Happy New Year to all! Hope I can finish one of my P-40 projects this year  Smiley  There are nice projects being put up that are an inspiration.

Another year in the books (or, two in the case of this post).  Hopefully all P-40 aficionados will have a happy and healthy 2019, and perhaps even build a model or two of this exceptional airplane!

Cheers,

Mark

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).

Here's a link (hopefully) of the photograph I'm referring to:

Hi Bill,

Vince is right; no P-40Es saw service with US units in the Mediterranean, although the commonwealth units flew pretty much every variant of the P-40. 450 Sqn RAAF flew the Kittyhawk up until VE day.

Make sure you let us know what you think of the Trumpeter kit once you receive it, and a Merry Christmas to you too!

Mark

I see you got your answer over on Britmodeller, so won't repeat it except to say I have a photograph of a P-40E taken in January 1942 in Hawaii that has the gun ports taped over, so obviously it wasn't just for cold weather!

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!
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
