This model, representing a machine flown by Sq. Ldr. Dicky Cresswell, was built alongside the USAAC P-40E that I posted earlier. I used Ultracast seat w/Sutton harness, exhausts, and wheels plus decals from the Cutting Edge PYN-Art Series. I op[...]
Here is my rendition of Leutnant Heindel's Messerschmitt Bf109E-4B of Stab II/Jadgeschwader 54
based in Arad, Romania during March 1941.

I built this P-40E to serve as a general specimen to represent how so many of them began their service life, regardless of which allied nation might receive them. I've always found the P-40E in the color photograph (above) published in one of E[...]
