I'm looking for high res photos of USAAF P-40s in North Africa for a new book I'm working on. Preferably with caption information.

Your assistance, of course, will be acknowledged with thanks !

Cheers, David Mitchelhill-Green

That's great!
I love how the back seat had been signed by five AVG men!

Are you interested in plastic or balsa? In balsa, Guillow's has two different sizes, they are okay shape wise. John Bell made a very nice kit, I saw it's available again through I believe Penn Valley Hobbies (I think that's their name?), The plans can also be found online for free.

In plastic, depends which scale you are interested in, I don't know much about the 1/72 scale kits, in 1/32, there's the ancient Revell which has an accurate outline that you would have to scratch build the interior and wheel wells, Trumpeter has one with a few noticeable accuracy errors, Hasegawa came out with a number of different ones, but they are relatively expensive on eBay. In 1/48 scale there are quite a number, Hasegawa has one or a couple nice ones, AMT made some that were nice for their day and hold up locate today, AMTech reissued those under their own label, one of them had a resin nose upgrade and the other a resin tail, they can still be found on eBay. Mauve made one that wasn't too bad. True Details made, or still makes a resin interior, the last time I looked it was reasonably priced on eBay.

If you are getting back into it, I recommend the new Airfix kits.  They are not very expensive and the are a lot of fun to build.
I did the 1/72 P-51D and had a blast.
The recent 1/48 P-40B is quite accurate.

What model series would you recommend for a "novice" in today's high-tech world of model building. When I was in Jr. High school (1950's era) I built balsa wood models, Strombecker kits. Now that I am retired, I'd like to start again. The P-40, P-47 and the P-51 were my favorites then, and still are today. Thanks- "Congo"..

Here I have used my drill press to create holes for the nice brass gun barrels from Master:

Perhaps more important that the holes were the backstops that need to be there or else you lose your parts later at installation!

I don't know about the angle, Vince, but everything about the prop and spinner look good to me!
