sandpaper (No. 220 or finer). Parts can then be easily separated; should still have some wood fibers "bound" to a cutting board, carefully separate the part of the pattern, using a sharp knife.
Treatment of rubber volume: a new eraser gently wash it in soapy water and allow to dry. Then lubricate it with castor oil (sold in pharmacies) or silicone grease for the lubrication of fishing line (you get the fishing tackle shops). After flying with the volume model, remove and store it in a sealed plastic bag. Lubricated rubber volume depends more smoothly and with less friction - gives more power and last longer. The new volume is also advisable to first fetch - for the first 2-3 years only to turn the 80-100 revolutions before it can safely shoot more.
