    i guess that you did rip all of these prints from that russian BP site... :roll:

    after all i would have been lot easier to post link for that site @ SMC than upload all of those prints here. :roll:

    cant remember addy of that site, but all of these warfare related prints you have upladed at SMC were there too.

    anyway that russia bp source had only related warfare stuff. (weapons, ships, tanks, planes etc.)

    Oh no, no, no I got this off a different website. It's really hard to find. it would drive you crazy to find it. i just want to upload the blueprints to save the trouble of trying to find the site.

    The P-38 was one of, if not the, first machines to be series produced with a turbo.

    I think fact #1 is incorrect; the Bell P-39 Airacobra was the first fighter with a tricycle landing gear. They both entered service in 1941, however first flight dates: P-39, 4/6/38 and P-38, 1/27/39.
