I'm having some trouble attaching the photos.  Hopefully these two work.

Finally finished this one, although not with the markings I had originally planned. Instead, I used the Kitsworld decals.  Unfortunately, its 79th FG decals are inaccurate, this one being no exception.  "Fifinella" was on X24, not X21 per Kitsworld, which was the P-40F flown by 85th FS pilot Lt. Robert Taylor.  I had held off on this build because his P-40F, like most others of the 85th, likely had some name in white just under the exhausts, but from the only full profile photograph I have of his plane in flight (which, according to Murphy's Law, was of course taken from the opposite side that the "Fifinella" artwork was on!) it appears it had none when said photo was taken.  I've been hoping that another would turn up, but at this point I think it's highly unlikely.

The Special Hobby P-40F kit is okay, but I've been spoiled by its new-tooled P-40 releases; unfortunately the F/L not being one of them.  The necessary photo-etch parts were especially troublesome for me, since being 72nd scale were quite difficult for me to handle.

Improved the kit's gun sight.
UV cure glue was used to attach a new and thinner glass part I cut.
Also UV glue used to make the clear "lens" bubble.  UV glue is coming in very handy!

Slow but sure progress.

The Eduard Brassin wheels are a sight to see.  Gorgeous product.
But I was worried about cleaning up the hub spokes.
Fortunately, my Dremel and I found a way:

Cool!
Is that resin conversion for the Mauve still available anywhere?
I know AeroMaster has been gone for years..

You could look on eBay. I got a couple of them from there although it's been a couple of years. Haven't looked for a while, I would usually look every few days or a week and see if it showed up.
