I am currently building an F4B2 Boing at quarter scale from a set of drawings bought secondhand from an advert in RCME magazine.They are designed drawn and prototyped built by Bob Morse.Plans distributed by accountimg/clerical service.3351 pruneridge ave ,Santa Clara.Ca.95051. and dated 1980.I am in seventh heaven every moment of the time I spend on the project.I am using all the materials reccomended but have changed the control system for aileron and elevator/rudder.The engine I have chosen is a DLA 56 two stroke petrol (gas) which is a bit more powerfull than that used in prototype.If anyone has pictures of gun and cockpit layouts let me know.I see this aircraft as Americas Spitfire Circa 1931...Fabulous.

Bill Allen (Allen Airways) is building (restoring) an F4B-2 and intends to have it painted in the colors of an aircraft my Great Uncle, Fred Trapnell, flew in San Diego early in his career.

Need wing drawings for the 80% scale boeing F4B-2 designed by Alan Jarvis who has since passed away or find the location of the airplane that he built.

Thank you

Does anyone know what happened to the F4B-2 that used to be in the Tallmantz Air Museum at John Wayne (Orange County) Airport? After Paul Mantz was killed flying for the film "Flight of the Phoenix," his sister operated the museum for awhile, but eventually it was closed and someone said that airplane went to a museum in Florida. It was painted with the "Felix-the-Cat" emblem, and I know it was a -2 because it had the square rudder, as opposed to the -4, which has a rounded-shape rudder, like the one at Chino Air Museum.
