Remember that Airfix Tomahawk from last December? I hit it with a coat of Mr. Surfacer 1000 last night. Looks pretty good, but it still needs some seam work. The real problem here is I can't decide on a scheme. It will be either a 400 or 414 Squadron aircraft in the Dark Green/Ocean Grey over Medium Sea Grey or a 403 Squadron aircraft in Dark Earth/Dark Green over Sky with a black and white wing. Decisions, decisions...
In the air war over Finland, several Soviet P-40s were shot down or had to crash-land due to other reasons. The Finns, short of good aircraft, collected these and managed to repair one P-40M, P-40M-10-CU 43-5925, white 23, which received Finnish Air Force serial number KH-51 (KH denoting "Kittyhawk", as the British designation of this type was Kittyhawk III). This aircraft was attached to an operational squadron HLeLv 32 of the Finnish Air Force, but lack of spares kept it on the ground, with the exception of a few evaluation flights.
