« Part 10: Two by two sorry Part 11 of planes, trains and vehicals? series Part 12: the spitfire »

I haven’t had much time in the shop lately with working nights and my 8 year old had basketball going on for a while. I decided though to start another plane, this time I am doing a p38.

I was watching a old popular woodworking podcast on tips around the shop and one of them was making a tapered leg with the jointer. I am going to try and use that on the wing and to taper the two tail booms.

Nice project should be a cool plane.

Sweet! I’d love to get ahold of any pattern you make from the project. My little P-51 planes would look better when accompanied by some P-38s…

I use a book, it has a side front and top view. I just go off of that. You can see the book in the pic and this picture is actually putting the blanks on the book to see how close I am.
