The photos of the P-40 wreck were taken at a recent visit in December
2001 to the Classic Jets Fighter Museum, Parafield Airport, Adelaide
located near Salisbury, approximately 18kms north of the Adelaide CBD.
This P-40 wreck was recovered from PNG. While it is a "wreck", the
paint-work & markings are original (fair dinkum !).
This aircraft, named "The Carolina Belle" was covered by
AeroMaster on 48-308 "P-40s Curtiss Aces Pt.1" (AMD 1/1997). To quote
the AMD instructions:
P-40N flown by Capt. E.A. Harris, 8th FS, 49th FG. Standard OD (Olive
Drab) and Neutral Grey colours with a Yellow spinner and White tail.
For those that have sheet AMD48-308, the real kill markings
are more stylised & not quite as perfect as most kill markings you see
on profiles & decals.
