Really great! Is it sure, that she did not wear any national insignia?

I'm not sure, but in some article I met a mention that on the white "4" the insignia were painted over. So I glued them on and then painted them over.  ;)

Lovely model.  Is that the one Robert Scott flew over Everest? 

 

If you were to pantograph this one down to 1/72 I'd buy one.  FYI/BTW.  🙂

Thanks!


Perhaps this is Robert Scott's P-43, I cannot say for sure. Also of the possible pilots for this aircraft is Jeffrey O. Wellborn.

 

Work on 1/72 is already underway ;)

I read that Wellborn was flying his P-43A with Chinese markings. Looking for the reference. Does the kit provide decals for Wellborn’s ship? Thank you and this is an impressive kit!!

After consulting with an American colleague who has a good archive of the war in China, we came to the conclusion that this plane belonged to Wellborn.

Sure, no problem.
I think it is better to discuss it in personal messages.

Nice to see a P-43! The weathering is subtle and well done. I am looking forward to adding the 1/72 model kit to my collection as soon as it is released and I will definitely build it as a 23FG plane as well.
