Hello everyone... I know I really do tend to ask a lot of questions, sometimes in bursts sometimes randomly. I’m just trying to find as many schemes possible now that I have 3 kits of the P-40K/Kittyhawk III to build. I was just curious if there is any photographic evidence of the P-40K/KittyHawk III in the late war VVS Colors of AMT 7/11/12. I have found this photo of a modified “E” with a 2nd seat and “K” style tail fillet. https://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/pages/lendlease/p-40/tapani/p-40k-m-n/34twoseater.htm Honestly Id be happy to see any photo’s of them in the earlier green black colors of AMT 4 & 6. I know they were delivered in lend-lease colors and schemes. But they must’ve gone through repairs/re-paints at some point ? Maybe @Massimo Tessitori or @Learstang might have more info ? I know this is an off shoot of the main question ? But did any KittyHawk III’s the short tailed version with the tail fillet, make it to Australia or New Zealand in the Pacific, I haven't seen any yet ? Maybe Alan @LDSModeller might know ? Ive seen RAAF & RNZAF KH III use in North Africa and maybe possibly Italy ? Any help or info is gratefully received and acknowledged in advance ? Dennis
Curtiss P-40K Decals Super Scale International 1:32 This is another new sheet from Squadron Productions in their Super Scale International range of decals. The sheet contains full insignia, stencils, identification numbers and the ubiquitous sharks mouth for two aircraft, although there are only enough decals to complete one aircraft. The two options are:- • P-40K-5, Pilot – Major Robert Liles, CO of 16th FS, 51st FG, October 1943, in Olive Drab over Neutral Grey • P-40K-5, Pilot – 1st Lieutenant Charles White, 25th FS, 51st FG, Summer 1943, in Brown and Green over Light Grey The decals have been printed by Cartograf in Italy so you know the quality is going to be good. The decals are very glossy, in good register and nicely opaque the carrier film appears almost non-existent and can only really be seen on the aircraft numbers. If they’re like other Cartograf products they should react well with most softening and setting solutions, which will probably be required more with the shark mouths than any of the other decals. The instruction sheet has nice colour profiles of the aircraft showing not only decal placement, but also the colour schemes and the FS and DuPont codes for the colours used. Conclusion This is a very nice set of quality decals for the Hasegawa kit giving another pair of options for the modeller to decide upon. Highly Recommended. Review sample courtesy of
