  1. Hi, Just taking from shelf models which stand next to Thai Hawk 75N, which I posted few days ago.... Curtiss P 40 - this was my favourite fighter when I was about 10. This was because of the sharkmouth painted on almost each one. In my collection I have just three of them now - two of them I want to present today. One is Tomahawk, P 40 C (Academy, 1/72) in markings pilot R.T.Smith, 3rd Pursuit Squadron (Hell Angels), China Republic AF in winter 1941-42, operating over China-Burma border. The kit went serious surgery - fuselage was cut twice, in engine and behind the canopy. Perhaps the exhaust pipes were also moved - I do not remmeber it now very well. The coller inlet was also reshaped. From some days I was searching for plans which I was folowing when I was doing model, but I cannot find it now. It is about 20 years,,, Sorry. I know also, that I followed wrong profile, where it was suggested, that British B roundels on top were overpainted by Chinese olive green. I did it this way, but from this Forum I've learnt recently, that I was wrong. Perhaps one day I will correct this. The second one is P 40 E (Hasegawa, 1/72 - OOB except decals) in markings of 11 Sq. 343 Group of "Aleutian Tigers", USAF, Aleutian Islands, 1942. In those times there was no Aleutian Tiger in Hasegawa box, I loved this camo so I painted "tiger" directly on model (what a risk! - not on decal). I followed the profile in which US markings were in form of just white stars. Frankly speaking - I am not sure if it is right. If anybody can confirm or denide it - I will then correct it also. There is on my shelf the third one P 40 - an old Airfix model (rised lines and many rivets) which I converted into P 40 M when I was 16, and it is in markings of Col. Witold Urbanowcz - fameous Polish BoB ace from 303 Squadron RAF, the P40 M he used when he was fighting as volunteer at the end of WWII in China. If someone want to see it - please PM me. In stash I have next three P40...I want to do N from New Zealand, K from RAF (desert) and Merlin one (F/L) from US or FFAF Comments welcome Regards Jerzy-Wojtek And P 40 E:
