    Hi all, I have recently found this forum while doing a search for aircraft blueprints.
    I have been interested in WW2 Aircraft for ages. I am a keen modeller and collector of reference data. Though from what I have seen so far my attempts have been meager at the least. :shock:

    I am currently cleaning and sorting 6,000+ P-40 factory drawings into a set of modelling plans (I dont need nuts and bolts :lol:). Then I plan to build a 1/16th scale model of the p-40M, RAAF Kittyhawk III.

    Thanks for the welcome gents.

    Heinz, its a huge task m8. All the drawings are only labled by roll letter and number, so far I have cleaned them all and i'm currently re-naming them with their factory drawing number and name. 4,000 to go. :eeeeek:

    Wildcat, I haven't decided yet. But, she will be RAAF PTO. :)
