    Terrific model of a great looking car! The epitome of 1950s sports racing machinery.

    I thought Beef was a pretty funny character. His demise is one of my favorite movie scenes. I saw the movie (over and over again) when I was in the Army. The base theater was one of the few sources of entertainment at lovely Ft. Dix, NJ.

    Here is another option for a spinning prop:

    Take a look at these. Although not necessarily specific to what you are looking for, there may be something useable. They are good products and easy to use.

    Good to know. A couple of those will probably be the only new kits that I buy this year.

    My guess is that the airframes are in short supply. At least half of all P-39s produced were given to the Soviet Union via lend/lease. Many of the types that are currently raced (P-51, F8F, Sea Fury) were built in much larger numbers or post war.

    I owned one back in the early 1970s. It was kind of a dog and broke timing chains distressingly often. My mother sold it for a pittance when I went into the Army. Oh wait, you were looking for inspiration.


    Update: The car that I owned was not a Ram Air, it had the base 400. I noticed that your kit is a Ram Air after I posted.

    Don't dismiss the P-39 Airacobra. A P-39 with an engine out of a P-63 Kingcobra won the 1st post WWII National Air Race Thompson Trophy. Although a pre WWII design, the P-39 was fast and highly maneuverable at low altitude (where most air racing takes place). The P-39 also features a unique mid-engine layout. Good P-39 kits in all of the major aircraft modeling scales are as common as dirt.
