  1. Hi I am looking for the fuselage code letter of FAA Grumman Hellcat JV126 from HMS Emperor Sq 800. This Hellcat was landed and detained in Turkey after a mission during WWII. We know that it s JV 126 and first code letter is "E". But any idea about the second fuselage letter. I found JV 125 which has code letter E and O. And also I heard that there is a list of FAA Hellcat in the book named "Fleet Air Arm Aircraft 1939 to 1945" ( Ray Sturtivant, Mick Burrow) which was published by Air Britain Publication Does anybody here have full list of FAA Hellcat with fuselage code letter. I will be happy if you can send me this information if possible. Regards
  2. Thanks No I am using decor cardboard or wooden panel which are using in furniture
  3. Sure, you can use Kevin It s never a problem Regards
  4. No, First version of the N's had early style canopy. New style canopy started to be used in P-40 N-5 variants. P-40N originally was an attempt to build a lightweight version of the Warhawk. The wing racks were deleted, the oil cooler and radiators were made of aluminium instead of brass and internal fuel was reduced to 120 gallons by removing the forward reserve fuel tank. Magnesium smaller wheels were used. First 3 production blocks had only four machine guns in the wings. But later in the field most of them changed to std 6 guns. P-40N-1 was the fastest of all production Warhawk variants with top speed of 378 miles per hour. Regards
  5. This is 1/32 Hasegawa P-40N-1 flown by Lt.G.L.Walston, , 16th FS 51st FG, Kunming, China 1944. ( Note that the aircraft lacked the national insignia on the top of the left wing.) Base kit is 1/32 Hasegawa P-40M with some after market modifications. Cockpit modified by Eduard PE set. Exhaust stacks and wheels replaced with Eduard resins. Decals are from Eduard P-40N Warhawk kit. Paints :Gunze Sangyo acrylics. Happy modelling
  6. DK decals are nice but a little sensitive. Though they are wet, they dry quickly and stick to the surface . So it needs carefully placement. HpH set works great and easy. It contains clear resin windscreen and canopy parts, windscreen base, corrected horizontal tails ,flaps etc.
  7. These are Gunze Sangyo acrylics as I mentioned in my first post. This is my favourite brand
  8. Thanks Ray Upper colors are RAF Dark earth and Dark sea grey. Lower surfaces are British underside sky color. As a matter of the fact this bird was painted to classic Dark earth, Dark green over Sky , when moved to Malta dark green replaced by Dark sea grey.
  9. Thanks Jennings No I haven t seen them. Can you share few of them
  10. Thanks Brian British Sky color with these upper colors is irresistible for me
