Thank you again, Stik! Hey, we all know that there is a lot going on around here and not every thread gets looked at when it first pops up. There are many different reasons why threads don't get attention by every member. I'm not upset and you have no need to be embarrassed, my friend lol.

Just thank you. :)

Well looking at yours sure has me wanting to get my sidelined build of the same kit going again. Did you ever see the Life Magazine color photos of the P-40 production line? Superb reference for pre war AAF colors and assorted detail.

Indeed. Nice stuff to be seen like yellow zinc chromate and interior green, OD and Neutral Gray, yellow dope on fabric surfaces, bare metal and black yellow tipped propellor blades... not to mention those other aircraft on the production line, SBC Helldivers and I think O-10 observation aircraft. All in original color and not some techies guess at colorizing black and white. A true time capsule for late 1941 P-40s

Oh definitely! This are the best pre war pictures I've seen! Kinda makes me want to do an "in production" build.  Idea

Here is 100 Curtiss photos in an easier format for use if anyone is interested:

The NMF P-40's with the brown spinners are RAF birds which could also be the China-bound AVG aircraft.

I would like to find a 1/48 1941 Ford V3000S truck to build the Curtiss-Wright transporter.

Yes, thank you Rich! Also that would make a fabulous dio having a P-40 on the trailer all in pieces for transport. :)

And you're probably right about those brown spinners. I'm not sure when Australia or New Zealand put in orders for P-40's, but I've only seen -E's in pictures. So those must be the Brittish ordered P-40's.
