    Request: P40Q

    I'm currently working on cutting down the back of one of my models, which happens to be a p40. I need pictures as a guide. Thanks.

    Thank you. If memory serves, the plane could out gun the P47 and the P51, with 4 20mm guns, and provision in the prototype for two cowl mounted .50 cals. That, and the P40 was one of the best allied fighters in terms of turning radius (still no match for the Zero).

    Don't know where I got the two fifty cals, but it SHOULD have been added.

    I think the P-63 might dispute what you say.
    I agree....

    Good news: I finished the mod to my P40
    Bad News: My camera is messed up, so no pics until I get a new one
