Why copy, they just decided to choose the same scheme. There was a long debate what camouflage should Eduard go with and this is the result.

So Eduard release an existing kit with existing decals?
Hardly filling a gap in the market.
And I find Eduards obsession with scantily clad females bloody infantile.
"First, shalt thou take out the Holy pin. Then, shalt thou count to three - no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shall thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that then thou shalt proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number is reached, then lobbeth thou thy Holy hand grenade of Antioch towards thy foe who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it. Amen"

The rudder camo is similar but different to my eye.

Decals in reality are much more close to the colors from instruction sheet. Distributors leaflet is more for information as for considering the reality:
Then why print the wrong colours on the distributors leaflet??? - Makes no sense?
The colours on the decal sheet are more suited for the Home Roundels worn in New Zealand, but still too light
for actual colour used in the forward areas, and the "G" Code letter is still missing on NZ3220......................

I am glad that these molds are back in circulation, so we don't have to suffer the insane price increase of OOP Hasegawa.

Well, this was a surprise for me too... Yes they offer overtrees for P-40N. I am not sure, but Eduards CEO mentioned this before, but of course, this was not pushed forward, due to the possibility of ruining the market with their full kit.

I had suggested other options for a "Burma Banshees" P-40N, but they wanted to stick to that machine, flown by (one of) the last 80th FG pilots still alive... Phillip Adair sadly passed away last month.
P-40N #1 flown by Ivan McElroy would have been an interesting option, or Bob Gale's "Dikam Death".
See my blog: http://burmabansheesblog.blogspot.fr/ or the "Burma Banshees" Facebook page.
Come on, Rising Decals

You can get both full kit and overtrees from Eduards webshop.
I got my full kit at Modelbrno 2017 exhibition.
