if you could mock up a P-40 as a P-36 that would be wonderful.

I've got quite a bit to get outta the way, with one thing and another, but I'm sure I can sort something out for you... Probably the top one, as it's based in France...

Pilot 2nd Lt. Jack Hallett 394 FS 367FG St. Dizier France March 1945

The 'natural metal' of the wing sections was due to repair after a crash - landing, apparently...

Excerpt from 367th Fighter Group newsletter – Issue # 11 - July 2015

Date: 16 December 1944

"Group: bomb escort mission, Lt. Slingerland leading 34 P-38s. Rendezvous was made with RAF Lancasters and they were escorted to target area at Seigen. Result of the bombing appeared to be excellent. On the withdrawal at 19 000 feet 16 Me-109s jumped the 394th and 10 FW-190s attacked the 393rd. Lt Hallett of the 394th chased a Me-109 and after making several passes at it, stubbornly clung to his tail. The enemy aircraft began to take violent evasive action in an effort to dislodge Lt. Hallett and finally dove into the ground."

Clark was killed in it Sept. 10 1944 when he flew into the target when strafing a marshalling yard at Heilbronn, Germany. It was thought that he had a depth perception problem as he had already flown into a couple of trees which he had marked on the plane with his missions.

Well that's strange because I've got it as 16th FS 23rd FG, Lt. Dallas A. Clinger (Kweilin, China, Autumn '42)...

It's the one at the front.

This last P-40 is probably one of my faves as it goes. I was tres happy with the weathering (and the mouth, which was from scratch as well).

Well, it was either Rat or Donkey and I personally prefer Rat. A very successful little beast, like the Rata. Ishak just doesn't do it for me!!

When the P-51C is issued I shall be doing 'By Request', the personal mount of Col. Benjamin O. Davis Jr. The man, along with his fellow Tuskegee pilots, was a hero. Just sayin'...

Can't wait. A small remark: Letter U stands for Urbanowicz (no need for the Czechoslovak cocarde on the plane ) and letter F for František who was Czech ; )

It didn't always follow that the pilots had their initials on the plane... RF F is famous for being involved in Urbanowicz's record of activity... plus, they often flew other planes as well, depending on the state of repair 'in the field'. For instance, John Kent's machine (with the red tail-band) is RF J. I'm not being pedantic, I'm just sayin'... :good:
