    I think Tsunami with "Skip" flying it had laps in the low 500MPH. If only it was further refined who knows?

    What is the story behind these all wing length flaps/ailerons ?

    Do you think it could carry a R-2800 ?

    It seems to have had a separate flap and aileron.

    Is there a cutaway drawing of the landing arrangement gear anywhere from a F2A ?

    Is this as it was ?

    Cool Re: Brewster as an airracer ?

    Anyone have any extra R-2800s lying around in their hangar ?



    I hope you know the history of the FAF swastika ?

    I mean finns smuggled jews aut of Germany and also gave refuge for 500 that came with boats.

    Also the chief of armed forces denied after Himler asked to deport finnish jews to nazi Germany.



    Intention is to make the wing a bit like in the F8F-2.

    Twin Wasp can deliver 2500 hp: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hkQN2V8ssRo

    My intention is to make it a two seater.

    It may be a tight task, but a R-2800 with 2500 hp can handle it.
