Thank you, Mark!
If it  turns out to be "photographable" I will do that.
I plan to do a "What if", that will be  a "One and Only".
Thanks and have a great week!

Thanks, Mark!
I did receive it, and it looks good in the box! I am no expert, but the quality looks very good.
As to what as some have said - that the nose is too pointy and the cowling is the wrong shape - I don't have that knowledge. I still have not seen any reviews.
I am just going to have fun with the build (as Floyd Werner  wisely advises!)
Happy New Year to All!
Cheers,
Bill

Thanks!
I just bought the Trumpeter P-40F, in spite of a lot of bad comments on different sites. I might be sorry, but I didn't want to do the conversion, even if I could find one.
My aim is to do a "well-worn"  desert P-40, with a yellow surround insignias and American flags on the fuselage and wings.
Thanks again and Merry Christmas to you and yours!
Cheers,
Bill

Thanks, Vince_M! I really appreciate your reply!
I have previously built Nicky Barr's aircraft (what a hero!)
Do you know if there were any P-40Es in US markings?
Thanks again, and Cheers!

Hello!
I know most P-40s in North Africa during 1942-1943 were "F"s, but were there any "E"s assigned there?
Thanks, and Cheers!

Hi Mark,
Thank you so much for the reply!!
Yep, that was my post on Hyperscale. Yours is the first to mention the "long-tail", and I am so glad for your answer! Long-tail it will be! I was going to make a mistake and make it a "short", based on it might have been an early model leftover from "Torch".
I will update my post there to mention Carl Molesworth - hopefully he will see it.
I did have a response saying the "Jokers" had a question mark on the vertical stab.
Thanks again, and Cheers to you and yours!

Good Morning!
I am going to be building Phil Cochran's P-40 that was used in the "Joker Squadron" in Tunisia, late in 1942.
I believe it was an "F". I don't know if it was a short-tailed or long-tailed, and I don't know of its markings. I think it was the one that he made a carrier take-off in - Royal Navy "Archer"?
Any info you could provide would be greatly appreciated!
Cheers,
Bill
