Thank you

The P-38 weighs 53 pounds, I modified the motors and speed controllers. It pulls that model effortless.

Anyhow my drawing program put many different file formats out - one of them is a .dfx. I can create 2 and 3D files, as I mentioned before I will post here the progress on that project. It will just take some time. Here in the shop I have plenty heavy machinery and a plasma table, this makes it possible to build that Cletrac out of metal. Target weight is 50lbs

I'm in the same boat as you, no drawings or 3-views to find. My scale is a little larger - the model what I like to pull with (radio controlled) is a P-38M Night Fighter. This is 1:5.4 scale - close to 10ft wing span.
I like to build the MG-1 in metal for that aircraft. You have a good start on the drawings. I will post here my progress on my drawings here.

Right now I use a 1:6 scale M5 Stuart recon version - this tank ok but just ok.

and yes the model flies, the airplane not the tank <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" />
