Special Hobby Curtiss P-40N-5 Warhawk of the “Burma Banshees” in 1/72 Scale

Yet another Curtiss P-40 with spectacular nose art, this is P-40N-5 serial number 42-105233 of the 89th Fighter Squadron, 80th Fighter Group stationed at Nagaghuli in Assam, India in 1944.  The Burma Banshees each carried large skulls on the engine cowlings of their Warhawks, and each skull was unique.  Decals are from the kit and are printed by Cartograph.  Living up to their reputation, the decals performed flawlessly.
