Interesting way of doing it.  I've only seen the above the wing engine pod version which was apparently a real life machine.

Like this...it seem a mockup...

Thanks

I still have two P-40's in the box on the workbench, and I'm tempted to build a variant..
Already knew this one, but it's still inspiring to look at.  :wub:

You must see the message I leave in this thread:

Nice work!  :thumbsup:

Good thinking, Kit!  :thumbsup: Or you could have a shark mouth, a death's head and a parrot on one aircraft (pirate's craft, maybe? :lol:).

I know the three nose art, and could be great.
thanks

Nice Work, Pablo. You have blended the engines in exceptionally well.
I have such a project in mind, too. "We" know that Curtiss made a twin-engined P-40 as a mock-up, and several people I know have tried to make one. Yours looks the best, I might add (UNTIL you see mine, perhaps?).
Mine will have a "bobbed" nose with armament, and be painted in a "Monument Valley" desert scheme with "Kokopelli" Native American insignia (white kokopelli on a blue circular background, with small red ring around the whole thing).

The "American Kokopelli Confederation" of Southwest Native American peoples decides to support the US in the war and offer their small air force. My official name for it will be the "Navahawk", known to the natives as a "Blood Brother".
In the meantime, I will admire yours!  :thumbsup:
Thanks for your kindless word, great history! I wait to see your twin engine.

Thanks Y'all...I must said now, the nose was taken from a P-80 and the fuselage has 1cmt, more long between the tail and the wing.
