Even during the busiest times of my life I have endeavored to maintain some form of model building activity. This site has been created to help me chronicle my journey through a lifelong involvement in model aviation, which all began in Mayo, MD. There is a lot of good information and there are lot of pictures throughout the website that you will probably find useful, and might even bring back some old memories from your own days of yore.

Top Flite P-40 Warhawk C/L Kit

Philip Blattenberger with P-40 Warhawk profile C/L in Melbourne, FL, 1996 - Airplanes and Rockets

The photo to the left shows my son, Philip Blattenberger, with his P-40 Warhawk profile C/L in Melbourne, FL, in the springs of 1996. It had our standard Cox Black Widow .049 engine on it.

The image below is of my Top Flite P-40 Warhawk control line airplane kit that I bought on eBay. I have checked all the parts against the plans and everything appears to be present. The fuselage halves are molded 1/16" balsa, which minimizes the work needed to shape its compound curves.
