Nevertheless P-40 is one of my favorite and I'll definitely return to it with some new recolors.



I can use it as long as it suits the location where these planes were used.
Really like this method. Tricks from the cinematography of 1940s and 1950s are great!
I don't really think the minor diffs between any of the Warhawks would be all that objectionable. If you are turning into a "rivet counter" you may need to head on over the International Pizz and Moan Society...

Of course, thinking about this movie has already awakened some of the stranger places in my mind to the possibilities of a diorama depicting the famous scene with the actress on the periscope!!!


HORRYWOOOOD! HORRYWOOOOD!

There's a one very noticeable difference between E and K variants - enlarged vertical stabilizer on K variant. I'm not a "rivet counter" but details like this really hurt my eyes. First picture is E, second one is K.
Also from wikipedia(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curtis...awk_variants):
Intended to be the last P-40 production variant before replacement by the P-60 the P-40K was a continued development of the Allison powered Warhawk. It was similar to the P-40E, but was powered by a 1,325 hp V-1710-73 and had an enlarged vertical stabilizer to counteract the added torque. On the K-10 sub-variant onward, this was replaced with the lengthened tail of the P-40F-5. This feature was standard on all subsequent Warhawks.

In the next hours I'll reveal some hints about my next aircraft.

And here's the promised hint.
I could reveal more details but some of you would probably nail this aircraft on the first try...

Well Don Kacper does give the year so that narrows it down to hundreds of planes.......

I'll hazard the first guess: B6N 'Jill'.

I won't confirm or deny anything. Everything will be revealed when I finish my work on that aircraft.

Ok, here's the second hint and that's all. Can't be too easy!
