I would like to share a photo of the 85 Curtiss P40 done so far. Two shelves are already fully occupied. The complete list counts with 116 aircraft selected for this series. My father has already done the Tomahawks, E, L, F and most of the M version so far. He still has to build a couple of more M and all the N versions.
This will be the second largest series of our collection only behind the Spitfire´s series (120 models), quite near to the Hurricane´s series (112 models) and far from the fourth one North American Mustang´s series (62 models).
There is a lot of work on each model as well as many hours of research trying to represent them the closer we can to the real aircraft.
As I always say, we can only do it because we receive a lot of help from people who really know about these things. They are historians who devoted many years of their life and kindly share their knowledge with us. In this particular case from Canada, New Zealand, Australia and South Africa.
This is the last series of the "P" (Pursuit) group with 233 models.
We have already done the following series: P36 (18), P38 (8), P39 (9), P40 (85 done out of 116), P43 (1), P47 (15), P51 (62), P59 (1), P63 (2) and P66 (1).
Our goal is to build All the aircraft types that flew with the Royal Air Force, the Fleet Air Arm and all the Commonwealth (Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Rhodesia, etc.) in the time frame between 1936 and 1947, in all major versions (including field modifications, different or special markings, different armaments, different scheme colour camouflage, etc.) which were used in all the operational theatres or in special operations. And to include also Lend-Lease and captured enemy types under British markings. We also try to include in each series the aircraft which were flown by Ango Argentine pilots, most of them had very particular nose arts”
