!! UPDATED & IMPROVED !!
P-39Q Airacobra
Cobra II
This is a newly drawn plan of one of my old favorites incorporating several improvements, and making the plan easier to read. It's the 1946 Thompson Trophy race winner flown by Tex Johnston. Ideal model proportions, lightweight, and an excellent flier. Model did 4:23 in Boeing 737 plant (80 ft. ceiling) Nov. 1996. All yellow with black trim and numbers.

Mike Carroll's
'Signal Sea Fury'
Hawker Sea Fury
unlimited racer

Lots of wing area on this model because of it's clipped wings, and it's a good flier! The color scheme is early Mike Carroll - All yellow with red numbers and flame paint job down the nose, the "Signal Sea Fury" logo on the fuselage side, and NO orange drop shadows on the registration or race number.

Mike Carroll was the first to modify a Sea Fury for unlimited class air racing. His striking all-yellow racer with it's flame paint job was always a crowd favorite. In 1966 it took third in its first ever cross-country race, followed by a second place in the 1966 Reno Silver race. In 1967, it got a second in the Palm Springs-Cleveland race, followed by a first in the Illinois to Reno race. Mike Carroll died while testing his P-39 racer "Cobra III", and the Sea Fury was sold to Dr. Sherman Cooper, who renamed it "Miss Merced". The big yellow racer won the 1970 Reno Silver race, AND the 1970 California 1000 mile endurance race at Mojave. This was followed by winning the United States Cup 1000 mile endurance race in San Diego, and an amazing 3rd place in the Gold Cup race at Reno in 1971.
