This is the oldie but goodie AMT P-40K kit, representing the assigned aircraft of Wing Commander "Stocky" Edwards while he flew with 260 Sqn in the desert around January '43.  "Stocky" (who was called "Eddie" Edwards at the time) was one of the greatest Kittyhawk aces with at least 12 confirmed victories.



Thanks for looking!

Great job on Stockys plane!  Wink Thereís probably more about him on the site now than any pilot, there is Brian Cauchiís 1/32 model along with some historical photos and a little bit on him under Art.

Thanks Brad!  I've seen Brian's build, and it's a masterpiece.  What's really amazing about it is how he transformed the old 1/32nd Revell P-40E into such a stunning K.  I have the kit and had thought about trying to do the same, but soon realized it's way beyond my ablities!
