I'm getting ready to start working on the Hobbycraft YP-59 and I have a question about the intake's.Were there any ramp's inside the intake or was it open all the way to the engine's.I've seen in later models the A and B that there were ramps on the inside side's of the intake's.THANKS Mark O.

From what I seen on the YP-59 hanging at the NASM the ramps are the same as the later models. Before the kit was availible, I scratchbuilt an Airacomet and included the ramps. Email me and I'll send what little I got.
