I don't know the history of when this model was built or who built it but it was likely built from an old Berkeley or Scientific kit and there may have been other companys producing a P-40 Flying Tiger model. The wingspan of the model is about 43". The plane has some cosmetic damage spots from past flights, all of which could be repaired with some balsa, paint and glue if desired. The model is equipped with a vintage Fox .29 stunt engine. The engine is old but starts fairly easily and runs good. The plane itself is very flyable, I have flown it myself. I have included a vintage E Z JUST control handle and a set of .015 X 58' steel lines which would be appropriate for this model.

So, if you have ever wanted to try to fly one of these old UC models or would like it just for a decoration here is a chance at a very small price. The plane, engine and control equipment is offered for $135.00. If you are looking for just a decoration or collectable I will sell the plane and engine only for $100.00.
