I found the problem with uploading photos and it's fixed. The number of photos per post is now 8, and the physical and file size have been increased. Let me know if you have any problems.
5  P-40 Warhawk Forums / P-40ís in WWII / 79th FG info request for making decals on: March 08, 2021, 09:58:13 PM
I received this request for information on these P-40s, does anyone have any information on them? I looked through my stuff, but was unable to find anything on these particular aircraft.

I'm a scale modeler in Oregon, and I also design decals as a hobby. I've been recruited to make some decals for P-40s from the Flying Skulls (79th Fighter Group, 85th Fighter Squadron),

particularly these four:

Blue Goose II, X16, 41-19814, pilot Lt. John G. Hoagland
The Crump Machine, X36, pilot Lt. Thomas E. Cox
Oh, Honey, X11, 41-14492, pilot Lt. John R. Anderson
The Tennessean, X33, 41-14522(?), pilot Lt. William Ryburn

Both I and my "recruiter" have scoured the Internet and contacted several experts, but we're having trouble finding high res photos of the tail art and the cowl lettering, which was hand-written and doesn't match any standard typeface. I've attached some of the best reference art I have for each of those four aircraft.

Can you help?

Thanks for the heads up! I'll have to keep my eyes open for this one, haven't had a good P-40 book in a while now.

Nice save on the insert, I'll have to remember that when I get to any of those kits. Nice build and markings! I always thought the top of the stabilizers were white also?

I've heard you can thin it down with lacquer thinner, might help get it in those gaps? I haven't tried it as I don't use lacquer thinner, the fumes do me in.

Yeah, I've used to that and other times Milliput, they work really great for some situations. The Vallejo is a pretty quick option and actually dries really hard in the gaps.

I've seen some videos were guys would take the two-party epoxy and roll it out making some very thin wires or very flat for things like seatbelts, I never have been able to do that, I suppose it takes practice  Wink
