    The first step was to find a real plane to serve as a basis for the conversion. This Batplane combined elements common to racing and war planes from the late thirties. I considered the early model P-51 Mustangs, the Mig-3, even the Italian Macchi 202, but finally settled on the Curtis P-40 as the best candidate. The design was from the right period and it already had a number of features needed for this Batplane, such as the long pointed nose and the shape of the canopy framing.
