Although the P-63 was not accepted for combat use by the United States Army Air Forces, it was successfully adopted by the Soviet Air Force. The production model Bell Model 33; 1725 P-63As produced in various sub-marks. P-63C Second production series differed from the P-63A by being powered by the uprated Allison V-1710-117 engine with a war emergency rating of 1,500 hp (1,120 kW) at sea level and 1,800 hp (1,340 kW) with water injection. The wingspan was reduced by 10 inches (250 mm). A total production run of 1,227 was completed P-63E Essentially similar to the P-63D with the exception of a ventral fin extension and the use of a standard “cab”-style cockpit; only 13 built. V.P.
Well I've had a idea for this GB for a little while but I have been more keen since I acquired Eduard's lovely P-39 Dual Combo pack. It was a very interesting and innovative aircraft for it's time and was really liked (the Soviets loved them) or hated. It was pretty useless above 17,000 ft but devastating at lower altitudes when in use by the Soviets. Nearly 10,000 were produced and was used by 8 different countries during and after the war. I would also like to include the P-63 Kingcobra in this build as well although very similar they didn't share any components, but it is really the ultimate expression of the P-39 design. They built 3,300 of them and they were used by 4 countries, though the majority were used by the Soviets even to the early 50's (they were even given a NATO code name "Fred") There was a Navy tail sitting prototype, Airbonita as well as a couple of swept wing prototypes as well. For me if this gets up of course i'll be building a RAAF one. ok, I'd better start a list.... 1, trickyrich - host 2, SleeperService 3, vppelt68 - co-host 4, Arniec 5, old thumber 6, Stew Dapple 7, S48 8, Knight_Flyer 9, Joss 10, zegeye 11, Ronan71 12, dazdot 13, MadNurseGaz 14, gingerbob 15, Caerbannog 16, EricP 17, franky boy 18, modelling minion 19, John Thompson 20, TEMPESTMK5 21, Basilisk 22, Avereda 23, TonyTiger66 24, Thud4444 25, rob85
