1/48 Hasegawa RAAF P-40 E
This plane was flown by five victory ace P Off Stuart Munro early 1942 from Port Moresby. At this time No. 75 Squadron was the only Allied fighter squadron standing between the Japanese and Australia. Many pilots of 75 Squadron entered service in North Africa and the Arabic expression “schufti” meant to have a close look. The kit was enhanced by an Ultracast seat and Eduard / Aires resin plus photoetched parts for additional cockpit details.
