This is 1/32 Eduard P-40N Warhawk with the markings of “Joanne” from 89th Fighter Squadron, 80th Fighter Group, Karachi, India 1943

Paints are Gunze Sangyo acrylics.

Some decals like skulls, numbers on the tail and figures on the wheels are custom made.

Happy modelling.

Looks beautiful as always, but is that drop tank on back to front?

I have a doubt: it looks like the fuel tank is on the wrong direction :blink:

Overwise, really nice built, congrats :thumbsup:

Very impressive, sometimes they put the drop tanks on the wrong way round. 

 

 

 

Indeed they did.......................Tolga's got it right!

Thanks

I was willing to built Joanne when I saw first the box art of the old Eduard s kit years ago. It was impossible to find its decals in 1/32.

In the end I could get them as customized decals from customhobbydecals.

You can see also wrong direction drop tank of Joanne on Eduard s box art and also old version of squadron signal p-40 book s front cover.

Happy modelling

Thanks Lothar

As a matter of the fact I am not too fast.

This built was started months ago. Due to problem on skulls decal stopped for a while. After getting new skull decals re started and finished.

Glad you came back and finished it: well done.  And the reversed drop tank is a nice touch.  :goodjob:

I'm thinking, and this is just me thinking, that the drop tank was purposely  reversed to reduce aerodynamic drag.  If so, not sure if it would have made that much difference.
