P-40F 'Dammit',33 FG Operation Torch, Battle of Kasserine Pass

's P-40F ,I replaced the kit's vacuform canopy assy. with one from a hasegawa 'E' kit. Used kit decals of Dammit , one of the 's of the 33FG ferried to North Africa on the USS Chenango CVE-28,To take part in Operation Torch. Dec. 1942. Thanks to the expansion of the group build I thought that I might share this older build. except for the vacuform canopy ,of which my feeble hands can't content with, I think it's a great little kit.

  5. Robert, this is fantastic. The transfer of the P-40s from the Chanango is one of my favorite subplots of the overall Kasserine Pass drama.

  6. Nice work Robert, P 40's always look great in the desert scheme - the dupont equivalents give an little extra dimension to me.
    Wonderful photos - it looks as though the Kittyhawks were catapulted off the forward deck - never heard of that before - fascinating!

  7. I'm guessing the short deck of the CVE was the reason?
