Short Feature Article

“Cobra!” P-39 raceplane flown by Jack Woolams
A note from Geoff…
This is a very different project and one I am so pleased to bring you all courtesy of Alan Rowley who kindly sent me the accompanying images and text.
What we have this time is a short feature article where Alan takes you through the various challenges and choices he made to assemble the additions and various parts needed to make a thoroughly convincing conversion of the standard Special Hobby P-400 kit and turn it into the famous P-39 racer flown by Jack Woolams.
I love projects like this because they are almost certainly one-off builds and that makes them really interesting and creative to me and I’m sure you all as well.
So, just before I leave you with Alan’s comments (so not a full blow by blow build this time), here is a photo showing his completed build – how striking is that!? Great job Alan.
Over to you Alan…
