Is this the old Academy kit reboxed, or a new one?

No, I did not forget this project and after more then a year, I am back to finish it. There is several project in various stage of work and hope they all will be completed. Now, I start preparation for final fit, this include to smooth all join lines and fit all parts and start painting. Decals will be for British sample, GA-M from no 112 Squadron. Interesting is that three P-40M have letters GA-M:

FR811,GAM, 43-5612, Missing Apr 8, 1944
FR861,GAM, 43-5755, Force landed north of Trogir, Yugoslavia Mar 22, 1944 following flak hit

My sample will be:

FR864,GAM, 43-5758, Crashed at Ripa Dec 20, 1943 after pilot bailed out following flak hit

Big problem for now is lack of any image of this plane.

"Several projects in various stages..."

Are we twin brothers? ;)
