    I have this in the start to finish section because I am not sure that I will find proper decals for my P-40. If I can't, it'll be a normal build if I can a Mod can move it to the group build folders? Here are pictures of the kits and decals the white lettering is K - H - R . If anyone has P-40B decals 1/48 send me a PM please!

    If I can't find proper decals it may be a Me-109 I will do, if it's not the right variant, I will have to do a ..... do I dare say it.... SM.79

    Now these should be seen.

    Harrison , when you resizing pictures with the Irfanview , please, set JPG file format before you save a picture.

    Not sure if I have P40B decals will have a look...you should only need codes the British national insignia should suffice.

    I have told him the same. What is more the white letter "R" can be used when the right "leg" will be cut off. I cannot see the serial number but it can be adjust as well.If not this can be the only thing that Herrison needs.

    Where do I go to set that? Sorry about that guys !

    2 question for anyone, What color whats the cockpit of the P-40B seats, instrument panel etc

    Also, I have this thing called Nothhapton or Northhampton (Not sure) Putty, it's like a liquid form, is that OK for sealing the fuselage together.

    Wojtek the serial number is AH881

    Click the icon of a diskette on the tool bar of the Irfanview program or choose the save ( save as) from menu "File" and in the requester for saving you will find it at the bottom of the window.Click the marked with the red arrow square. I know there are Polish captions in the pic but it should look the same but with English ones on your screen.Scroll the list down set the JPG

    What's processing?

    It says to paint the cockpit interior green? Does Olive Drab or something of that nature work as a substitute?

    Processing...it was my joke, sorry But it is connected to data base program when it looks for something or set datas correctly.

    Yest the whole interior of P-40 cockpit was painted with interior green.But I have found the Curtiss factory used its own colour. However I think it was the Interior Green but applied on a primer and the preservative coat of Yellow Zinc Chromate or Green Zinc Chromate.

    Here these colours by ModelMaster.

    No, AH881 is not correct. But firstly you have to decide which P-40B you are going to build.

    Concerning buying these clours ...it would be better if you could purchase them but if you are short of money....

    Have you had silver , yellow and green paints yet?

    Okay I have them! Does the ID number mean I can't use this in the MTO build?
