P39 Airacobra

Peter White forwarded these photos to me from Mike Jennings in the U.S. for inclusion in Peter's Control Line Plan listing. Mike's done a nice job so I thought I'd display them here.......

This is my scratch built P-39 Bell Airacobra.  Completed it this spring (Apr 2016).
The plans are by Walt Pyron.
The good feature of this design is the engine is horizontal (similar to a profile aircraft.)
Below are photos of the Walt Pyron P-39.

Feel free to use any of these for your plans listing.
