When first viewed the Smilin Jack looked great and the sound was an added bonus. At first. Grin

Here is a fictional aircraft from the 1940's called
"Smilin Jack"

Ive always wanted to build the airplane because of the look and colors.

Here are the plans as redrawn by Tom and some 1943 movies serials and what else that I could find.

Enjoy!

Tom, has a new plan for the
CURTISS XP-40.
Look at Skypilots first post in the dime scale section titled "Pseudo_Dime_Scale_XP-40"

alf has contributed some 3 views that really show the aircraft in detail.

I could not find much in the way of photos, Wikipedia article, or videos on the FANG so if you have anything please post it here

Bob -I could not find much on the Fang other than the military photos that abound on the net but did find one vague reference to the "Red Menace" but only in writing. Looking to Google for Red Menace brings way more than I ever wanted to know about those references and will keep looking for race plane photos and write ups. Maybe Skydiamonds has something. I'll check there, I need to catch up with him.
Mike


Mike, that is usually my case. I find more than I wish to know about things that I did not even wanted to know were out there. Shocked

I noticed that the
FANG
has some silver showing.
