Hi SeaNorris,
Just comparing the skin to photos of the original in The P-40 Kittyhawk in Service by G Pentland (Kookaburra Technical). I noticed that the white colour acually extends to both upper and lower surfaces of the tail planes. Looking at other similarly marked P-40's, it seems to be a standard treatment http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif.

Please don't get me wrong though. This is a beautiful skin and all of your work is very gratefully reecieved http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

SeaNorris, that Ki-43 skin above is awsome. Is that one available too?

Why did they paint the tail white? I thought it was a graphics error in the P-40M at first.

Special protection against friendly fire (the wing leading edges were white too).
