So I started this while waiting for the next GB. Up to the paint scheme, it should go pretty fast
Right off the get-go, I was stopped by the interior colour. After a few days of book and web I find out the the earliest version of the P-40 were painted in a colour between ZCY and ZCG. I have both but not a third so how to get there from here. Reading articles about Zinc Chromate one finds that to make ZCG one adds black to ZCY so I added the former to the latter, slowly building up to what I think is a mid-colour (photos shortly). Airfix gives two versions of the seat, round back, U.S., and square back, export, which I'll be using. Further research says that the U.S. version only used lap-belts but now I need to find what the RAF used......................
