Hi all,
My main modelbuilding focus is warbirds. One I completed last year is the lovely old Mauve 1/48 P-40M with OldModels Decals markings for A29-448, a P-40N-1 that was recovered from Tadji in PNG by Charles Darby and restored to fly here in NZ. Today she flies with a second seat and some dual instrumentation and controls, and even has all six .50cal machineguns in working order...albeit firing blanks. Always a big hit with the crowds at Wanaka. She wears the serial A29-1050 on the starboard side for no known reason except it was that way when she was recovered, and is on the NZ civil register as ZK-CAG.

So here she is, I hope you enjoy this slice of Aussie wartime history that has been happily flying in New Zealand for almost 20 years.
