I was wondering if anybody could do the paint scheme on the P-40C in Everett Washington. It would look great on the Wings of Power P-40. Registration number NX2689.

Isn't this more or less the same as the AVG birds already done?
If not, a few more detailed pictures might help.

Hoi Jankees,

When you want to do this repaint, the textures by RobH and John 'Bomber_12th' Terell for the FS2004 P40 by Bruce Thorson might be handy. The AVG aircraft with number 71 (P-8119) was flown by Ed Overend and Ed Shilling.
For Stearmanaviator, the repaint is very similar to the one done by ICDP for AVG aircraft number 77.

Best regards,
Huub

Stearman, where abouts do you live? I am up in Gresham and was down in that musuem probably a month ago. I might even have a picture of that plane.

I live in Faribault, Minnesota and I haven't had the chance to make it out to the museum in Everett, Washington yet. But I plan to get out there some time in the near future.

I'll tackle this one when I get back from my next fieldtrip, about mid-june.
Meanwhile, a good pic of the red girl(?) would be helpful if anybody has one?

Here is a link to a P-40 very similar in color but from a different squadron; 1st squadron, "Adam and Eve."

I'm not a fan of this paint due to it looking to shiny and not a flat color like most of the war time paint jobs. I too would like to see some authentic pictures of a Flying Tigers P-40 to determine if they were that glossy.

Hi Jankees, excellent work you have done with the P-47, P-40 and the PBY Catalina. I have some of your paint kits and are great.

I have a good picture of the lady you were looking for, just one part of the foot cut but you can fix it with photoshop..
