The Bell P-39 Airacobra was one of the principal American fighter aircraft in service when the United States entered World War II. The P-39 was used with great success by the Soviet Air Force, which scored the highest number of individual kills attributed to any U.S. fighter type. Other major users of the type included the Free French, the Royal Air Force, the United States Army Air Forces, and the Italian Co-Belligerent Air Force.

Designed by Bell Aircraft, it had an innovative layout, with the engine installed in the center fuselage, behind the pilot, and driving a tractor propeller via a long shaft. It was also the first fighter fitted with a tricycle undercarriage. Although its mid-engine placement was innovative, the P-39 design was handicapped by the absence of an efficient turbo-supercharger, limiting it to low-altitude work. As such it was rejected by the RAF for use over western Europe and passed over to the USSR where performance at high altitude was less important.

Together with the derivative P-63 Kingcobra, the P-39 was one of the most successful fixed-wing aircraft manufactured by Bell.

Another set of scale specific plans from Jerry Bates and it includes 6 large sheets of CAD drawings.

*Please note our Laser Part Kits only include the parts that are laid out on the original plans, made from balsa and plywood. Wing ribs and fuselage formers are typical parts included with these kits but the amount can vary depending on the quality of the plans. If you would like to know what you are expected to receive, we recommend ordering the plans before making a decision on your kit. The majority of our kits don’t include the plans unless specifically stated. Laser Parts Kits will also require additional materials not supplied by LCKA. Some of these items are sheeting, spars, stringers, hardwood blocks, cowls, canopies, electronics and engine. If there is something else you’re not too sure of, please contact us before purchase.
