The opening is for access to the radio equipment.

Did you do that? That is EXCELLENT work!!!

Yeah mate, good work!
Actually, im waiting for the P-40D/Kittyhawk Mk1. And yep, seeing its in Aussie colours, I'd say the compartments for beer! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

My uncle used to fly Alouettes for the South African Air Force, apparently there is a compartment in the tail boom that is perfect for stowing away your rods.

I remember seeing a picture of Mk.IX with a barrel on the bomb rack.

LOL, I can see the coroners report:
Cause of Death....patient was found lying in alcohol, patient had been warned about drinking in open spaces! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I have heard stories from pilot that work for relief aid companies that fly the C-130. Now the aicraft comes in and does the drop, its cruising at like 100+ Kts and naturally the bags of maize come out doing the same speed....roughly. The ethiopians dont wait till the stuff has stopped, they try to catch these bags cruising at 100+ Km/h naturally they dont stand up after the impact.

A P-40N would be most welcome, since it was also used by ML-KNIL forces.

The Spitfires did deliver beer to the troops at Normandy, didn't they? That's when beer was carried on the belly racks.

The secret weapon: A P40 gets stalked by a Zero & is doomed but Tom Hanks pops out of the opening with a Tommygun & zaps him! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

It shouldn't be too hard. From what I've heard, the P-40N is just an M with 2 MG's removed. Hell, against those paper zero's, who needs 6X .50?

They should also be able to carry two 500lbs bombs on the wing racks.

I've recently bought a 1:48 P-40M from Eduard (lots of resin and photo etched parts) and attempting to do a P-40N in Dutch markings.

Actually p-40 M have performance like p-40 N - expecially good climb even at high alt and good turn. I think we dont need another p-40 with overmodelled climb rate.

A funny story in response to "Hey, is that compartment for beer"......
My father flew the P-51 in Korea (he has around 550 hours in one)...anyhow, their squadron had a visit from some high level brass and got a large shipment of (WARM) beer about 3 hours before the brass arrived. My fathers CO had him and 5 other guys load up the gun bays of their planes with as much beer as they could and take it up to 20,000 feet and fly around for an hour and a half to get the beer cold. I swear to God that's a true story. Ahhh, the things we'll do for a cold beer. I hope the brass appreciated it.

Nice as this might be, i tend to feel that we would be better served by having more japanese aircraft as well as allied/axis torp bombers, bombers and of course the Boomerang!



12-31-2004, 07:00 PM
whoohoo another boomerang fan!
If we want some real aussie missions we need one of them...Just love that tubby little *** kicker.

The P-40N would be really nice to have, shouldn't be that much work either(just modify the M model's cockpit area for the different canopy)

Whoa! No way Bearcat. That is not my work, although I wish it were. The last three years I've been working two jobs as an architectural modelmaker and a jewellery maker. It kind of takes the hobby modelling bug out of you. Heres some thumbs of my stuff:
