Curtiss P-40E

Curtiss P-40E

Here are some pictures of my 1/48 scale Curtiss P-40E, captured and operated by Japan.

I converted this model from the MAUVE 1/48 scale Kittyhawk Mk. III (P-40M) kit.

The provisional marking suggest that the P-40E was captured by the Japanese army, and used in the
air defence of Rangoon, Burma.

The pilots probably were Lt. Akira Takano et al., Det. 2nd Chu-tai, 50 Sentai. Mingaradon airfield, Burma, March 1943
