Hello to everyone! This is my first post here. I love the P-40 (really any warbird) and am building a kit plane. I understand there are companies reproducing parts for P-40 restorations. Also, I remember the full size P-51A replica that was scratch built a couple yrs ago. Is anyone working on a full size metal P-40 replica/reproduction. Seems that as the replacement part industry expands it would be easy enough to purchase those repro parts, and built the rest? I guess cost eventually becomes the limiting factor...

Hi Boyce,

There is a person I know who was involved recently in the restoration of a P-51.  I believe he was involved in the sheet metal aspect of it.  Anyway, his name is Ron Cline and he frequents this modeling website:

www.hyperscale.com

You might want to try posting your question there as well.  I'll see if I can track down Ron's email and if successful will pass on your request.  If Ron doesn't know the answer there's a pretty good chance he knows who would!

There is a place in the US that is building P-40s from the ground up.
It's called Warhawks, Inc.

The owner has a young man in his twenties working full time on this.  Truly my dream job!
The young man's last name is Hokuf.  He has some videos on youtube under this name.  You could contact him out there.
It takes him about three years to build a new P-40.

Hi guys, new member here!  I have the remains of 2 Aleutian P40-K.  One is K-10-CU #2-10133, the other is K-15-CU #2-10270.  My real job as a street rod manufacturer and sheetmetal specialist blesses me with some pretty good equipment, including our own CNC machine centers to reproduce cast and forged original parts.  I have all the fuselage former form blocks and fixture table done, and am working from the tail forward.  My first two vertical stabs are done.  Right now, I'm looking for 30" main gear wheels and the tailwheel yoke, any leads?
