Those 3 views are good but not necessarily perfect. I used them but with some caution when building the XP-39. One problem is that those prototypes were being modified on a regular basis and trying to nail that down is difficult. We aren't the Smithsonian and so what ever it takes to make a nice model that likes to fly should be all that is important.

Well, on the top 3 view it doesn't show open at both ends.  More like a scoop.  My original drawing had the open at both ends but it was bigger.  So that isn't reflected in the latest edit.
A Dime Scale model doesn't show all the details but that part is left to the modeler.  I will correct that scoop tomorrow.  Happy Father's day to all! Grin Wink Cool

Sometimes things are hard to see with the limited amount of info. Note the forward slant of the leading edge inside of the gear bulge, and the air scoop on top forward of the canopy is open on both ends.


I saw that on the 3 view and wondered about it.

Here's the latest revised plan using Alfakilo's 3-views.  Let me know if you find something else I need to edit.
Everytime I post it I see something else to edit...here's #3

Sure, here's more. Note that the spinner is more pointed and that the vertical tail has a slightly different contour (most plans have it wrong).

Why not both of us! My plan is to have the XP-40 be part of my 'prototype' series in Peanut scale. I'll modify Whitman's P-40C or use a three view of the XP, haven't decided yet. Here's the side views of both along with the actual airplane for comparison.

Tom, thanks for the hard work on a popular category. If alf does not want to build this for the Dime Scale section I would be interested.

I'm still trying to get the simplistic construction of the Dime Scale plans.  BigRip has been after me for another Dime Scale and Alfakilo's interest in the XP-40 got me inspired.  I whipped out a quick plan and for most of the modeler's here it will be enough to get something built, I think.  It's never been built from so if someone builds from it and has suggestions for it, please let me know and I'll try to edit the plan...  Thanks in advance and please post you build so we can follow along.
Tom
edit:12:29a.m. 6/16/2019  I did a quick and dirty edit and here's the plan redrawn...I just noticed I left the scoop on the dorsal nose in front of the windscreen off Embarrassed Cry  I'll try to correct it later.  Time to retire for the night.
