    Nice pics mate!

    How come the yellow outer rings to the P-40's lower wing roundels?

    Thanks for having look Guys, Glad you like the pictures.

    Crimea River, I do have a few more pics which I will see if i can post soon. I would have taken more but my two younger children wanted to go home after a few hours. I also have some Video taken with my HD video cam of the Lancaster taxiing in as well as the B25J and I believe the Fairey Firefly MK V.

    The P40N is a reproduction of Canadian Ace James "Stocky" Edwards P40 ( as per CR's picture above) when he flew with RAF 260 Squadron in North Africa.
    By chance I was looking for information on his aircraft and found the below site. Its about how a an exploration team uncovered a P40 in North Africa with the same markings as Edward's P40.
    Have a look I think you will find it interesting.

    It's a beauty. Evan, the P-40 was restored by Pioneer Aero at Ardmore (South Auckland, New Zealand).

    I didn't know the Kiwi's restored it. They did one hell of a job. Great to see one of our commonwealth brethren involved in the project.

    Cheers,
    Dave.

    Good styff. Wonder when we'll hear more about the P-40 discovered in the desert.

    Hey Dave, Pioneer are building up a reputation as P-40 restorers extraordinaires. Their work is amazing.
