Looking for the best in blueprints to create the most accurate 1:6 scale rendition of a P-40E.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.  I know that Top Flight has an eligant aircraft in the scale I am looking to build, but it doesn't do the job I want to do.  I am building a plane that not only looks right, but feels right.  My intended matierials are 18g steel for framing, aluminum sheeting for skin, and fiberglass rudder/flaps.  If everything works out the way I want, I should come into around 10-12lbs.  Avg. for this scale is around 8-10lbs.  The right engine-prop combo will offset the difference.  I am open to suggestion on any aspect as I am still in design phase.  Again, thank you for any information.
