    curtiss P40E Warhawk
    C.O. of 23rd fighter group,
    flown by colonel Robert Lee Scott
    Kunming ,china, early october 1942

    on sept 25, 1942. Col Scott scored his five victory in this P40, shooting down a japanese fighter over Gia Lam, Hanoï.

    Scott nicknamed this aircraft "the old exterminator", but the name was not carried on the aircraft.
    white 7 was originally delivered to the AVG.
    The serial number was painted out, and no record of what it was seems to exist.

    This P40E, finished in olive drab and neutral gray, was quite clean , and seems to be polished.
    Some claim the upper part of the sharkmouth was painted dark blue,but in depth research indicates that it was black
    Spinner olive drab, but could be red,blue, or yellow, as Scott changed it often to fool the enemy into thinking there were more aircraft.
