Bell P-39 Airacobra 1941. The Bell P-39 Airacobra was one of the most important American fighters in service when the United States entered World War II. The P-39 was used by the Soviet Air Force and enabled individual Soviet pilots to collect the highest number of “kills” attributed to an American fighter flown by a pilot in conflict. Other significant users of this type included the Free French, Royal Air Force, United States Air Force, and Italian Co-warring Air Force.
Designed by Bell Aircraft, it had an innovative layout, with the engine installed in the center of the fuselage behind the pilot. The propeller was driven by a long tractor shaft. It was also the first hunter to be equipped with a tricycle undercarriage.
Doors can open and the propeller and wheels can turn. The wheels are strong and the plane can stand without a stand. Entirely made of metal by hand! Propeller is also metal and mounted on brass shaft with brass nut.
