Pilot Officer Jack Bartle, 6.5 kills with No.112 Squadron displayed his Aussie roots with a kangaroo on his machine...





And as his wingman, GA - A SN. AK461




Each machine carried a unique shark mouth in No.112. The ground crews and pilots painted their own toothy grins rather than follow one set pattern. Thanks to Pete Booth for researching No.112 and coming up with codes, serial numbers and illustrations.

More to come... Charge

Iam realy looking forward to this!!

The P40C(not the later models) imho is one of the most beautiful planes ever build. The proportions just fit. smile

With such a skin it will be a pleasure to shoot it down. biggrin

The later P40s look more like a Buchon in comparison to the 109G, just ugly(ok not that ugly, but the proportions dont fit anymore).

btw, Ray, did you fix the flaps action code??

Yes the action codes are correct now but i have to fix a missing element in the wing root.

I'll be working on that today now that the Skua is finished.

Not that I'm aware of. I've got to zero in on the palette and fix the transparencies but it looks OK.

yep

Always liked the Tomahawk which is probably why I have 5 kits of it compared with only 2 Warhawks and 1 P-36
