Maybe I shouldn't have commented lol just trying to help.
Anyway this has gotten out of control abit. But I have learnt alot about the Airacobra and ww2 aircraft production in general so thats good. I propose a ceasefire, I mena we are all working towards the same goal right? Preserving these beautiful aircraft no matter what they are made of lol.
:)

Btw how are you 39's coming along fiftycal?
Is airworthy the eventual goal?

Kerman my goal is to rebuild several to airworthy and several static, the only thing keeping them all from being rebuilt to fly is lack of parts like flap, lg gearboxes, seats etc, i only have enough parts for three at this stage.

ImageImageBack from vacation was trying to stay out of the cold weather the Canadians were sending our way. So, some of the Bell id's were made of stainless, aluminum, mycarta, lucite here's one made of paint P-63C adapter assy oil cooler air intake Part# 24-671-010-2 Heavy duty type of coated canvas with metal frame and snaps, brass zipper, triple stitching. The interesting thing is the hang tag is dated JUN 25 1945 the tag taped to the paper wrap is dated 7-5-45. Bob

Think you might have better luck making your own post.

Gunsight sighting head made by Bell for the P-39 (part number 15-741-287).

Would anyone have a scan of the parts manual dealing with the gunsight and it's installation?
