Excellent help on the engine mount drawing. I think I can even pull some of the component details and dimensions from here.

Any word on the cowlings?

I have sets of drawings for the E thru N models but I don't have any of the earlier
long nose variants.  Does anyone have any detail drawings for the older Tomahawks?
I am specifically looking for the cowlings and engine mounts.

Thanks for the link to US cockpits. I hadn't ever seen that one. There are some really good shots in there, even though a couple of the models were missing. It does look like the K model still used the gauge, even though there are the sticks coming out of the wing also. I guess I was misinformed or misunderstood about the newer version of the gauge with the front view. It seems like that gauge was never used on the P-40s
I ordered my gauge from Warbird Parts so it should be here in a few days. Then I'll have to figure out how to make a "modern" version of it that is flyable so I don't risk the old/rare equipment in the replica.
Thanks again for the link.

I just found a Wheel/Flap position indicator gauge for sale at "Warbird Parts . com" - see attached#1 -
After some hunting around the web, It seems that this gauge was only used in the early models. The newer AN5780 seems to have been used later. The older G.E. 8DJ4-PXAB gauge shows a silhouette of the plane from the top, while the newer AN5780 shows the plane from the front. - see attached#2 -

It also seems that the K,L,M,N models simply used a light for the extents of travel indicator with a rod that thrusts up through the wings to indicate the gear and flap extentions.

Please chime in to help me figure out which models used which gauges.
I'm working on the Replica over in the P-40s Today page and want to try to put the correct gauges in the correct versions (or replicas of the original gauges, anyway)
We will try to offer at least three versions of the Hawk:
1) Shark Nose
2) High Nose/short tail
3) High Nose/long tail

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks all.

Hey all it's SEPTEMBER again!
We haven't had any showings for several years (1995) and this year we have TWO P-40s at Reno!
John Maloney is flying Race-18, a P-40E called Sneak Attack
John-Curtiss Paul is flying Race-17, a P-40N called ParrotHead
They're both in the Bronze class and showing well.
Here's a pic of them together: http://www.warbirdinformationexchange.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=314840

Sorry if I accidently double posted here.
Anyway here is a photo I found on the web of Left Gardner's P38 "White Lightning" and Steve Hinton in the P40N "Spud Lag":

The last time any P40s raced at Reno was 1995 (P40N-Spud Lag and P40E-Sneak Attack)
I'm trying to gather some P40 racing photos and heritage information.
Does anybody have any good Warhawk pylon racing photos and/or stories?
