Interesting that it has no national markings on the fuselage or tail.
Do you have a photo of an assembled model or test build?

So, for some reason, I have not been able to purchase Nobi's kits for a while now.
Whether I use my pc or phone, I get a card declined message (trust me, it works everywhere else ).
I have tried allowing third party cookies, changing settings in the browser, etc.
Phone uses safari, pc uses chrome. Any ideas?

Got it! Another beautiful model.

Simon - I am typing off the top of my head without checking references, but as I recall, the American Volunteer Group (AVG), or "Flying Tigers," did not paint the Nationalist Chinese national marking on the fuselages of their P-40s. When the unit was incorporated into the USAAF as the 23rd Fighter Group (on the 4th of July(!) 1942) there was a period when the Nationalist (Republic of China) roundels were painted over with U.S. insignia and in lieu of national insignia on the fuselage some aircraft had symbolic representations of a flying tiger (tiger wilth wings as in Major Rector's aircraft) or a tiger with wings wearing a red-white-and-blue Uncle Sam top hat leaping through a Chinese Nationalist insignia so as to hit all the symbolic notes at one time).

Photo caption: "Former members of the American Volunteer Group, Flying Tigers, serving with the 23rd Fighter Group, standing beside a Curtiss P-40, Kunming, China, July 1942. Left to right: Maj. John R. Alison, Maj. David Lee "Tex" Hill, Capt. Albert J. "Ajax" Baumler, and 1st Lt. Mack A. Mitchell. National Archives and Records Administration, Washington, D.C., Record Group 342. (http://www.footnotelibrary.com/image/#28827964)."

Ray - This Dogface had no problem making the purchase with my credit card. I am jusing Windows 10 and Edge with a PC.

Got the model- excellent work Nobi.

By sheer coincidence this morning I was watching a Yarnhub video on YT about another P-40 pilot Lt Philip R. Adair and his flight with Zeros. I think I've seen somewhere a model of his Burma Banshee P-40 ,I just have to find it. It would make great companion to Nobi model.

A huge thank you to everyone for all your support. Every bit of support will allow me to design new models for this wonderful community. I will continue to strive to create good work for everyone.

@siwi I have a picture of my test build before I went to the hospital. The assembly may not be neat, but it should give you an idea of what the model I designed looks like.

@Ray I'm sorry that the Buymeacoffee website doesn't support your purchase. I will try to find another way to receive payment from you without any problems. (Please also check your email, I have something for you.)

I would be happy and grateful if you would be kind enough to buy me a coffee or two at Thaipaperwork is Card model designer - Buymeacoffee as a token of encouragement or to support my daily expenses.

**Thank you again for everything!**

Oh those Banshee P-40N are quite a sight to look at. I do not have the best references for P-40s, but the biggest differences would be a longer rear fuselage, tail planes moved forward some, and the changes to the cockpit to allow for a better view to the rear for the pilot.

Nobi, how much work would it take to modify your 3D model for changes like that, then to export back out to a 2D card model? I imagine that it is not as simple as it sounds.

Thanks NOBI and thanks for sending the B-26 through as well. I like to see a picture of real model even if just a white test build to get a feel for the detail and the size of the parts.
