    Product Description
    Curtiss P-40E Warhawk "Yellow 20"
    343rd Fighter Group. Pilot unknown
    Based in the Aleutian Chain, Alaska. Late Spring, 1943
    The 343rd Fighter Group was activated 9/1942, and was a part of the XI Fighter Command. Jack Chennault, the son of General Claire Chennault, commanded the unit, which was nicknamed the "Aleutian Tigers" in his father's honor. Finished in very worn and matt Olive Drab and Neutral Gray, due to sandblasting effect of the abrasive volcanic dirt on the islands. Spinner is yellow. Prop blades black with 4" yellow tips. Red outlined stars and bars in all 4 positions. Name is a best guess only. Outer wheel hubs yellow.

    Curtiss P-40E Warhawk "Tarheel" White 85
    9th FS/49th FG. Flown by 2nd Lieutenant George Preddy
    Based at Darwin, Australia. February, 1942
    Preddy was a new pilot when he flew this P-40E. He was nearly killed in White 85 during a training mission, when another Warhawk collided with him. Both aircraft crashed in flames. Preddy managed to bail out. He went on to fly P-51 Mustangs and became the highest scoring Mustang Ace of WWII. Tarheel is finished in somewhat worn matt Olive Drab and Neutral Gray, with a OD spinner, and NG or possibly white outer wheel hubs. Props black with 4 inch yellow tips.

    Curtiss P-40E Warhawk "White 29"
    C.O. of 23rd Fighter Group. Flown by Colonel Robert L. Scott
    Kunming, China, Early October 1942
    On Sept 25, 1942, Col. Scott scored his 5th victory in this a/c, shooting down a Japanese fighter over Gia Lam, Hanoi. 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 P-40E, 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. Wheel hubs Neutral Gray. Spinner OD, but could be red, blue or yellow, as Scott changed it often to fool the enemy into thinking there were more aircraft.

    Curtiss P-40E Warhawk "Skeeter" White 81
    9th FS, 49th FG. USAAF Flown by 2nd Lt. John Landers
    Based at Darwin, Australia. February, 1942
    Landers scored the first 4 of his 14.5 total victories in this aircraft. Landers went on to fly P-51s in Europe; Big Beautiful Doll being his most well known aircraft. Skeeter is finished in the British Export colors of Dark Green/Dark Earth camo with light blue-gray undersurfaces. Some state this aircraft was painted Olive Drab and Neutral Gray. Photos are inconclusive. DE or OD wheel hubs, depending on scheme. Props black with 4 inch yellow tips.

    Curtiss P-40K-1 Warhawk "White 29"
    7th FS/ 49th FG; Flown by 2nd Lieutenant Arland Stanton
    Port Moresby, New Guinea. March 1943
    Stanton was an ace with 5 victories. His first was on November 23, 1942 and his last was on February 6, 1944. This P-40K is finished in weathered Dark Green and Dark Earth over Light Gray (DuPont equivalents). Spinner is OD with a blue tip. Blades are black with 4" yellow tips. Wheel hubs are Neutral Gray. Note ring and bead sight.

    How to apply water-slide decals:
    1. Preparation: to achieve better result, a gloss or semi-gloss coat is very important. It will make a smooth layer which the decals will suction to and make it much easier to apply and set them.
    2. Cut out the decal you need (do it on cutting mat)
    3. Grab the decal with tweezers, place it on the surface of the water and leave it for about 20 seconds.
    4. Remove the decal from the water and place it on paper towel to remove any excess water.
    5. Apply decal solution to the part where the decal is to be placed.
    6. Slide the decal off the backing paper on to the model. Using a paint brush or cotton bud is a good way to do this without damaging the decal.
    7. Use the brush, knife or cotton bud to position the decal. Using your paper towel, gently dab the decal and soak up the excess water (decal softner is also recommended at this stage. After applying softner, the decal will suction to the part and flatten out smooth.)
    8. When the decal is completely dry, give another coat of varnish or Klear/Future to seal it.
