Hello,

For those of you who don't visit in the Painters Forum very often, I thought I'd put some pics and link in here to my new skin. Hopefully there will be alot more pilots in the P-40 after the patch, so this one is for this planes now and future fans.

Nice skin!!! I've been trying to get the P-40 template so that I could do Wairarapa Wildcat myself. I visited the pilot of this machine a couple of years ago. Geoff Fisken is his name, and he has many stories to tell. He got his 'ace' status flying Brewster Buffaloes in Singapore!!
A couple of things you may want to change on your skin though. Kiwi P-40's were olive drab all over, no camo. The tail number of Geoff's aircraft was NZ 3072. NZ 3009 was restored in New Zealand for Ray Hannah in the colours of Wairarapa Wildcat, exactly as you have shown. However the real Wairarapa Wildcat, was olive drab, and was coded NZ 3072. It also had an identification number on the forward cowl of 19. This was in white. The black cat is on both sides of the cowl, but the white outline to the cat, the kills, and the words, only appear on the left hand side. The white outline to the cat is infact chalk, hastily applied before Geoff was interviewed, so that it would show up better on the black and white film used in the day.
I'm in Greece working at the moment, but when I get back to New Zealand, I can scan a good photo of this aircraft and email it to you if you like, just give me your email address. I will be back in NZ on July 20th.
Hope all this helps /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif Not trying to be pickey, just want it to look right /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Thank you Sirs for you comments! I hope you enjoy flying in these colors.

To Grifffo:

The aircraft I reproduced is the P-40 NZ3009, restored in New Zealand, as you point out. I also have the following info on the NZ3072 you refer to:

http://www.kithobbyist.com/rnzaf/gf.html

If the images contained on the page linked to above are what you refer to, then indeed, this aircraft skin is one I will complete in the very near future, hopefully next week.

Thank you for your great help and details in this, Sir!

nice links there. forgot about the 19 being black!!! doh!!
that article is very good, lots of nice pics. geoff wasn't invalided out of the airforce though. he was thrown out after threatening to kill his CO. to this day, mention of that mans name, makes him get very agitated. this CO was the cause of many losses they had over there, and geoff decided he wasn't going to put up with it anymore. so ended his career.
after the war, at a reunion, his old CO walked in, and geoff promptly went over and punched him!!! guess he really didn't like him huh http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
edit about the camo: M's, N's and some K's were olive drab.
there were also 2 styles of white identification striping. as shown on your skin is the earlier version. later the whole tail was painted white.

Thanks for the info, It has been very helpful. I'll do my best to paint the NZ3072 properly.
