I started this thread in the Paint Scheme forumn, but it was suggested that O. R. R. would be a better forumn to post this.

In "P-40 Warhawk Aces of the CBI" by Carl Molesworth, Osprey Aircraft of the Aces Volume 35 there are black and white photographs and color plates of P-40 Variants flown by the USAAF & CAF.

The skin in v4.05m that is used for our default P-40E (skull on both sides of the aircraft nose) is not correct. PF 4.04 does not have this skin.

This skull on the nose was actually applied to P-40-N units of 89th FS & 90th FS of the 80th FG and possiblly the 88th FS of this same 80th FG. These units were based in India starting in April - July 1944 timeframe.

We don't have P-40-K / Kittyhawk III (1325 HP, Allison V-1710-73, .50 x4 in wings), 1300 built.

We do have the P-40-M / Kittyhawk III (1200 HP, Allison V-1710-81, .50 x 4 or 6)600 built, similar to the longer version of the P-40-K, however it had lower takeoff power, but better power at altitude. The P-40-M was developed with British and "Commonwealth forces in mind and of the 600 built, all but five went to them." Aircraft of World War II by Stewart Wilson.

We don't have P-40-N / Kittyhawk IV (1200 HP, Allison V-1710-81,99 or 115, .50 x 4), 5216 built.

Maybe we should have the -K and -N models of the Hawk 87 model to go with the -M and put the correct skins for the model version?<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Mailman - FAP is over unless a third party approved by 1c decides to buy the code and carry on....Ilya and Oleg are done with it according to them, and since they said it - it is to be believed.

Forget about code changes and new planes and cockpit corrections no matter how slight you think they are...it ain't gonna happen.

SoW:BOB is on the burner now.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
