Great and clear photo.
However, in case of plane No49 and No.96, some tape very similar in color to the camouflage appears to have been used
(I cannot even detect it on the photos that I have enclosed above).

Thanks in any case for the confirmation!

Hello,

Looking at various photos of 343FG/11FS aircraft, namely aircraft No.49, I have noticed that no photos of these early birds show gun barrels protruding from the wing leading edges.
Was this another modification for operating in the cold weather (like sealing the openings around exhaust pipes)?
Or were they deleted from the photos by a censor?

Thanks for the suggestion!
I know the author uses factory drawings, so I'll e-mail him.

Hello,

I am in a process of correcting an inaccurate kit, and would like to make new crescent-shape panel that frames the rear glass.
Could anyone please help me with some original factory drawings of this panel, marked on the picture below (or P-40D/E/K rear glass itself) in developed view, so I can copy its complex geometry?



Thanks in advance!
Aleksandar

I read that the "US ARMY" underwing stencil (applied to early war P-39 and -40s) color
was actually INSIGNIA BLUE, not black

Is this really true, and can it be confirmed with color photos?
