FMS 1400 new P-40B

Fellow Fliers, FMS is announcing the new P-40B in 1400 mm, the Plane is due here in August.

In order to complete the final assembly, I need your input on the final color scheme, the same as we did with the P-39.

Once I have compiled all your suggestions the one with the most votes will be sent to the factory.

From all the colors submitted, I will choose a random name who will get a free P-40.

Watch for a Pre-Order special price on our website shortly. The price will include an extra propeller

I will request a few all white for those that want to paint your own.

Please send your paint suggestions to support@diamondhobby.com with the Subject P-40 color.

Here are few CNC pictures

I can't wait for this, P40 is one of my favorite planes and I'm quite excited that it will be coming out in the 1400 range! Simple early war would get my vote for a scheme, but whatever it comes out to be I'll be purchasing it.

Pearl harbor would would be sweet. Flying tigers not a bad option either.

i second pearl harbor scheme but leave the decals on a seperate sheet off the plane. i hated pealing off the decals on my 1700mm corsair then repainting before i could redecal the way i wanted.

single thing i hate the most on these foam planes is they come specialized to one particular plane. include the decals but leave em on a seperate sheet.

Darn! I was going to suggest the RAAF Milne Bay livery but those were not "B" models, they were Kittyhawks.

Email sent. Also requested Pappy Boyington's bird as flown for the AVG in the First Pursuit Squadron.

Looks like some nice scale details. Proper retracts and door covers, looks like a retractable tail wheel too. Cowl flaps, nose guns, fuel tank. Looks good!

I love keeping it simple like this. That way it at least comes with something, but gives people the chance to call it their own with their own paint/graphics.

If it does come like this, keep the numbers off so that when multiple people show up to the field with the same plane they can all decide on different numbers to put on their planes
