P-38 THE "FORKED-TAIL DEVIL"

By LEW McFARLAND

Employing two Veco .19 RC engines and the J-Roberts control system, one of our. best designers presents a well-proved fully aerobatic semi-scale version of the great Lockheed Lightning P-38. It's strictly for fun and a dream to fly.

LENGTH 37 ¼”

TWIN .19 ENGINES

In designing my model, I simply found a set of scale P-38 plans and went to work on making the proportions capable of stunting. Conventional moments can no longer be used on a twin-engine stunter because of the weight distri­bution but, after some educated guessing, a little stretching, and some shrinking, the P-38 was on paper-and not too far from 1" to a foot scale. The chord of the wing and stabilizer was enlarged considerably, and fuselage cross-sec­tional area made smaller.

Construction could have been accom­plished in several ways. I chose a box- type construction of the fuselage, and pods with inlaid triangle strips at corners to allow rounding.
