start with this'un, a 57th FG "Scorpion", a Hasegawa "K". I believe the pilot's name was Overcash, a successful Ace. Turns out this decal sheet I used was not entirely accurate, but the skull is still cool. This Sand over Olive Drab scheme is f[...]

Here is my last model that I finished.
This is 1/48 Hasegawa P-40N Warhawk with the markings of 89th FS 80th FG in India during 1944.
The decals are from Eagle Strike “Birds of Prey Warhawks and Kittyhawks Part 1” # 48147.
