Curtiss P-40C Chino by shelbs2 Curtiss P-40C Chino by shelbs2
I think this had to be my favorite aircraft at the Planes of Fame show (even though it was static display only). A beautifully polished Curtiss P-40C Tomahawk. I hope they leave her painted like that.

I have been modeling plastic aircraft for years and have never seen a photo of the P-40 in natural metal as clear as this.  In fact it took a minute to realize it was not a YP- or P-40.  Nice pic!

Agreed. If they ever get bored of repeating the same scheme and insignia over and over again, I wish they repainted some P-40 in 112nd RAF sq. markings... Say, a Tomahawk like this as Clive "killer" Caldwell´s AK658/ "GA-X" Tomahawk, or even some P-40E as Caldwell´s later AK772/ "GA-Y" Kittyhawk, or as Neville´s Duke AK578/ "GA-V" Kittyhawk...

Or even Red Airforce VVS.
Anything different would be welcome.

I've heard rumours on a forum that this apparently belongs to the Fighter Collection. No idea if this is true though. It's beautiful though.
