Hi Jankees

Thanks a lot. I take this model from a Squadron Signal P-40 book, they say it is a rare variation of the National Insignia only seen in the Pacific at 1942.

Best regards

Very nice! Did you have to freehand the tiger?

Cool, but wouldn't the roundels on the wings not be white-only as well?
The underside of the wings in the profile shows the US ARMY markings, but no star on the army side, so I assume it would only have one star on the upper side as well?

I don't know if this picture is of 'E' models but it is worth considering:
