    I am looking for the technical drawings/blueprints for the tail of the P-40L so that I can begin building a technically correct tail for our museum in the Aerospace Science Engineering department at Tuskegee University. From what I have learned, the Tuskegee Airmen flew the P-40L only, no other version.

    I am looking at making this out of correct materials, rivets, etc. I have a list of the materials, standards, etc of the parts but not the blueprint drawings. Does anyone have a source for these?

    Thanks!

    Eldon, try Aircraft Manuals Blueprints Video Publications They have listed a CD of P40 blueprints. Another source is the National Air and Space Museum. They have the complete engineering package for the P40 on microfilm. The reason I know this is because one of my clients is restoring to airworthy status a P40M and they have a stack of microfilm reels for the P40 in their shop.

    Hope this helps.

    You can also find something here www.p40warhawk.com.
    The quality is not great, but might help a little.
